Zagato press release: Zagato Atelier pays tribute to Aston Martin's 100th Anniversary with the announcement of two very special projects: the DBS Coupé Centennial Zagato, delivered to a young and prestigious Japanese entrepreneur and the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial, conceived for the well known American car collector Peter Read.
DBS COUPÉ ZAGATO CENTENNIAL
The Aston Martin DBS Coupé Centennial Zagato is an exotic cross of Aston Martin DNA with Italian flair and Milanese inspiration, sporting a 'double bubble' roof design, reminiscent of Zagato cars from the 1950s. Norihiko Harada, Zagato's Chief Designer explains: "Redesigning the DBS was a difficult job. The DBS is already one of the most beautiful modern sports cars around. Our challenge was to bring sporty styling together with a more Mediterranean luxury GT feel, all with typical Zagato quality."
A project supported by Ennio Capasa, Creative Director of CoSTUME NATIONAL, whose creative influence is visible throughout the interior. The beauty of this car is due to a amalgamation of sportiness and elegance. The smooth tail section gives it a great presence and the final result is unveiled today: a highly personalised and unique thoroughbred Aston Martin DBS Coupé Centennial Zagato, brimming with soul and style in the great tradition of Aston Martin Zagato's.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
