The first Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is to make its public debut at the world's most famous endurance motorsport event later this week.

Breaking cover at Aston Martin's VIP hospitality facility alongside the famous French circuit, the first complete DB4 GT Zagato Continuation - one of just 19 cars being made - will be on show throughout the gruelling 24-hour race.

The production model of this track-only sports car, the latest in Aston Martin's hugely successful Continuation programme, which began with the DB4 GT Continuation series in 2017, represents the culmination of around 4,500 hours of painstaking and meticulous artisan craftsmanship.

As with all the Continuation cars, the Zagato has been created at Aston Martin's globally renowned Heritage Division headquarters in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. Now the largest, best equipped and most knowledgeable Aston Martin restoration centre in the world, the invaluable and highly specialist skills nurtured at Aston Martin Works are perfectly suited to the brand's celebrated Continuation projects.
