Zagato and Aston Martin have a long history of working together to produce very special limited editions of AML cars, from the beautiful DB4 Zagato to the recent V12 Zagato. So it’s entirely appropriate – as this is Aston Martin’s Centenary year – that Zagato produce an Aston Martin Special Edition to mark the event.
In fact, they’ve gone one better by producing two special Astons for the centenary – the Aston Martin DBS Coupe Centennial and the Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial.
The DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial comes complete with the de rigeur double bubble Zagato roof and Zagato say they have aimed to give the DBS a sporting style with a Mediterranean luxury GT feel, with a new smooth tail section and an interior influenced by Ennio Capasa.

The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial was built to commemorate Aston centenary but was also inspired by the successful DB7 Zagato froma decade ago.
Zagato say that the DB9 Spyder Centennial perfectly merges the DNA of Aston and Zagato to combine the elegance of design of Zagato with the power and prestige of Aston Martin. And it does look pretty good.
But if all this talk of special Zagato Aston Martins has seen you reaching for your cheque book, forget it.
Both the DBS Zagato and the DB9 Spyder are one-offs, the DBS built for a young Japanese entrepreneur and the DB9 Spyder for well known car collector Peter Read.
