Description

One of the most desirable cars ever made, the Aston Martin DB4GT was raced in period by the likes of motorsport greats Stirling Moss and Jim Clark. Almost 60 years after the model was introduced, Aston Martin set out to build 25 continuation examples of its Touring-bodied icon, and this new book from Porter Press tells the full story of that amazing project.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes access and stunning photography, Aston Martin DB4GT Continuation covers the history of the DB4GT as well as the challenges involved with restarting production at the legendary Newport Pagnell factory. An essential reference for enthusiasts as well as an entertaining record of this painstakingly impressive journey, this book is a fitting celebration of all things DB4GT.

The author

James Page grew up around motorsport, thanks to his father’s involvement in sprints and hill climbs, and spent his childhood devouring the many car-related books and magazines that could be found around the house. After studying journalism at Falmouth University, during which he contributed race reports to Motoring News and Autosport, he had a brief diversion into the world of professional golf before joining Future Publishing in 2005 as a production assistant. James then served as deputy editor of Classics Monthly between 2007 and 2011, when he moved to Classic & Sports Car. After spending three years as deputy editor, he became the magazine’s editor in 2014. He currently lives in South Gloucestershire with his wife, two children and a temperamental MG 1300.
