Aston Martin has revealed renderings of its gorgeous GT Zagato pairing. Details below...
James Bond’s favourite car company has revealed the latest in its collaboration with Italian master coachbuilder, Zagato. Following from the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation model, due for delivery toward the end of this year, 2020 will see a limited run of DBS GT Zagato cars too.
This latest limited-edition Aston Martin pays homage to the 1960s era DB4 Zagato, and as such it features the distinctive double-bubble roof and overall bodywork unfamiliar to any current DBS. Unlike the DB4 GT Zagato, it is a thoroughly more advanced and engineering execution - using Aston Martin's latest engine and vehicle platform technology.
Aston Martin has confirmed that the DBS GT Zagato will be an evolution of its Superleggera platform, which means a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 with at least 533kW. The overall configuration will be rear-wheel drive, with an aft-mounted ZF 8-speed automatic transmission converting the surge of torque from that twin-turbocharged V12 into rolling momentum.
The business strategy with these Zagato cars is to offer customers an official Aston Martin resto-mod DB4, the opportunity to buy two stunning designs – one classic, the other very contemporary – in one paired transaction.
As part of the DBZ Centenary Collection, the DB4 GT Zagato and Aston’s vastly more modern DBS GT Zagato, will be sold as a pair, for the price or R110-million. To guarantee exclusivity, Aston Martin will be producing only 19 examples of each.
