Your Ridiculously Awesome Aston Martin DB4 Zagato Wallpaper Is Here

All of the prettiest Aston Martins were designed by Italians. The DB4, DB5, and DB6 were famously styled by Carrozzeria Touring. But Touring isn't the only Italian coachbuilder to have a long history with Aston. The other is Zagato, and its creations are breathtaking.

The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato wasn't just a standard coachbuild for Zagato, however. The car was lightened and shortened, and the engine was made more powerful. Sure, it's 0-60 time of 6.1 seconds may not sound like much today, but back in the early 1960s that was plenty quick.

Only 20 were made, which is a damn shame for such a gorgeous Italian and British composition.
