Unique Aston breaks cover at Bonhams

| 14 Feb 2013

The stunning ‘one of a kind’ Aston Martin ‘Jet’ is estimated to make between £2.8-3.8million when it goes under the hammer for the first time in 25 years at Bonhams’ Newport Pagnell sale on 18 May.

Penned by a young Giorgetto Guigiaro – now one of the world’s most celebrated designers – while he was at Bertone, the car made its debut at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and is based on the last DB4GT to roll off the production line.

The ‘Jet’ is presented in concours condition, and has 12 prestigious awards to its name including First in Class at Pebble Beach and the Hurlingham Club, plus Best in Show at Villa d’Este.

The machine joins a growing list of desirable Astons already confirmed for the sale.
