  1. Oh Dear!
    This is not a DB4GT. They didn’t make a series IV GT.
    All GT’s have GT in the chassis number.
    Its a DB4 with a GT engine in!

    • You are right, a small number of copies were not produced as a GT version (and the above car is one of them), but they called this compilation of copies Aston Martin DB4 Vantage GT, although not all had the “Vantage” outfit and none was technically a “GT”.
