Aston Martin is planning a total of 19 pairs consisting of a D B4 GT Zagato Continuation, a replica of the historic model from the early 1960s, and a DBS GT Zagato. The DB4 without road approval comes with 395 hp from a 4.7-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with an enlarged displacement, which is coupled with a manual four-speed gearbox. The model is handcrafted at Aston Martin's Heritage Division in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. The body is made from 1.2 millimeter thick aluminum sheets that stretch over a lightweight lattice frame. Each of the 19 DB4 models is created with a mixture of traditional craftsmanship and modern design options. The construction requires around 4,500 working hours.
The first model is painted in 'Rosso Maja' red - based on one of the original paint colors. In the interior, upgrade carbon seat shells with black leather. A black carpet has been laid for this. The driver reaches into a narrow wooden steering wheel with three spokes and looks at classic round instruments with chrome rims. An FIA roll bar underlines that the DB4 belongs on the racetrack.
DBS GT Zagato based on DBS Superleggera
The DBS GT Zagato uses a Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Here, too, the British are still silent about the drive, the original unit should be usedcome. Accordingly, the 725 PS strong and 5.2 liter twin-turbo V12 is installed under the Zagato body, which catapults the eccentric to 100 km /h in 3.4 seconds and allows 340 km /h top speed.
How The double-bubble roof is a central styling element of all Zagato models, including the new-old double. The grille and headlights as well as the completely redesigned rear also received the Zagato touch. Thus, 108 diamond-shaped carbon elements are housed in the grill. The sideline is adorned with a gold clip that extends over the door to the sill. The new light alloy wheels absorb the gold in their spokes. The eye-catcher at the rear is the light bar made of carbon, which houses the round lamp with protruding LED bars. In addition, there is a powerful diffuser with double-flow exhaust tailpipes. The highlight, however, is the carbon roof that extends far down to the rear. There is no rear window, a camera-supported interior mirror is installed for a view to the rear.
Not complete until 2020
Models will be built at the Aston Martin plant in Gaydon, UK. The DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is coming to customers with immediate effect, and one year later the British will deliver the DBS GT Zagato. The prototypes caught at the Nürburgring in May 2020 show that this is already in the final development trains.
The company gives the price at the equivalent of six million British pounds. Plus taxes, the mixed double comes to a price of 8.3 million euros.
