If you are looking for the ultimate in Italian style, Zagato is celebrating 100 years in the business. For over 58 of those years they have collaborated with Aston Martin to combine English supercars along with Italian DNA. In a press release this morning, we’ve learned the details of their 100th anniversary. The guests of honor will be 19 pairs of the DBZ Centenary Collection.
It is comprised of a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation alongside a DBS GT Zagato. The first is a faithful resurrection of the classic DB4, using the latest in technology to replicate the original design while retaining David Brown’s traditional coachbuilding assembly techniques. Under the hood is a 380 horsepower version of the Marek straight-six, sending power to a limited-slip differential through a 4-speed manual transmission.
The other half of this equation is the new DBS GT Zagato. Based on the new DBS Superleggera, it combines the most potent series-production car with a traditional double-bubble roof. Only one teaser shot and an illustration were included with the release, but we’re sure we’ll see more of it soon. Other Zagato hallmarks will be seen inside and out, and like the DB4, only 19 will be produced. They won’t be sold individually, and pricing for each pair is £6m (not including taxes). This translates to $7.88 Million and change, so we hope at least one pair makes it to the US.
