Aston Martin’s New 760HP DBS GT Zagato Special Is Your Golden Ticket To Excess

Aston Martin has unveiled the new DBS GT Zagato at the Audrain’s Newport Concours, as the modern twin to the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation.

The British car maker will offer the two cars only as pairs -called the DBZ Centenary Collection- to just 19 collectors for the price of £6 million ($7.39 million) before taxes.

The new DBS GT Zagato is powered by the Superleggera’s twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 unit, only here it’s upgraded to 760 HP. The display car is finished in the exclusive Supernova Red paired with exposed carbon fiber accents and gold-black 3D machined wheels over a Spicy Red leather interior.

Speaking of the cabin, here you’ll find the first automotive application of metal 3D-printed interior finishes that include the central ‘saddle’, which here is finished in Gold PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition). This finish requires almost 100 hours of print time with additional polishing and post-processing by the company’s specialists in order to achieve the perfect lustrous finish.

If gold is too much for you, Aston Martin also offers the choice between printed carbon and aluminum for the interior of your new DBS GT Zagato. The company’s customization service ‘Q’ can also help customers to create their own, truly bespoke part by utilizing the latest additive processes. The new technology opens a new world of interior customization for those willing to commission a truly bespoke cabin.

The exterior of the new DBS GT Zagato is equally striking, featuring a set of solid 18-carat gold wing badges, gold anodised side strakes and center lock wheel nuts, a gloss carbon fiber roof and rear diffuser and of course that huge active front grille.

The grille itself is also the first automotive application of configurable carbon, featuring 108 individual diamond-shaped carbon pieces that remain flush with the bodywork when the car is parked and open when the car starts up to let the air go through.

“Aston Martin’s elegance, class and purity of style have always blended perfectly with our own rationalistic design language”, said Andrea Zagato, Chief Executive Officer of the Design House. “Zagato’s Centenary represents a bridge between the past and the future, strengthened by the shared vision for an innovative approach to collectibles, recently coupled in pairs and twins with the aim to reach new standards of exclusivity in the world.”

      Zagato has a hit rate of about 10%. They’re an absolute garbage coach builder.

    Usually I love Zagatos, but that interior is a bit much… It’s so crazy red and gaudy looking.

  • Elpatore

    I think the grille is about two sizes too big, but that interior design is a masterpiece, could be better styled (colors) but my god it looks amazing.

  • I WISH I READ THE COMMENTS BEFORE SEARCHING FOR A PIC OF THE HIDEOUS GRILLE. I STILL REMEMBER MY HORROR SEEING THIS AT THE CAR SHOW A COUPLE YEARS AGO.

      have you recovered, out of hospital yet ?

  • Joko Santoso

    Too much of anything is bad. This time: the grille, it ruins an otherwise very beautiful car. Why didn’t they just follow the step of the Vanquish Zagato? The Vanquish Zagato is perfect in any body style. Especially in shooting break body, it’s peerless.

    Btw, the DB4 Zagato is soo beautiful without obnoxious grille.
