First Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation Track Day

Yesterday, five customers from across the globe drove their own DB4 G.T. Continuation cars at the home of British Motorsport, Silverstone Circuit. In 2016, it was announced that the iconic model would be celebrated with a special series of 25 track-only Continuation cars built to lightweight specification by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell. Fittingly for a car created to celebrate one of Aston Martin’s most illustrious competition models, the DB4 G.T. Continuation was built to be enjoyed on track. Aston Martin Works have begun the two-year international track driving programme held at many the world’s finest race tracks, the first being Silverstone Circuit.

DB4 GT Production Returns to Aston Martin’s Historic Newport Pagnell

Another landmark in Aston Martin’s ‘Second Century Plan’ was achieved with production officially returning to the company’s historic Newport Pagnell site. It marks a uniquely significant moment in which history has come full-circle, with a special run of 25 DB4 G.T. Continuation cars being built at the same site as the original DB4 G.T.s were made almost sixty years ago. Since moving to its purpose-built headquarters and state-of-the-art production facility at Gaydon in 2003, Aston Martin’s Newport Pagnell premises has exclusively been home to Aston Martin Works – the heart of the marque’s unrivaled heritage sales, service, spares, and restoration operation. Production of the Mk1 Vanquish ceased in 2007, but since that time countless classic Aston Martins have been restored to their former glory by the passionate and highly-skilled Works team.
