Aston celebrates 50th anniversary of 1961 DB4GT Zagato with sleek new coupe

12 May 2011

By MARTON PETTENDY

BOUTIQUE British sportscar maker Aston Martin and Italian design house Zagato have joined forces to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of their first joint-venture, the DB4 GT Zagato.

The latest Aston-Zagato collaboration has resulted in a sleek new coupe with massive rear haunches, the first teaser image of which has been revealed ahead of the concept car’s world debut at the Villa D’Este Concours on Italy’s Lake Como on May 21.

Aston says development of the as-yet-unnamed vehicle, which will make its endurance racing debut at Germany’s Nürburgring on May 28, is well underway and initial customer interest will be used to gauge whether a production version will be forthcoming in 2012.

“Now is the right time for a new Aston Martin Zagato and in combining our design intelligence I think we can create something fitting of the iconic DB4 GT Zagato that has gone before and since established itself as one of the most famous Aston Martins of all time,” said Aston Martin chief executive Dr Ulrich Bez.

“The DNA of both Aston Martin and Zagato has combined successfully to make some of the world’s most desirable collector cars in the past and in this special anniversary year of the DB4 GT Zagato it is appropriate to explore a modern collaboration.”

looks way to much like an r35 gtr. the roof line, windows, basically the middle section of the car..

Although alot of cars these days have that style of windscreen/roof/front pillars

It isn't bad but I think they missed the mark as I think most Zagato designs have lately. Not sure why they went red, possibly the worst colour in this instance. Surprisingly, as I generally don't like it, I believe they should have gone chrome for that added wow factor.
