Ultra-Rare Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato Looks Slick In Up-Close Video
Regarding ultra-rare cars, the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato should be part of the list. The British automaker will only make 19 of the DBS Superleggera spinoffs, and will only sell them to those who will also purchase the DB4 GT Zagato continuation as part of the DBZ Centenary Collection. Sounds and exclusive, not to mention, very expensive as the pair will return the wealthy buyer £6 million or around $7.8 million at current exchange rates.
One of the 19 samples (one of two in a right-hand drive configuration) has been spotted on a London sidewalk. TheTFJJ on Youtube.
The DBS GT Zagato is seen wearing a blue color called Tourmaline Blue, a far cry from the red and gold paintwork of the launch vehicle from last year. From the video, you can clearly see the deviation from the regular DBS Superleggera, including the intricate details of the grille design. You should also note that most, if not all, of the exterior trim is made of carbon fiber, including the roof that extends to the rear, eliminating the need for a windshield.

Unlike the DBS Superleggera, the twin-turbo 5.2 liter V12 engine of the DBS GT Zagato produces more power with 760 horsepower (567 kilowatts).
Last year, the DBS GT Zagato was spotted embellishing the Nurburgring in blue, sparking speculation that Aston Martin will extend production of the rare supercar. The automaker hasn’t announced anything in regards to the speculation as of this writing.
