Zagato Makes Two Aston Martins Even More Beautiful

There's no need to feel sorry for the person who decides to buy a new Aston Martin and say, "I just wish it looked more breathtaking." But when famed coachbuilder Zagato takes a DBS and a DB9 Volante and makes them more beautiful, you quit judging.

Shown off at the Aston Martin Centenary today, Motor Authority reports the hardtop DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial was commissioned by a young Japanese businessman. Evident is a longer grille than the standard DBS, with the headlights buried in the corners below the massively long hood. It sports a bubble roof and a bit more length to make it more of a special grand tourer. And special, it is.

Those design traits, minus the roof, have been adapted to the also-gorgeous DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial for Aston Martin collector Peter Read. The transformation makes it look actually very different than the standard DB9 – except for the fact it's still a 510-horsepower V12 grand tourer. It's just now with added grand. For better touring.

These are proportions that look fantastic on this car, even if they're sorta outdated. No one out there is making a car that has a longer rear deck and tapered, chopped-of rear end like these have and that's why it's so distinctive. I love these one-offs, and I think they're a great direction for Zagato and AM.
