Italian design firm Zagato Milano has created two unique vehicles in
commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Aston Martin. Both of the cars
are one-off models headed to private buyers. One is based on the Aston Martin DBS coupe, while the other is based on the Aston Martin DB9 Volante.
The other one-off model is called the Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial,
and was commissioned by American collector Peter Read. Based on the
Aston Martin DB9 Volante, the car receives the same awkward wide-mouth
front grille, flat tail, and strong character lines as the DBS. Because
it lacks a solid roof, Zagato’s signature double bubble design is
absent, and the decklid is flat.
“The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial perfectly merges Aston Martin and
Zagato’s DNA by combining the elegance of design, typical of Zagato,
with the soul, power and prestige of Aston Martin,” chief designer
Harado said in a statement.
