Only 19 examples are being built.
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is one of the best grand tourers on the market right now. It's fast when you want to push it hard on the track, comfortable to drive on long distances, and elegant to admire on your driveway. But Zagato has made it even better.
Last year, the Italian styling house unveiled the stunning Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato. Based on the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the DBS GT Zagato is limited to just 19 units - and you can only buy it with the track-only DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. Together, the two bespoke beauties form the $8-million DBZ Centenary Collection to celebrate Zagato's 100th anniversary.
With production so limited, the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato will be a very rare sight on the road, but an eagle-eyed enthusiast recently spotted one being put through its paces at the Nurburgring.
While we've only seen the DBS GT Zagato finished in an exclusive Supernova Red finish and gold wheels in photos, this example has a more understated blue exterior. That sublime sound you're hearing is the DBS GT Zagato's 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 760 horsepower - that's 45 more ponies than the standard DBS Superleggera, which makes it Aston Martin's most powerful road car to date.
Hammering around the Green Hell, the DBS GT Zagato looks composed and magnificent on the move. Aston Martin could be doing some final track testing evaluations to ensure the DBS GT Zagato is finetuned and ready for customer deliveries.
To help the GT Zagato stand out from its standard sibling, the limited-production grand tourer features a gloss finish carbon-fiber roof and rear diffuser, a unique active grille with 108 carbon diamond-shaped pieces, gold side strakes and center-lock wheel nuts.
Customer deliveries for the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato are due to start in Q4 2020. Chances are it will be a long time before we see this gorgeous grand tourer on the move again.
