Aston Martin Releases Teaser Shots of the DBS GT Zagato
It’s as Gorgeous as We Expected
Feast your eyes on the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato that will be sold next to the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. The two cars will be sold as a package that costs a whopping $7.48 million. Only 19 examples of each car will be made.
The car is simply stunning, featuring a red paint job with carbon fiber and gold accents and wheels. Zagato and Aston Martin have a rich history together, and the DBS GT Zagato is a perfect embodiment of that relationship. The car features a massive grille with 108 different small diamond-shaped sections to it that are active. This means they open when the car is running and close when it’s parked. They open to let air get to the 6.0-liter V12 under the hood. This grille is something that Aston Martin’s Marek Reichman sounded uniquely excited about.
Our dynamic grille gives us an opportunity to provide the car with two very different identities. When parked, DBS GT Zagato will almost look like it’s resting, but with the rear of the car still appearing muscular and primed for action. Only on start-up will the car truly become alert and ready to perform, delivering both an aural and visual treat for onlookers.
The car overall is based on the DBS Superleggera, but it has some unique Zagato styling elements and some notable updates designed to make it unique and worthy of its high price tag. In addition to the large grille, there’s also a carbon-fiber roof that will make it to the production car. It’s special because it’s one large piece.
The DB4 GT Zagato will be a track-only car, but the DBS GT Zagato will be street legal, allowing you to take your Zagato Aston Martin just about anywhere.
