Aston Martin has released official renderings of the DBS GT Zagato. Last fall, to help celebrate the 100th anniversary, Aston Martin and Zagato announced they would build a special version of the DB4 GT Zagato. The two companies didn’t stop there, offering a variant to each DB4. The newly released super car will be based on the DB11 model, the DBS Superleggera, charged with the twin-turbo V12 with over 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. 

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “The partnership between Aston Martin and Zagato is one of the most fruitful and enduring in the automotive world. With Zagato celebrating its centenary next year, what better way to celebrate this landmark – and the long-standing bond between our two great companies – than creating these 19 pairs of cars. As an engineer I would always say my favorite Aston Martin is the next one, but I have to say I’m struggling to think of a finer two-car garage than this!”

With a redesigned exterior, the front grille is one piece similar to the Vantage model. The grandiose double bubble roof is a focal point stretching through the tail. The center of the hood mirrors the double bubble feature. The taillights are shaped like the Zagato, which is a current favorite. 

There is no official announcement from Aston Martin or Zagato on release dates, but expectation sets it at the end of the year. At the end of 2020, buyers will start getting their DBS GT Zagatos, a year after their DB4 GT Zagato cars are delivered. The pricing on each of the 19 pairs of cars is $7.93 million before taxes. Like most continuation models, the DB4 GT Zagato will be a track-only car. The Continuation model will be built at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, the original home to the DB4, but the DBS FT Zagato will be produced at the headquarters in Gaydon.
