Aston Martin DB7 Zagato

Aston Martin DB7 Zagato

Introduced to the world, in October, 2002, at the esteemed Paris Motor Show, Aston Martin DB7 Zagato was launched as a limited-edition car of the grand tourer class. Made perfectly by Aston Martin/Zagato, the Zagato was straight away sold out after its launch. 99 examples of the car were sold out to the eager public, though one additional model was produced and preserved for the prestigious Aston Martin museum. Just like the DB7 on which DB7 Zagato is based, Zagato had a powerful 6.0 L V12 engine and was controlled by a 6-speed manual transmission. The car was moderately fast with a top speed of 186 mph. Also like the DB7, the DB7 Zagato had a shortened wheelbase and just two seats. The feature which actually set the two cars apart from each other in terms of feature was a race program. The car’s styling was a mix of lithe and it was nicely shaped at the rear end with a forceful front and a giant shiny Aston grille.

The interior of DB7 Zagato is nicely trimmed in the premium and softest, chocolate-colored leather, which gives the interior an opulent look. The dash was kept simple and minimal and a three spoke leather wrapped steering wheel was just at the right height where it was needed for the driver. The car floor was covered with soft carpets and cooling vents were present in ample number.

The DB7 Zagato is highly suggestive of the earlier DB4 Zagato which originally started the Aston Martin-Zagato mutual relationship back in the year 1961. The two similar coupes share many features in common despite a large forty year gap. The Zagato has a much shortened wheelbase and comes with only two seats. In contrast to the later launched DB AR1, the car Zagato is firmly built on a simply shortened chassis. DB7 beyond a new body offers an improved performance; new brakes, modified suspension geometry and a totally updated interior, making it rank exclusive in all areas. The new car also shed about 133lbs off weight, which equaled the same amount taken off from the DB4 back in the sixties.

The car is nicely shaped at the rear and has an aggressive front along with a huge, glossy Aston grille. Roof has a bit of the Zagato's "double bubble" mark, which was absent in DB4 GT Zagato. It had an unusual rear-window size and shape, which the designers found difficult to make. Although one can have an Aston Martin in any color which the heart desires, three proper subtle metallic finish color were recommended for the daring DB7 Zagato including gray, green, or blue.
