second model from DBZ Centenary Collection

Aston Martin has completely declassified the modern DBS GT Zagato supercar, which, together with the reissue of the classic DB4 GT Zagato sports car, is part of the “DBZ Centenary Collection” jubilee set prepared for the centenary of the Italian studio Zagato.

Based on the DBS Superleggera model, the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato supercar has a more exotic exterior design, while one of the main features of the two-door is an active radiator grille, consisting of 108 movable cells.

When parked, the latter completely close the front air intake and open only after starting the engine. Interestingly, in the “riding” preset, such a grid turns into a field dotted with triangles-teeth.

Plus, the “anniversary” Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato boasts an unusual roof design. Here it is a one-piece carbon fiber panel, in which there is not even a slot for the rear window. At the same time, the rear roof of the supercar has a couple of bulges, which are the hallmark of Zagato.

At one time, this design solution was invented for placement behind the seats of racing helmets, but now it is just a proprietary feature that does not have any practical use.

Among other features of the exterior of the two-door, it is worth noting a carbon fiber rear diffuser, wheels with central locking, as well as nameplates cast from 18-karat gold.

Compared to the original DBS Superleggera, the interior of the DBS GT Zagato has also undergone numerous changes. The sports car received a new front panel, another tunnel and other seats. In the manufacture of decorative elements for the interior, the British have adopted the technology of vacuum gold deposition.

It took them about 100 hours to make each such part, followed by processing and polishing. Note that instead of a salon mirror, a full-fledged display is installed in the modification salon, on which a picture from a rear-view camera is displayed. Thus, the British made up for the lack of a rear window on the supercar.

The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 borrowed from a donor model. The company boosted this unit to 771 hp. (+ 46), however, the dynamic characteristics of the coupe are not advertised.

Aston Martin and Zagato studio will release only 19 anniversary sets “DBZ Centenary Collection” at a price of 6 million pounds each (762 million rubles). Interestingly, the shipment of the reissue of the classic DB4 GT Zagato to customers has already begun, but deliveries of the DBS GT Zagato will start only at the end of two thousand and twenty.
