Reporters have published test photos of the British sports coupe Aston Martin DBS in the anniversary edition of GT Zagato. The car was spotted at the Nürburgring race track.

The prototypes of the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato continue a series of high-speed tests that they undergo at the Nürburgring Nordschleife race track (Germany). The published photos show the British low-slung coupe leaving the Aston Martin development center, which is located on the famous circuit, exits the track, and then returns back.

Aston Martin originally planned to build only 19 DBS GT Zagato units, and these were to be available to people who also received the DB4 GT Zagato sequel. The whole set costs 6 million pounds.

The DBS GT Zagato features a beautiful wavy body shape. One of the most interesting design elements is the windowless rear. Instead, the double roof “flows” down to the rear deck, and the designers hide the engine in a tiny niche above the trunk.

The car in this video has mismatched wheels. At the front are discs with five pairs of spokes. At the back, the design has a more sophisticated look with Y-spoke design and dark trim. There are also sensors on the roof to collect data.

While not visible in the video, the photos above show the DBS GT Zagato has the same wild interior as the exterior. The company uses 3D printed metal to create complex mesh surfaces to create elements unlike anything else.

Like the DBS Superleggera, the GT Zagato uses a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine producing 760 hp.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a convertible Aston Martin from Mansory appeared on sale. A 2007 Aston Martin DB9 Volante convertible is up for auction on the Bring a Trailer website.
