Feast Your Eyes On The Stunning Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato

The DBS GT Zagato is shown alongside a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, forming the DBZ Centenary Collection that will sell for approximately $7.5 million for the pair.

Aston Martin has revealed the DBS GT Zagato in its final "on-sale" form, although we'll use that word with some caution here as only 19 of them will ever be produced.

As mentioned, the GT Zagato is based on the DBS Superleggera and since there is no mention of any mechanical modifications, we'll assume that its twin-turbo 5.2-litre V8 is in the same state of tune, which is an already plentiful 533kW at 6500rpm and 900Nm from 1800.

In addition, the full length carbon-fiber roof will make it into production, giving the DBS GT Zagato an even more muscular appearance.

The latest photos highlight the unique "dynamic" grille that dominates the car's frontal area.

At the front is a unique "dynamic" grille featuring 108-individual diamond-shaped carbon fiber pieces that remain closed when the vehicle is stationary and open when the auto roars to life, allowing the twin-turbo V12 to breathe.

"This is a auto that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too".

Aston Martin's Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman explains: "This is a vehicle that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too". This large piece of carbon fiber also means that there's also no rear window, but Aston Martin solved the issue with a camera-operated central mirror.

If you buy an Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato you'll get a wild exaggeration of Aston Martin design language with a insane active grille with 108 moving parts and a carbon fibre roof that completely replaces the rear window. Instead, DBS GT Zagato is treated to a pure and simple roofline without any compromises on practicality to the driver.

He continued: "Form and function are constantly in battle with one another, but this is a great example of where we have been able to utilise modern technologies to ensure no concession has been made on either side".

Since the Centenary Collection was announced in September past year, a number of details about the cars have surfaced. "It was important to me and our teams to deliver something as lovely as the original DB4 GT Zagato and I feel that we have achieved that with this model and I can't wait to see it in the metal".
