At the Newport Concours in the U.S. last weekend, Aston Martin showcased the DBS GT Zagato (DBZ), the sibling of the DB4 GT Zagato, to celebrate the centenary of the Series.
The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato displayed at Newport was a Supernova Red, a paint color exclusively reserved for this exclusive supercar.
For looks, this hypercar is decked with Centenary Specification, which is highlighted by contrasting carbon fiber accents with Satin Black and Gold 3D machined wheels. Aside from the gloss finish carbon fiber roof and rear diffuser, the eye is drawn to the model’s literal and figurative jewellery in the shape of its solid 18-carat gold wings badges front and rear, black anodized active front grille and its gold anodised side strakes and center lock wheel nuts.
Moving to the interior, the DBS GT Zagato comes clothed with Caithness Spicy Red leather, Zagato ‘Z’ seat quilting and satin twill exposed carbon fiber, fitted to both the paddle shifts and steering wheel.
Featuring a world first, DBS GT Zagato utilizes the first automotive application of configurable carbon and metal 3D-printed interior finishes. A beautiful central ‘saddle’ design features a unique parametric, inter-locking form, available in a range of three materials and finishes. This includes the choice of printed Carbon, Aluminium, or Gold PVD (Centenary spec). As with all Aston Martins, customization and bespoke are available as per customers’ requests.
The DBS GT Zagato packs 760bhp through its 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 power unit. All the electronic aids are available to ensure extreme aerodynamics and sheer exhilaration.
Each of the 19 DB4 GT Zagato Continuation cars are being built at Aston Martin Works to the highest possible quality, with the application of modern engineering advancements and performance enhancements.
All DB4 GT Zagato Continuation cars will be delivered by the end of 2019. With a price tag of 6 million pounds, each pair represents the most valuable new sports cars yet built by Aston Martin.
