Aston Martin’s DBS GT Zagato adds Italian flair and glittering farkles to the British muscle car

Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato Shows Off Its Stunning Final Form.

Aston Martin gave us our first look at the upcoming DBS GT Zagato a few months ago in the form of three sketches, but the British brand has now released three full-fledged renderings that show the limited-run grand tourer in its unexaggerated final form—its digital final form, at least.

Aston Martin has new details on the DBS GT Zagato sports car that it says reveals a further glimpse of the final production intent of the exterior of the car. The DBS GT Zagato will be paired up with the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation to complete the DBZ Centenary Collection. Aston plans to make only 19 pairs of these rides with pricing at £6m for the pair.

Aston says that the new renderings give a fresh look at the key design features of both new models. The DBS GT Zagato started as a DBS Superleggera, and Aston says that the DBS GT Zagato “embodies the next evolution” of the Zagato design. The car gets a new and unique “dynamic” grille at the front that transforms its appearance.

Aston also fitted the car with 108-individual diamond-shaped carbon fiber pieces that are flush with the exterior of the car. When the car started those little carbon fiber bits “flutter into life” as they open to let the twin-turbo V12 breathe. Aston CEO Marek Reichman says that the design of the car is to give onlookers an aural and visual treat when the car starts.

The car has a full-length carbon fiber roof and to allow the driver to see out of the back of the car; it uses a camera-operated rear view central mirror. That full-length carbon fiber roof extends to where the rear window would typically be.

The car is a wild design that looks very cool with its red paint and gold trim on the exterior. Aston says that the DBS GT Zagato is set for production in 2020 joining each of the 19 DB4 GT Zagato cars to be built this year. Perhaps Aston will offer a video of the moving grill area it is taking up so we can get a look at the feature
