Aston Martin (LON:AML and OTCMKT:ARGGY) and design house Zagato have a 60 year relationship, combining forces to create some of the most stunning vehicles on the road.
As part of Zagato’s 100th anni, Aston Martin will offer to its VIP clients 19 examples of the new DBS GT Zagato, and the luxury Supercar maker is set ready to show off its production-ready shape and offer up some more information about what to expect going froward.
Tuesday, Aston Martin unveiled pictures that show the production form of the DBS GT Zagato alongside its ‘new’ old-school predecessor, the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation.
Starting with a DBS Superleggera, the body picks up some new styling, including a full carbon roof that eliminates the rear glass, stunning taillights, new flourishes on the sides and a curvaceous front end.
To accommodate the roof, Aston Martin created a camera-based rearview mirror that still allows the driver to see behind the vehicle without any rear windshield. Consider it like those mass-market mirrors that let you swap between normal and camera-based viewing, only the former is impossible because there no rear glass in this car.
Now, look at The Living Grille.
It looks intricate and it is comprised of 108 pieces of diamond-shaped carbon fiber. When the car is off, the grille looks sealed up with a flush appearance, start the car, those pieces “come to life,”physically opening up to provide the car’s V12 engine with fresh air.
At a cost of roughly $8-M for the living grill model, the price includes a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation model, a hand-built 1960’s style coupe.
Note: Aston Martin is a sponsor of Red Bull Racing’s F1 Team.
