ABU DHABI: Wait for the super-expensive and premium-most limited edition DBS GT Zagato is half over. The British luxury marque Aston Martin has unveiled the design of the GT Zagato, which is going to be in production in 2020. 



The partnership of Aston Martin and Zagato has been building alluring nameplates for almost 70 years. However, the latest project is garnering a whole lot of attention. DBS GT Zagato is a part of the well-known project called DBZ Centenary Collection. It is a unique project that pays tribute to the “icons of past and classics of future”. DBS GT Zagato reflects the evolution of Aston Martin Zagato design language. The car will be sold alongside DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. 



Shedding lights of the DBZ Zagato Collection, Aston Martin Lagonda’s Executive Vice President and CCO, Marek Reichman said “In the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation we have one of the world’s most beautiful and instantly recognizable pieces of car design. Creating a car fit to stand alongside it was always going to be a formidable challenge, but also a great motivation. Both design teams at Aston Martin and Zagato have together risen to the task magnificently; taking the already fabulous DBS Superleggera and shaping something which retains its identity as an Aston Martin, but expresses itself as only a Zagato can. Sensational-looking and extremely rare, it is the modern incarnation of a timeless icon.”



Although the company says that the design of DBS GT Zagato is taken from the ‘standard’ DBS Superleggera, the actual case is far from being that. The anterior is dominated by a new dynamic grille. Dynamic because it changes itself with the car’s state of motion. The grille features 108 individual diamond-shaped carbon-fiber strips. The pieces remain closed when the coaster rests but opens once the vehicle starts scaling the streets and allows air intake into the twin-turbo V12 engine. Also, there is no rear windscreen and as a substitute for that, the car houses camera-operated rear-view mirror. 


 


Only 19 units of the DBS GT Zagato will go into production and the deliveries are expected to start by the last quarter of 2020. All the 19 units are already booked and the owners will be paying £6 million (AED 2,74,49,295) for the same.
