aston martin unveils renderings of the DBZ GT zagato hypercar

aston martin has just revealed prototype images for its DBZ centenary collection – a celebration of nearly six decades of the intimate partnership between the british car manufacturer and italian design house, zagato. priced at $11 million, the 2-for-1 deal includes a restyled DBS superleggera designed by zagato and a new, track-only DB4 GT zagato continuation.

taking aston martin’s acclaimed DBS superleggera as its starting point, the DBS GT zagato echoes the voluptuous shapes that previously dressed the original DB4 GT zagato. the iconic double-bubble roof remains, stretching the full length of the canopy, creating a clean and sculptural form that flows from the top of the front windscreen to the car’s rearmost tip. this visual language continues in the car’s bonnet, reminiscent of the shape and form seen on original aston martin zagato designs.

the aston martin DB4 GT zagato continuation will be limited to nineteen modern replicas of the original. hand-finished aluminum bodies will be created from 3D digital scans of the original car, while a 3.8-liter straight-six engine will be hooked up to a four-speed manual transmission. it wont be road-legal but the DBS superleggera will make up for that. the fully road legal model has a 5.2 litre, twin-turbo V12 engine capable of 533kW of power and 900Nm of torque and along with its contemporary design.

  • Oooops! I guess the MAZDA Vision Coupe getting ‘Concept of the Year’ at Geneva with graceful similarities makes this look a bit awkward.
