Rare Aston Martin DB4GT Lightweight sells for £2.4 million

Published 11 December 2019

A rare Aston Martin was the star of Bonhams’ Bond Street auction. The 1961 DB4GT Lightweight was first owned by renowned hill climb competitor Phil Scragg. It sold for £2,367,000 at the Mayfair event.

The DB4GT, one of nine examples completed to special Lightweight specification by Aston Martin, was offered to the market for the first time in more than 50 years. It was the subject of lively bidding between prospective buyers in the room and on the telephone before being sold to an overseas collector.

Another Aston Martin that proved popular with bidders was the 1994 Virage Volante 6.3-Litre. Delivered new to HRH The Prince of Wales, who drove it for 23 years, and built to his bespoke specification, the car sold for £235,750.
