Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato revealed

Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato revealed

The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato and DB4 GT Zagato continuation are finally ready to pose together in the real world, and they look stunning. Zagato models tend to be less about engineering and all about the design.

Almost two months after the debut of the first half, the DB4 Zagato Continuation, the modern pairing was shown off publicly for the first time on Friday at the newly formed Audrain's Newport Concours in Rhode Island.

Aston Martin's ultra-exclusive DBZ Centenary collection has been revealed in full, with the DBS GT Zagato joining the DB4 GT Zagato Autocar drove earlier this week. The front and rear badges are 18-carat gold.

The British luxury carmaker has torn the wraps off the second supercar that makes up an anniversary duo with the vintage DB4 GT Zagato. The trim includes a mix of carbon fibre and lots of textured gold elements.

Inside, the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato gets Caithness Spicy Red leather, Zagato "Z" seat quilting and satin-twill exposed carbon fibre. Power comes from the same 5.2-litre turbocharged V12 but the output is increased from 715bhp to 760bhp.

Based on the DBS Superleggera, the DBS GT Zagato is heavily reworked by the Italian coachbuilder, Zagato. Buyers can specify one of three materials for the car's central "saddle", including Gold PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition), which requires 100 hours of print time, followed by additional polishing. Just 19 will be produced. What's more, the connoisseurs who'll own these limited-run units can also personalize their models through Aston's Q division.

Speaking ahead of the car's unveiling, Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, said, "The design studio at Aston Martin has risen to the task magnificently, working alongside Andrea Zagato and his team". Even though pricing starts from £6 million ($10.9 million) plus taxes, all 19 are already spoken for.
