There’s a new lust worthy supercar from famed British automaker Aston Martin. Revealed at the newly-formed Audrain’s Newport Concours, Aston Martin’s new DBS GT Zagato is destined to become a future collectible. Packing 760 horsepower from its 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12, the DBS GT is part of a package deal called the DBZ Centenary Collection. Priced at $7.3-million for the pair, you get not only the DBS GT Zagato, but also the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. And you can’t have one without the other.
Shown in Supernova Red – a paint colour exclusively reserved for the DBS GT Zagato ‘Centenary Specification’, the DBS Zagato debuts the world’s first automotive application of configurable carbon and metal 3D-printed finishes. A central ‘saddle’ design features a unique parametric, inter-locking form, available in a range of three materials and finishes. This includes the choice of printed Carbon, Aluminium, or – as part of the Centenary Specification – Gold PVD (physical vapour deposition). The latter requires almost 100 hours of print time with additional polishing and post-processing by skilled craftsmen to achieve a perfect lustrous finish. This represents the pinnacle of traditional Aston Martin material craft, combined with pioneering technological innovation.
Each of the 19 DBS GT Zagatos sit alongside the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation in the DBZ Centenary Collection: the latest Continuation sports car to be created by Aston Martin and hand built at the brand’s global centre of heritage excellence, Aston Martin Works.
