The DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is one of the world’s most beautiful and instantly recognisable pieces of car design.
Creating a car fit to stand alongside it was always going to be a formidable challenge, but also a great motivation for British luxury car manufacturer and Italian coachbuilder Zagato.
Aston Martin released the first detailed renderings of the new DBS GT Zagato; the second half of the remarkable DBZ Centenary Collection. Paired to the build run of 19 DB4 GT Zagato Continuations, the DBS GT Zagato will only be available as part of the £6m (plus taxes) DBZ Centenary Collection, thereby becoming one of the rarest and most coveted of all the modern-era Aston Martin Zagatos.
First deliveries to customers will commence QTR 4 2019 for the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and QTR 4 2020 for the DBS GT Zagato.
Created to celebrate the centenary of the legendary Zagato signature, Aston Martin DBZ Centenary Collection is a unique project that pays tribute to an icon of the past and creates a classic of the future.
Inspired by the voluptuous shapes that previously dressed the original DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagatos designers have worked hard to conjure a similarly evocative design language.
A key design of the new luxury vehicle feature remains the iconic double-bubble roof. Stretching the full length of the canopy, this fresh interpretation delivers a clean and sculptural form that flows from the top of the front windscreen to the car’s rearmost tip, discarding the traditional rear windscreen in favour of a purer roofline. The double-bubble theme continues frontwards across the car’s
bonnet, reminiscent of the shape and form seen on original Aston Martin Zagato designs. These flowing curves arecomplemented by the model’s wide wrap-around windscreen, removing any hard lines above the car’s shoulder line.
“Both design teams at Aston Martin and Zagato have together risen to the task magnificently; taking the already fabulous DBS Superleggera and shaping something which retains its identity as an Aston Martin, but expresses itself as only a Zagato can. Sensational-looking and extremely rare, it is the modern incarnation of a timeless icon,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Lagonda’s Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer.
