Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato | M-132 | Green
Many thanks are due to Aston Martin Lagonda Limited and its Heritage Center for their generous advice and support while CMC was developing a high-end replica of the world-famous DB4 Zagato – the M-132 model you see here.
Such advice and support are invaluable since there are many variations on the nineteen original DB4 Zagatos. In fact, each of these originals is known to be unique on its own. Even if we had adhered to a particular original, it could have assumed different looks at different points in time. Historic accuracy, therefore, is relative and may well be elusive in this case.
At the recommendation of our licensor, CMC decided not to base its replica on any one particular chassis of the nineteen originals. Rather the replica is designated to capture what is most reminiscent of the defining characteristics of the DB4 Zagato and its historic involvement in international racing. Representativeness rather than “historic accuracy” was a top priority.
We are especially obliged to the Aston Martin Heritage Center for providing us with access to such an exemplar, which is on display at Verkehrshaus Lucerne (Lucerne Museum of Transport). Mr. Ercole Spada, chief stylist of the Zagato studio house in the 1960s, is known to have scanned this exhibit digitally and found it “identical” to what he had had in mind when designing the famous DB4 GT Zagato.
The M-132 replica that CMC has developed is approved by Aston Martin. It is a powerful reminder of the DB4 Zagatos in terms of its characteristically neat styling, cutting-edge mechanics, and historic involvement in international racing (i.e. Aston Martin racing green and engine hood latches, etc.). We hope customers will find in their hearts appreciation of this approach, as well.
