Initially, the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato looked little like a crazed concept from the future. Now the British supercar has arrived in its incredible final form. 

Based on the flagship DBS Superleggera, the stunning coupe is pictured with the other half of the DBZ Centenary Collection—the retro DB4 GT Zagato. And the only way to get either one is to buy them both for a cool $7.5 million.

As you can see above, the DBS has a gargantuan grille made of 108 diamond-shaped carbon fiber pieces that helps aspirate its twin-turbo V12. 

As early renderings indicated, the tail features a single carbon fiber covering that sits flush with the double bubble roof in place of a window. To see behind, all one needs to do is glance up at a camera-operated rear view mirror. Nifty, huh? 

Car and Driver notes that the rear's other features, like the carbon-fiber diffuser, exhaust tips and fluttered taillights are more typical of other Aston models such as the Vanquish Zagato

Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda provided context for the design's inspiration in a press release

“This is a car that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too. Our dynamic grille gives us an opportunity to provide the car with two very different identities."

"When parked, DBS GT Zagato will almost look like it’s resting, but with the rear of the car still appearing muscular and primed for action. Only on start-up will the car truly become alert and ready to perform, delivering both an aural and visual treat for onlookers”.

You'll be able to judge for yourself when the first DBZ Centenary Collections are delivered in 2020.
