Aston Martin has unveiled a glimpse of the all-new DBS GT Zagato. The stunning new car is an evolution the DBS Superleggera which was used as a starting point before the Zagato DNA was incorporated. It also shares some of the same design language as the original DB4 GT Zagato. At the front of the vehicle is a newly created and unique “dynamic” grille which dominates the car’s face. 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.
There are also some sharp rounded triangle headlights and a deep bonnet scoop and a carbon fibre roof.
In addition to this, there are gold accents across the vehicle including on the alloys, near the wheel arches leading into the doors and on the grille.
At the rear there is a large rear diffuser and bumper and unique rear lights which are embedded either side of a rear carbon fibre strip.
Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin Lagonda said, “This is a car that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too.
“Our dynamic grille gives us an opportunity to provide the car with two very different identities.
“When parked, DBS GT Zagato will almost look like it’s resting, but with the rear of the car still appearing muscular and primed for action.
“Only on start-up will the car truly become alert and ready to perform, delivering both an aural and visual treat for onlookers”.
Reichman adds, “Form and function are constantly in battle with one another, but this is a great example of where we have been able to utilise modern technologies to ensure no concession has been made on either side.
“It was important to me and our teams to deliver something as beautiful as the original DB4 GT Zagato and I feel that we have achieved that with this model and I can’t wait to see it in the metal”.
DBS GT Zagato is set for production in 2020, joining each of the 19 DB4 GT Zagato cars set to be created at Aston Martin Works this year.
The DBZ Centenary Collection which combines the DBS GT Zagato and DB4 GT Zagato are priced at £6million for the pair.
