Bonham’s recently held their annual Aston Martin and Lagonda car auction over the weekend, and one car in particular stole the show. A one-of-a-kind Bertone-bodied 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT, dubbed the ‘Jet’, was sold for an insane amount of $4,928,679. At that price, its the highest paid for an Aston Martin at an auction, ever.
This car was the result of Aston Martin commissioning Bertone to create a Gran Turismo version of the DB4GT that would be revealed at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show. It was the last car off the line and is a complete one-off.
The previous owner had The Jet restored by the factory and has since won 12 awards at various prestigious car shows.
James Knight, Bonhams Group Motoring Director, said: “I really did not think we could eclipse the record-breaking total achieved at this sale last year, but I am thrilled that – in Aston Martin’s centenary year – we have achieved just that. To sell every lot in an auction is almost unprecedented.
