52 of 52 On December 10th, at RM Sotheby’s New York sale, it’ll be Aston Martin’s turn to join the ten million plus club when a rare (one of 19) DB4 GT Zagato goes under the hammer. It’s expected to fetch at least $16 million.

When auction records are set, it’s usually something red with a prancing horse that’s on the receiving end of the eight-figure winning bid. On Dec. 10, at RM Sotheby’s New York sale, it’ll be Aston Martin’s turn to join the $10 million-plus club when a rare (one of 19) DB4 GT Zagato goes under the hammer. It’s expected to fetch at least $16 million. Here’s why we think it just might be the most desirable closed sports car ever:

The competition is tough when you get to this level, and the admittedly arbitrary list of finalists includes the Ferrari 250 GTO. Ferrari 250 Short Wheelbase Berlinetta. Jaguar E-type Lightweight Coupé. the Ferrari 250 LM and the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. They’re all weapons-grade sports racers from the early 1960s, the golden age of so-called dual-purpose competition cars, that, depending on your level of masochism or resemblance to Steve McQueen, you could actually drive on the street.

All of the above are wickedly sexy. But the Aston wins in the details, from the trademark Zagato of Milan double-bubble roof (that’s mirrored in the cam cover bulges on the hood) to the elegant Frenched tail lamps. The Milanese clearly knew how to do for sports cars what they did for fried, milk-fed veal. The short wheelbase and prominent apex-predator rear haunches give it a squat and pugnacious look that is almost impossibly tough and pretty at the same time.

It’s still an Aston, so elegance demands that it lack the fussy vents, scoops and side-exhaust of some of the competition (features that, incidentally, probably made the aforesaid competition far more competitive). That and the fact that the DB4GT was not a purpose-built race car, but instead derived from the DB4 grand tourer.
