Aston Martin has a near 60-year-long history of pairing with Italian design house Zagato, and the duo just made its most recent reveal. The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato (take a breath) has made its in-the-metal debut after being announced in photos earlier this year. The new Zagato must be bought in a pair with its reimagined retro equivalent, the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, and just 19 will be made to pay homage to the original 19 DB4 GTs that were built in the 1960s. Both cars made their first real-world appearance at the newly formed Audrain’s Newport Concours in Rhode Island.
The DBS GT Zagato is a special take on the stunning DBS Superleggera super-GT from Aston Martin. Compared to the “standard” Superleggera, this Aston Martin special edition car has different body panels, a front grille made from carbon fiber with a unique cross-hatched design that can open and close depending on the situation, and a twin-turbo V-12 that now makes 760 hp.
Inside the new Zagato you’ll find 3D printed interior finishes and gold knobs for things like the climate controls. The car featured at the Concours was finished in Caithness Spicy Red leather that features the customary Zagato ‘Z’ seat quilting. If that doesn’t suit your fancy, Aston Martin’s Q division—the company’s in-house bespoke atelier—can help you customize your DBS GT Zagato even more.
The pair comes with an eye-watering price tag of more than $7.5 million total. Not exactly a bargain, but if you had the money, the beautiful DB4 GT Continuation might make it worth your while.
