Behold: the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT: pre-Bond, but similar in looks to its successor, the DB5. The luxurious DB4 was produced from 1958 to 1963 and its GT variant was sportier with a shorter wheelbase, lightweight aluminium panels and a more powerful 302bhp, 3.7-litre engine.

Only 75 were ever made and this vehicle is one of just 30 left hand drive models. Fully restored in 2020 and beefed up with a 4.7-litre engine, it’s expected to fetch at least €2.8 million at auction this Friday.

    A beaut.
    The Astons and the E-Type were among the greatest sports cars ever built.
    None of your red Italian rubbish.

        I’ve always had an interest in colloquialisms and local phrases:
        I always heard this as “ass’s roar”.
        But I suppose arse’s roar works also!
