Aston Martin to Build Limited-Edition DBS GT Zagato
Unique, Interesting, and Expensive
Aston Martin can’t seem to stop debuting awesome cars. Now the company is showing off the limited-edition DBS GT Zagato. The car uses Aston’s DBS Superleggera as the starting point and then the car gets a new body that’s absolutely gorgeous. The car is supposed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Zagato design house. It will also serve to mark 60 years of the companies working collaboratively.
The DBS GT Zagato will be paired with a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and come with a price tag of $7.9 million before taxes and other fees kick in.
The DBS GT Zagato is a truly unique car despite the fact that it shares so much with the DBS Superleggera. The car has a special double bubble roof, large front grille, wraparound windshield, and all around muscular curves. It’s a long and handsome front-engined car. Speaking of the engine the car will get, Aston hasn’t released technical details, unfortunately.
However, Carscoops speculates that it could be the 5.2-liter V12 that’s in the Superleggera. If that is the case, then the engine would be good for 715 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, unless some maniac at Aston gets ahold of it and tries to get more power out of it.
The car will be made in limited numbers. According to the press release, only 19 of them will make their way to the public. Aston will begin delivery of the cars in the fourth quarter of 2020. The DB4 GT Zagato will be delivered later this year. Both cars will be built in the UK.
