    Aston Martin DB7 Zagato 2002-2003

    Aston Martin DB7 Zagato

    (from Zagato Press Release) Aston Martin DB7Z Zagato was born during a meeting between Elio’s son Andrea Zagato, and Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd., in Pebble Beach Concours of Elegance 2001. The idea was to relaunch the collaboration between the two companies.

    Four months later (January 2002), Zagato presented to Ulrich Bez and Henrich Fisker his first sketches of the car and obtained the approval during the Geneva Motorshow (March 2002).

    This represents a new chapter in the long-standing relationship between the two firms inaugurated in the Sixties with the DB4 Zagato and subsequently consolidated with the Vantage and Volante Zagato. The sleek and muscular DB7 Zagato is a return to the styling that made the DB4 Zagato a classic. From a grill that references the original, to the long hood, truncated tail, and curvaceous top crowned by the immortal Zagato “double bubble” roof, the DB7Z can only be an Aston-Zagato. The interior will mimic the DB4Z in being comfortable yet Spartan, a reflection of the DB7Z’s sporty nature and superior performance to the production DB7 Vantage.


    Body & Exterior
    • Zagato-styled exterior panels on a shortened DB7 Volante underframe
    • Aluminium bonnet and door skins, boot and front wings
    • Steel roof – incorporating the famous Zagato ‘double-bubble’ trademark
    • Composite sill covers and front and rear aprons
    • Unique rear quarter windows and rear screen
    • Rear brake lights, fog lamp, reversing light and reflectors
    • Zagato-badge on boot lid and front wings

    Suspension, Wheels & Tyres
    • Zagato-styled alloy wheels with revised offset to give wider track –
    8x18” front (unique to DB7 Zagato); 9x 18” rear (standard DB7 Vantage)
    • Uprated brakes
    • DB7 Vantage sports suspension with unique dampers

    Powertrain
    • DB7 Vantage sports differential 4.09
    • Shortened propshaft, quickshift gear lever
    • DB7 Vantage 12-cylinder, 6.0-litre engine with additional 20bhp
    • DB7 Vantage sports exhaust


    Interior
    • Unique to DB7 Zagato aniline leather trim
    • Modified door trim to match high waist line
    • New rear trim panels with luggage shelf replacing rear seats
    • Standard DB7 Vantage front seats but finished in quilted aniline leather with the Zagato ‘Z’ embossed in seat backs
    • DB7 Vantage sports switchgear

    It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

    exe, images posted in the hide-out should be at least 1024x768. If you have any high-res images please do add them, but the low quality ones should be removed. Thanks
