Italian coachbuilder Zagato has created two one-off project cars that celebrate Aston Martin\'s 100th anniversary: the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial and the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial.

According to Zagato, the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial was built for an anonymous \"young and prestigious Japanese entrepreneur,\" and it sports a double-bubble roof design that\'s reminiscent of the coachbuilder\'s cars from the 1950s.

\"Redesigning the DBS was a difficult job,\" said Zagato chief designer Norihiko Harada. \"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 DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial, meanwhile, was commissioned by American car collector and Aston Martin enthusiast Peter Read, with the car\'s design supposedly being inspired by the limited-to-99-units DB7 Zagato.

\"The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial perfectly merges Aston Martin and Zagato\'s DNA by combining the elegance of design with the soul, power and prestige of Aston Martin, all developed over the last 100 years,\" shared Read. \"This car personifies the timelessness of the Aston Martin/Zagato marque.\"

Ah, to be rich and bored with money.
