The physique will doubtless be product of carbon fibre.“Nice Britain has all the time appreciated our work,” Andrea Zagato, head of Zagato and grandson of its founder, stated of the DBS GT Zagato.“Particularly, I have to say I’m honoured and really proud that Aston Martin has chosen to have fun our long-standing partnership with this distinctive DBZ Centenary Assortment.”The DBZ Centenary Assortment will probably be utterly delivered by the fourth quarter of 2020.
