Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato Shows Off Its Stunning Final Form

Aston Martin has revealed the DBS GT Zagato in its final "on-sale" form, although we'll use that word with some caution here as only 19 of them will ever be produced. 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. The £6 million ($7.48 million) pair forms what Aston calls the DBZ Centenary Collection, with only 19 examples of each set to be made.

The two are collaborating on the new DBS GT Zagato supercar based on the DBS Superleggera, new teaser shots for which were released on Tuesday.

An unequivocal statement of luxury, exclusivity and purity, DBS GT Zagato delivers a commanding presence whether parked or in motion.

The latest photos highlight the unique "dynamic" grille that dominates the car's frontal area. To that end the grille is not merely very big, but "dynamic" too; when stationary, each of the 108 individual diamond-shaped carbon fibre segments will close, remaining flush with the car's 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.

"This is a auto that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too", Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said. Our dynamic grille gives us an opportunity to provide the auto with two very different identities.

The roof becomes a single sweeping carbon sheet, to the point where there's not even a back window - the rear vision mirror is electronic, and displays a camera view backwards.

If you buy an Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato you'll get a wild exaggeration of Aston Martin design language with a insane active grille with 108 moving parts and a carbon fibre roof that completely replaces the rear window. Instead, DBS GT Zagato is treated to a pure and simple roofline without any compromises on practicality to the driver.

Zagato has taken the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera and done wonderful things to it. "It was important to me and our teams to deliver something as attractive 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".
