The DB7 Zagato

Based on the standard DB7 Vantage, the new Zagato used some of the styling cues of the original DB4GT Zagato to produce a stunning interpretation for the 21st century.

The extra-large front grille was a Zagato trademark, as were the long bonnet, chopped tail, curvaceous rear arches and ‘double bubble’ roofline. The body shell was hand-made in Italy from aluminium with a steel roof and used a shortened DB7 Vantage Volante chassis.

The standard 420bhp, 6.0-litre V12 remained. However, the Zagato was a full 60kg lighter than the standard car, giving it a performance advantage. This advantage was further emphasised by revised gear and differential ratios. The brakes and suspension were also uprated to give enhanced, sportier handling.

Inside, the Zagato interior was based on the standard DB7s, but the door trims were revised to suit the higher waist line, while the seats were trimmed in unique quilted leather with a Zagato ‘Z’ on the back of each.

Just 99 examples of the DB7 Zagato were built between 2002 and 2003, and they sold for around £160,000 each. They were offered in just three standard colours; Mercury Grey, Aqua Verde and Zagato Nero, while the leather interior was Dark Chocolate aniline leather.
