On top, but also instant classic. See the other half of the Aston continuous series worth $7.4 million.
While we doubt that billionaires are often affected by a two-for-one offer, we imagine some must have been tempted by what Aston Martin did earlier this year. British sports car makers announced that they will exclusively resell the latest continuation of creation, the pixel-perfect replica of the Zagato DB4 GT, along with the modern version of the Zagato Superleggera DBS. The buyer must purchase the partner, with a value equal to $7.4 million before tax.
We saw the DB4 GT Zagato shortly thereafter and found every bit as remarkable as the original. But now the company has officially launched another part of the partnership at an event in Rhode Island. This is the Aston DBS GT Zagato.
You won’t miss it in the parking lot. The first car was finished in Red Supernova, with details of open carbon fibers and gold wheels. The same style scheme is used in a cabin with bright red skin and a gold Trim level that makes us recall 1980 ‘s. Saddle in the center of the cockpit is printed 3D, and Aston says that another more simple coating is available-including the use of carbon fiber First in the print world. The company also said that the gold lining in car events came through a process known as the Physical Vapor Deposition, which puts gold on top of stainless steel.
If the factory completion is not enough, the first booked Aston Q division offers buyers DBS the opportunity to change their cars more radically, including the possibility of creating unique spare parts once to ensure you never find yourself You in the next awkward parking position to the other Zagato. There is no clue in the official release of what this is, but our imagination is already running: Do you think they will allow Ejector seats?
Although based on the regular DBS, the Zagato version has been given a comprehensive redesign with a new front and back, external Airways inserted into the door, and a modern look on the typical “Double Bubble ” Roof that originated in the early 60 year association Zagato with Aston; Which is made of carbon fiber and long enough to completely replace the rear screen. Another neat Detail is the black anodized active front gril, made of diamond-shaped elements that change to increase or decrease airflow.
Mechanical changes are simpler. Aston said that DBS GT Zagato produced 760 horsepower from the retuned version of the Superleggera V-12 5.2 liter turbocharged. That is an increase of 45 HP from ordinary cars, although the company hasn’t released performance figures.
Only 19 pairs of DBS and DB4 will be produced, with construction running a well developed continuation car. Buyers will get their DBS next year, with at least one customer choosing to paint both cars to fit. And if you haven’t written your name yet, it may not be too late; When we visited Aston Martin Works a few weeks ago, we were told that “one or two slots” might still be available. You’ll have trouble finding something more exclusive.
