Ces nouvelles photos, du moins illustrations plutôt réalistes, nous en disent plus que ce à quoi on avait eu droit en mars. On découvre donc cette DBS GT Zagato qui se base sur l'actuelle DBS Superleggera et qui reprend les codes du carrossier Zagato. Cela passe notamment par une immense grille de calandre devant le V12 5,2 litres bi-turbo, mais aussi évidemment ce double bossage du toit. Pour en revenir au moteur, sa puissance pourrait être de 715 chevaux et 900 Nm de couple.

"La voiture ne se veut pas être seulement belle, mais également dramatique", explique Marek Reichman, en charge du design chez Aston Martin Lagonda. "Le dynamisme de la calandre nous permet de donner à la voiture deux identités très différentes. Une fois garée, la DBS GT Zagato aura presque l'air de se reposer. Mais l'arrière de la voiture semble toujours musclé et prêt pour l'action".

"Il était important pour mon équipe et moi-même de réaliser quelque chose d'aussi beau que la DB4 GT originale", continue Reichman. "J'ai l'impression que c'est ce qu'on a réussi à faire et j'ai hâte de la voir en chair et en os"

Aston Martin has delivered a further glimpse of the final production intent exterior of its upcoming DBS GT Zagato model. Paired with the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation to complete the DBZ Centenary Collection – of which only 19 will be created and are priced at £6m for the pair – these latest renders provide a fresh look at some of the model’s key design features.

Taking Aston Martin’s most potent series production car - the acclaimed DBS Superleggera - as its starting point, the DBS GT Zagato embodies the next evolution in Aston Martin Zagato design language. Inspired by the voluptuous shapes that previously dressed the original DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagatos designers have worked hard to conjure a similarly evocative design language.

An unequivocal statement of luxury, exclusivity and purity, DBS GT Zagato delivers a commanding presence whether parked or in motion. At the car’s front, a newly created and unique “dynamic” grille allows the car’s frontal area to transform its appearance. When stationary, each of the 108-individual diamond-shaped carbon fibre pieces remain flush with the car’s beautiful formed exterior. However, upon start-up DBS GT Zagato will appear to flutter into life, as each piece opens to allow the car’s twin-turbo V12 to breathe.

Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin Lagonda said, “This is a car that is not only focused around beauty, but drama too. Our dynamic grille gives us an opportunity to provide the car with two very different identities. When parked, DBS GT Zagato will almost look like it’s resting, but with the rear of the car still appearing muscular and primed for action. Only on start-up will the car truly become alert and ready to perform, delivering both an aural and visual treat for onlookers”.

While the front end will be intricately finished, Aston Martin’s design studio have utilised a camera-operated rear view central mirror, to accommodate the previously shown full length carbon fibre roof. Today’s images showcase the final design for this large, single piece of carbon fibre covering where the rear windscreen would typically be placed. Instead, DBS GT Zagato is treated to a pure and simple roofline without any compromises on practicality to the driver.

Reichman adds, “Form and function are constantly in battle with one another, but this is a great example of where we have been able to utilise modern technologies to ensure no concession has been made on either side. It was important to me and our teams to deliver something as beautiful as the original DB4 GT Zagato and I feel that we have achieved that with this model and I can’t wait to see it in the metal”.

DBS GT Zagato is set for production in 2020, joining each of the 19 DB4 GT Zagato cars set to be created at Aston Martin Works this year.
