Italian design house Zagato’s style of minimalism is evident in their take on the 1986 V8, considered to be a modern interpretation of the DB 4 Zagato. Announced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show, the reprisal of the two company’s co-operation stimulated a sense of nostalgia for the incredible DB 4 Zagato. Like its predecessor the Aston Martin V8 Zagato became one of the fastest vehicles of its time, due to a reduction of the wheelbase, removal of the rear seats and the aerodynamic Zagato aluminum body. As just 52 Coupes were manufactured, these vehicles continue to rise as an outstanding investment opportunity.
A 430bhp V8 engine powered the Zagato, with twin-choke carburettors. Performance from this engine was truly remarkable; the top speed of 185.8mph was reportedly achieved by French Magazine ‘Power Auto’ whilst the Police had lunch!
Finished in Magnificent Raven Black with Black Hide interior and Black Wilton carpets, and kept as part of an important private collection since 2008, our car has been fastidiously maintained, correctly stored and sparingly used. The vehicle has extensive documentation and prior MOT certificates record the mileage advancing slowly to the present figure of just 15,500 miles. Owned personally by Daniel Donovan previously, the car has always been well known to us since new.
