As a part of its 100th birthday celebrations Aston Martin recently showcased the new DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial and DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial. The cars were presented at Kensington Gardens in the largest ever gathering of Aston Martin cars with some 550 models.
More than 50,000 Aston Martin fans attended this special event.
It is being said that the Aston Martin DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial was conceived for an unnamed “young and prestigious Japanese entrepreneur” and the car featuring Zagato’s trademark ‘double bubble’ roof design.
Talking about the new car, Norihiko Harada, Zagato’s Chief Designer, said: “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 Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial has been made for American car collector Peter Read. Talking about his new ride, Peter said, “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.”
Both the one-off models are powered by DB9’s 510hp 5.9-liter V12 drivetrain engine.
