Neither Aston Martin nor coachbuilder Zagato are known for making particularly ugly cars. The upcoming DBS GT Zagato and DB4 GT Zagato Continuation look to keep that form running.

Aston Martin released these sketches of the pair, along with a few initial details.

The DBZ GT Zagato will be based on the DBS Superleggera, including its 530kW/900Nm 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12. It’ll get a new look, as expected, with Zagato’s traditional double-bubble roof stretching the full length of the canopy. The headlights, grille and wheels “continue to deliver a modern twist on the DB4 GT Zagato’s classic form.”

Speaking of, the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation will retain all the styling of the original, along with a straight six engine good for 284kW, a four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.

The pair make up the DBZ Centenary Collection and, in a genius marketing strategy, will be sold together for £6 million ($NZ11.4 million). Production will be limited to 19 units per model with deliveries of the DB4 GT to kick off in the fourth quarter of 2019. The DBS GT Zagato will follow in Q4 2020.
