There will be Works & # 39; Third & # 39; continuation & # 39; car after DB4 GT, of which 25 were built, and DB4 GT Zagato, of which 19 were sold. The former cost £ 1.5million plus local taxes. Zagato was only available as half of the £ 6million & # 39; DBZ Centenary Collection & # 39; together with a special DBS Superstore.
Why 25 DB5s? Mainly because next year's Bond movie, set for release only under a year from now, is the 25th of the franchise (the odds are a DB5 will be in it, along with an unspecified electric Aston). But also because Works must regain its investment. These things are not cheap to buy and they are not cheap to build either. The majority are already sold to customers all over the world, and Aston is confident customers will want the cars to be seen publicly. That they will not only hide them in garages, ready to be turned twice the price a few years later. Wishful thinking?
