Aston Martin has officially started production of its DB4 G.T. Continuation cars at the historic Newport Pagnell facility in Buckinghamshire, England.
The Newport Pagnell site has served as the headquarters of Aston Martin Works since 2007. The facility is used to oversee the automaker’s heritage sales, service, spares and restorations ventures, and is now serving as the production site for the DB4 G.T. Continuation. The site also once served as the only Aston Martin production site and its main headquarters.
The DB4 G.T. Continuation will be limited to just 25 units. The vehicle is an exact recreation of the DB4 G.T. racecar that is being built using the same 340 hp 3.7-liter straight-six engine and four-speed manual transmission as the original. All 25 examples of the race-inspired vehicle have been spoken for, so if you wanted in on this amazingly cool program then you’re a bit late.

Aston Martin is currently working on opening a third production site in addition to its existing Gaydon and Newport Pagnell locations. The factory, which is being built in St. Athan, Wales, will be the production site for the upcoming DBX crossover and other future vehicles from the British manufacturer.
“For more than half a century Newport Pagnell was the heart of Aston Martin,” said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. “Thanks to the efforts of those at Aston Martin Works it has since become the torchbearer for our Heritage division. It’s immensely satisfying and wholly appropriate that this historic, yet state-of-the-art facility should now form a key part of our expansion. Together with Gaydon and our all-new production facility at St Athan – which is progressing towards completion – it’s my pleasure to see production officially return to Newport Pagnell.”
