Here is an absolutely special treat, courtesy of Dimmitt Automotive Group. recently, the dealership invited us out to witness the unveiling of a very special car. With just our group from duPont REGISTRY and the owner’s family, we were able to watch as they pulled the sheets back on a downright extraordinary example of the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato.
If you aren’t familiar with this car, we’ll explain as to why this model is so rare and special. Aston Martin debuted this car as part of their ‘DBZ Centenary Collection,’ which also included a DB4 GT Zagato continuation. In order to own one of these cars, you had to buy them both as a pair.
When the owner of this specific DBS GT Zagato ordered his example, he went for a truly special spec. For starters, his example is actually one of the prototypes and still dons the same grille used during testing, as opposed to the black grille found on the other examples that have been delivered.
What’s more, this is the only DBS GT Zagato to have a full, bare carbon fiber exterior. While we do appreciate a cool coat of vibrant paint here and there, the carbon fiber exterior of this Aston Martin is mesmerizing. The carbon fiber is laid flawlessly with a herringbone pattern running right down the center of the supercar and its carbon badges. Honestly, we couldn’t keep our eyes off of it. As for the interior, the owner went with a Dark Knight design that finishes off the shadowy appearance.
Power for the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato is provided by a V12 engine, which has an output of 760 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. When it roared to life on the showroom floor, we all couldn’t help but be taken aback by the fierce and deep exhaust note that was emitted. With a new engine that engineers placed in before delivery, I’m sure the owner will have a great time breaking this Aston Martin in.
While we were excited to see an Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato, we did not expect the example under the cover to be this special. It’s a true one-of-a-kind and we can’t thank Dimmitt and the owner for inviting us out their to witness the unveiling.
