Chassis: DB4GT/0182/R
Chassis '0182/R' was one of two built for John Ogier's Essex Racing Stable to a special lightweight specification. Commonly referred to by its registration number '1VEV', it was entered at Le Mans in 1961. Sadly a head-gasket failure ended its charge early. Along with its two sister cars it was then entered in and driven on the road to the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood. Roy Salvadori placed third behind two of the dominant Ferrari 250 GT SWBs. It continued to be raced through to the fall of 1962 with a class win at the Trophée d'Auvergne as the best result. One of the most famous of all DB4 GT Zagatos, 1VEV sold for £1.54 million at auction back in 1990. In more recent years, it was meticulously restored for its longtime owner. He has since raced and shown the ex-Essex Racing Stable Aston Martin at select events around the world.
