Zagato is about to celebrate their 100th anniversary and is doing so with the DBZ Centenary Collection. This collection includes two cars: a continuation of the DB4 GT Zagato and the newly revealed DBS GT Zagato. The DBS GT Zagato is based on the DBS Superleggera, meaning it will be powered by a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine that produces 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. One design aspect that will surely catch everyone’s eyes is the double-bubble roof (that’s fun to say). This design feature spans the full length of the canopy. Separating the roof from the hood is a wrap-around windscreen, a design cue that always looks fantastic.
“In the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation we have one of the world’s most beautiful and instantly recognisable pieces of car design,” says Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Lagonda’s Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer. “Creating a car fit to stand alongside it was always going to be a formidable challenge, but also a great motivation. Both design teams at Aston Martin and Zagato have together risen to the task magnificently; taking the already fabulous DBS Superleggera and shaping something which retains its identity as an Aston Martin, but expresses itself as only a Zagato can. Sensational-looking and extremely rare, it is the modern incarnation of a timeless icon.”
Only 19 examples of the DBS GTG Zagato will be created, each of them paired with a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. Together, the collection will cost £6m (plus taxes), which translates to roughly $7.9 million.
