The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato has been revealed in the flesh at the Newport Concours in Rhode Island, USA.

Under the bonnet the DBS GT Zagato has a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 cranking out 567kW of power, which is a significant step up from the 533kW available in the DBS Superleggera.

As we've seen in early computer-generated images, the DBS GT Zagato has a unique body with Zagato's signature double-bubble roof, an arresting set of tail-lights, and a front grille with active shutters.

The car on display in Rhode Island is finished in Supernova Red paint, and has a glossy carbon-fibre roof and rear diffuser, as well as black and gold 21-inch wheels.

There's gold anodoised side strakes and centre lock wheel nuts, and the front and rear Aston Martin wing badges are crafted from 18-carat solid gold.

The interior is fitted with a selection of 3D-printed elements with an interlocking parametric design. These parts, used for the climate control knobs, instrument binnacle and central tunnel saddle can be made from carbon, aluminium or metal, which is then vacuum-coated in gold.

The DBS GT Zagato is the modern half of the DBZ Centenary Collection, with the other half being the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, a track-only recreation of the original car with a few updates to the drivetrain and production processes.

Just 19 copies of each car will be built, and they can only be bought as a pair. Even though pricing starts from £6 million ($10.9 million) plus taxes, all 19 are already spoken for.
