Aston Martin and Zagato have done it again. In 2016 they revealed the Vanquish Zagato and Vanquish Zagato Volante models, which were nice. They soon completed the family by unveiling the excellent Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake, which were also nice.
Now, the pair are promising something rather delightful indeed, with the incoming DBS GT Zagato: a long, double-bubble-roofed Zagato-themed DBS Superleggera. If the first sketches are anything to go by, it’ll be quite something indeed.
It’s the latest in a long, fine, often wild line of Zagato-bodied creations from a company that has been modifying cars for 100 years.
