Aston Martin DB9 and DBS Zagato Centennial 2013

Zagato has revealed two special projects that pay tribute to Aston Martin’s 100th Anniversary: the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial and the DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial, commissioned by private collectors.

The two special projects have been announced by Zagato with a set of design sketches and renderings.

The DB9 Spyder Centennial was conceived for the well known American car collector Peter Read, while the DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial was delivered to a young and prestigious Japanese entrepreneur.


Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial

In 2001 Dr. Ulrich Bez approved a design for the DB7 Zagato, which was inspired and financed by the Zagato team, comprising of Andrea and Marella Zagato and Peter Read, a long time enthusiast and collector of Aston Martins.

Due to the success of the DB7 Zagato (all 99 units were sold at the Paris Motor Show prior to production) and with the approval and collaboration of Aston Martin, the same team designed, developed and produced a one-off DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial.

This creation pays tribute to the heritage of Aston Martin’s Centenary. As Peter Read explains, “The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial perfectly merges Aston Martin and Zagato’s DNA by combining the elegance of design, typical of Zagato, with the soul, power and prestige of Aston Martin, all developed over the last 100 years. This car personifies the timelessness of the Aston Martin/Zagato marque.”

Aston Martin DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial

The Aston Martin DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial is a defined as an “exotic cross of Aston Martin DNA with Italian flair and Milanese inspiration”, and features a ‘double bubble’ roof design, reminiscent of Zagato cars from the 1950s, and a smooth tail section.

Norihiko Harada, Zagato’s Chief Designer explains: “Redesigning the DBS was a difficult job. The DBS is already one of the most beautiful modern sports cars around. Our challenge was to bring sporty styling together with a more Mediterranean luxury GT feel, all with typical Zagato quality.”

The project was also supported by Ennio Capasa, Creative Director of CoSTUME NATIONAL, whose creative influence is visible throughout the interior.

The best of British being called blatant copy of an agricultural american muscle car by the colonials?

Big words indeed!

Surely, Budleigh Salterton will have something to say about it.

Probably all sorts of harrumphing and sputtering about with a bit of "I say!" thrown in for good measure.
