It can not be done, they said: take one of the most beautiful automotive designs ever (Aston Martin DB4 / DB5 by Carrozzeria Touring, 1958 / 1963) and bring to market in (limited) series production a contemporary version with modern technologies applied. Well, David Brown (not related to Aston Martin's David Brown, hence "DB") did it: enter the Speedback GT.
Combining classic design with state-of-art engineering and handcraftsmanship, the Speedback is a coachbuilt contemporary GT with the heart and soul of a classic. It is built on a Jaguar XK alloy platform, using the drivetrain of the 5.0-litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine generating 510 bhp with a six-speed automatic transmission. Fabulous.
They don't come cheap, what do you expect. But you know what they say: those who ask for the price can't afford it :-)

Aston Martin presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the spectacular Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2+2. This one-off build was commissioned by a collector named Barry Weir. The original Aston Martin DB4 gts jet 2+3 was launched back in 1968; only 20 were built. The gen 2 was based on the modern Aston Martin Rapide. Though the gen 2 was received so well that Aston Martin considered making a small production run, only one of the gen 2 was built. 
It is now for sale.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
