Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato: More details now available.
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.
At the DBS GT Zagato’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 remains flush with the car’s beautiful formed exterior. However, upon start-up the car will appear to flutter into life, as each piece opens to allow the car’s twin-turbo V12 to breathe.
“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,” said Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin Lagonda.
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.
Reichman adds, “…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.
