Feast Your Eyes on This 760 HP Beauty
At the Audrain’s Newport Concourse Aston Martin revealed the new DBS GT Zagato. It is the counterpoint to the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation that we’ve written about in the past. The vehicles will be offered only as pairs. The DBZ Centenary Collection as the pairs will be known will go to only 19 special collectors for $7.39 million before taxes.
Under the hood of the gorgeous machine is the Superleggera’s twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine. Aston has up-tuned that engine so that it makes a whopping 760 hp. While the engine is impressive what’s truly important here is the exterior and interior of the car.
The exterior is finished in the stunning Supernova Red. That red is accented by carbon fiber accents and gold and black 3D machined wheels. Those accents are accompanied by 18-carat gold wing badges, gold anodized center lock wheel nuts, and a gloss carbon-fiber roof and rear diffuser. The massive grille at the front is active, and features 108 individual diamond-shaped carbon parts. These parts open and close depending on whether or not the car is on or off.
Inside you’ll find an interior that’s color is aptly called Spicy Red. The cabin uses the first automotive application of 3D-printed metal.
These gold PVS (Physical Vapour Deposition) touches take 100 hours of printing time. From there each piece must be polished. It’s an utterly swanky interior, to say the least. Not all customers had to go with the red and gold color scheme. They could choose carbon fiber or aluminum if they wanted.
Aston’s Q service can use additive machining to create a truly customized interior if the customers choose. The service can do just about anything to customize the vehicle’s interior.
