The Bonhams Paris sale was headlined by their reveal of ex-Le Mans, Goodwood TT, Jim Clark, quasi-works, Essex Racing stable 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato, which will be made available for auction at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed Sale on 13th July 2018, by Bonhams.
With a registration plate of ‘2 VEV’ this car is the most important DB4GT Zagato in history for several reasons. It is one of only two of the legendary ‘VEV’ quasi-works cars, and one of only three configured in the ultra-light DP209 specification. If that were not enough, it was also driven, in period, by the legendary racing superstar Jimmy Clark and comes from long-term, single-family ownership of nearly 50 years. These are attributes that none of the other 18 DB4GT Zagatos can boast.
