The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato Is an Even Prettier Superleggera

Just 19 will be built, and the only way you can own it is if you also buy one of Aston's DB4 GT Zagato continuation cars.

Disappointed you couldn't get an allocation for any one of Aston's trio of limited-production Vanquish Zagatos? Well, you're in luck, because the company has a new Zagato, this time based on the DBS Superleggera. The catch? You can only get it if you buy one of Aston Martin's DB4 GT Zagato continuation cars.

The car, called the DBS GT Zagato, sports a new look similar to the Vanquish models, with a massive grille, double-bubble roof, and a flat-bill rear end with vortex-like taillights. Aston's released a handful of concept sketches of the car, and it looks fantastic. Because it's based on the DBS, it'll almost assuredly get a version of that car's 715-horsepower 5.2-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.

The company will build just 19 examples of the DBS GT Zagato—one to pair with each DB4 GT Zagato continuation. The only way you can own one is if you buy the DB4, which, by the way, has an asking price of £6 million (around $7.9 million). That's an incredibly steep number for any two cars, we know, but we bet Aston will have no trouble finding 19 well-off individuals willing to pay the price. Deliveries for the DB4 continuation are expected towards the end of 2019, while the DBS GT won't reach customers until late 2020.
