Aston Martin are currently celebrating a very big milestone in the form of their 100th anniversary. We have been spoilt with centenary events, special one-off cars as well as the most powerful Vantage ever. Zagato have had a long standing relationship with the British brand and so with the help of two enthusiastic, and rather wealthy, clients they are producing two one-off cars.
This is the Aston Martin Continental, a Zagato designed and build Coupe and Spyder. The Continental Coupe is based upon the Aston Martin DBS which means it packs 510BHP via a 5.9 litre V12. Zagato’s signature double-bubble roof design also features on this car. The Spyder is built on top of a DB9 volante and whilst does not feature the Coupe’s characteristic roof, the long bonnet and proud grill still makes it look like a serious grand tourer.
No official word has been given on the cost of these machines, but the employment of such a coach builder as Zagato does not come cheap.
