Aston Martin has delivered a further glimpse of the final production intent exterior of its upcoming DBS GT Zagato model. Paired with the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation to complete the DBZ Centenary Collection – of which only 19 will be created and are priced at £6m for the pair – these latest renders provide a fresh look at some of the model’s key design features.
Taking Aston Martin’s most potent series production car - the acclaimed 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 previously dressed the original DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagatos designers have worked hard to conjure a similarly evocative design language.
An unequivocal statement of luxury, exclusivity and purity, DBS GT Zagato delivers a commanding presence whether parked or in motion. At the car’s front, a newly created and unique “dynamic” grille allows the car’s frontal area to transform its appearance. When stationary, each of the 108-individual diamond-shaped carbon fibre pieces remain flush with the car’s beautiful formed exterior. However, upon start-up DBS GT Zagato will appear to flutter into life, as each piece opens to allow the car’s twin-turbo V12 to breathe.
While the front end will be intricately finished, Aston Martin’s design studio have utilised a camera-operated rear view central mirror, to accommodate the previously shown full length carbon fibre roof. Today’s images showcase the final design for this large, single piece of carbon fibre covering where the rear windscreen would typically be placed. Instead, DBS GT Zagato is treated to a pure and simple roofline without any compromises on practicality to the driver.
