Previously announcing the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation model in celebration of the car’s 100th anniversary, Aston Martin has finally unveiled the other half of the two-car package: the DBS GT Zagato.

Drawing inspiration from the DBS Superleggera as well as its Vanquish Zagato predecessor, the new model retains many of the classic features such as its rocket booster taillights, larger rear fenders, and the iconic oversized front grille, constructed from 108 individual diamond-shaped carbon fiber pieces that channel air into the engine for cooling. Unlike the other models, however, the DBS GT Zagato boasts a roof constructed from a single piece of carbon fiber, extending down to the rear so there’s no back window. Instead, a rear view is provided via a camera and display unit inside the car.

Spec-wise, the new edition carries under its roof a monster 5.2L V12 engine, giving it 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, a huge jump from its predecessor, which only carried 576 horsepower. Other specs of the car have yet to be released, so stay tuned for more information as Aston Martin begins production in 2020.

For avid car collectors, the new Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato will be sold in a pair alongside the heritage continuation model DB4 GT Zagato for a grand price of $7.9 million USD. Head over to the British car manufacturer’s site to learn more now.
