Details on Aston Martin’s latest special edition model have been released, and it is set to be one of the most exclusive offerings to date from the marque. This unique project is an exemplary example of how Aston Martin is using past icons to produce future classics.
Built to celebrate the Italian styling house Zagato’s centenary year, only 19 models will be released. All 19 will be sold exclusively as a pair alongside a DB4 GT Zagato continuation model. Both cars will be true works of art that showcase the remarkable relationship between Aston Martin and Zagato whose collaborative working has spanned almost sixty years and produced some of the most breath-taking and exciting cars to grace the roads. This latest edition is set to become on the most stunning modern incarnations of a timeless icon and one of the rarest most-coveted modern-era Aston Martin Zagatos ever made.
As a true partnership between Aston Martin and Zagato, the DBS GT Zagato will not only use the DBS Superleggera as its platform but will also share mechanical underpinnings including the 5.12-litre V12 engine with 715bhp.
The ‘double bubble’ style roof is styled in keeping with the early Zagato models and will run right from the front windscreen to the tail of the car and will replace the rear windscreen. Meanwhile, the front will be styled with a similar bubble design including new headlights and a reworked Zagato front grille.
The DB4 GT Zagato will be a true continuation model and as such will be a track-only car. The specification will match the 58-year-old original design and will include an updated version of the straight-six 380hp engine.
Continuation DB4 GT Zagato models are due to be delivered at the end of this year, while the DBS GT Zagato will be released in 2020.
