The first glimpse of DBS GT Zagato by Aston Martin

The first glimpse of DBS GT Zagato by Aston Martin

With the centenary celebrations for Italian design house Zagato approaching, the first detailed renderings of the new DBS GT Zagato have been released, marking the second half of the remarkable DBZ Centenary Collection.

The DBZ Centenary Collection is a unique project that pays tribute to an icon of the past and creates a classic of the future. This unique collaboration, between Aston Martin and Zagato, extends a remarkable creative partnership spanning almost 60 years, one that has consistently generated bold and breathtakingly exciting designs.

Taking Aston Martin’s most potent series production car – the DBS Superleggera – as its starting point, the DBS GT Zagato embodies the next evolution in Aston Martin Zagato design language. Inspired by the voluptuous shapes that dressed the original DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagato designers have worked hard to conjure a similarly evocative design language. A key design feature remains the 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 are complemented by the model’s wide wrap-around windscreen, removing any hard lines above the car’s shoulder line.

Muscular rear haunches deliver powerful and purposeful definition to the car’s side profile, while a unique wheel design, headlamps and a striking front grille – a key feature for all Aston Martin Zagato designs – continue to deliver a modern twist on the DB4 GT Zagato’s classic form.

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 Q4 2019 for the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and QTR 4 2020 for the DBS GT Zagato.
