Aston Martin releases the first detailed renderings of the new DBS GT Zagato; the second half of the remarkable DBZ Centenary Collection.
With the upcoming Centenary celebrations for world-renowned Italian design house Zagato, Aston Martin has released the first detailed renderings of the new DBS GT Zagato
The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato is part of the DBZ Centenary Collection project, that fuses icons of the past to create classics of the future Created to celebrate the centenary of the legendary Zagato signature, the DBZ Centenary Collection is a unique project that pays tribute to an icon of the past and creates a classic of the future.
This unique collaboration extends a remarkable creative partnership spanning almost 60 years.
One that has consistently generated bold and breathtakingly exciting designs, the latest of which being the DBS GT Zagato.
Taking Aston Martin's most potent series production car - the acclaimed DBS Superleggera - as its starting point, the DBS GT Zagato embodies the next evolution in Aston Martin Zagato design language. Inspired by the voluptuous shapes that previously dressed the original DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagatos designers have worked hard to conjure a similarly evocative design language.
A key design feature remains the iconic double-bubble roof. Stretching the full length of the canopy, this fresh interpretation delivers a clean and sculptural form that flows from the top of the front windscreen to the car's rearmost tip, discarding the traditional rear windscreen in favour of a purer roofline. These flowing curves are complemented by the model's wide wraparound windscreen, removing any hard lines above the car's shoulder line.
Muscular rear haunches deliver powerful and purposeful definition to the car's side profile, while a unique wheel design, head lamps and a striking front grille - a key feature for all Aston Martin Zagato designs - continue to deliver a modern twist on the DB4 GT Zagato's classic form.
