Speed King's beautiful old Aston Martin DB4 GT for sale...<br />
<br />
The rare Aston Martin car first owned by tragic speed record breaker Donald Campbell has emerged for sale for almost £3m.<br />
<br />
The 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT was one of just 75 to be built by the iconic British marque.<br />
<br />
It was previously owned by British adrenaline junkie Campbell, who is best known for his eight speed records on land and water before his death.<br />
<br />
He remains the the most prolific water speed record breaker of all-time and is still the only man ever to set both records in the same year in 1964.<br />
<br />
Campbell died during a final water speed record attempt on Coniston Water in the Lake District in 1967 and his body was not recovered until 2001.
