Last September, Aston Martin announced it would release something called the ‘DBZ Centenary Collection.’ It comprises two cars you can only buy as a pair: a DB4 GT Zagato
The DB4 is something of a known quantity—it’ll be a faithful recreation of perhaps Aston’s prettiest and most sought-after model, with thin-gauge aluminum panels and a straight-six engine sending 380hp to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual gearbox. Set to be built at the same Newport Pagnell plant that produced the originals, it will not be road-legal. Presumably because of newfangled safety regulations. Boo.
The DBS will be, though. The British carmaker has just released some new sketches of what it’s gonna look like, and we very much approve. The double-bubble roof is a big part of the design—it stretches all the way to the back of the car for a nice, clean line that also sacrifices the entire rear window. The hood has a double-bubble theme too, and the windshield is a wraparound item that “removes any hard lines above the car’s shoulder line.” The wheels, headlamps, and grille will all be unique designs.
Just 19 sets will be available, with deliveries of the DB4 starting at the end of 2019, and the DBS a year later. Has Aston earned your £6 million?
