That’s Baller: 1961 Limited Edition Aston Martin Worth $20.1 Million is Heading to the Auction


As the most expensive British motor vehicle, it’s no surprise that an extremely rare, limited edition 1961 DB4GT Zagato Aston Martin, worth $20.1 Million, is now being auctioned off.

⠀⠀
The luxury vehicle is reportedly heading to an auction room in Paris. However, whoever wants this vehicle is not going to get much use out of it considering the bodywork is so fragile that just pressing on a panel could leave a handprint in the metal, reports Telegraph.

⠀⠀
The model is one of two cars that were stripped of their weight, making the bodywork super delicate.

James Knight, Chairman of auction house Bonhams motoring department said:
“It sort of epitomizes everything that’s so great about Britain—bespoke, handmade, beautiful quality —and then when you clothe the car in this Italian Zagato style, you get the best of both worlds”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
“It is, by some distance, the most valuable British motor car ever to be offered at a European auction, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this historically significant vehicle.”
