Previewed in a few official renderings, it’s been created to mark the 100th anniversary of the Italian design house and almost 60 years of collaboration between the two companies.
Essentially a re-bodied version of the DBS Superleggera, the new DBS GT Zagato will be sold as part of the DBZ Centenary Collection and will be made in just 19 examples. Each one comes with a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation as well and costs a whopping £6 million ($7.9/€7 million) in the United Kingdom, before taxes.
Visually, the new supercar sets itself apart with the double-bubble roof reminiscent of the original Aston Martin Zagatos. It also gets a huge gaping grille, muscular bonnet, wide wrap-around windscreen, muscular rear haunches, new grille, headlights and unique wheels.
Aston hasn’t announced any technical details, so we cannot say for sure whether the 5.2-liter V12 has a higher output than the Superlegerra’s 725 PS (715 hp / 533 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, where it’s coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, allowing for a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 3.4 seconds and a 339 km/h (211 mph) top speed.
Production of the new DBS GT Zagato will take place as Aston Martin’s Gaydon plant in the UK, with the first units to be shipped in the fourth quarter of 2020. The DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, on the other hand, will be delivered from the fourth quarter of this year.
