The DBS GT Zagato celebrates 100 years of the Italian automotive design house, which has built some of the sexiest cars of all time (see this Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato station wagon).  

The British luxury car manufacturer is only making 19 examples Each purchase includes a "Continuation Model" of the original DB4 GT Zagato. 

Though they are completely distinct rides, there is a common thread between the two designs.

Per Aston Martin

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 favor of a purer roofline.

The double-bubble theme continues frontwards across the car’s bonnet, reminiscent of the shape and form seen on original Aston Martin Zagato designs. These flowing curves are complemented by the model’s wide wrap-around 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, headlamps 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.

As for powertrain, the DBS GT Zagato is expected to run the twin-turbocharged, 5.2-liter V12 that sends the DBS Superleggera to 60 mph in less than 3.4 seconds with the power of 715 horses.
