About the Aston Martin V8 Zagato
The Aston Martin V8 Zagato was first seen at the 1986 Geneva Motor Show, showcasing Zagato’s modern take of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato of the 1960s.
Based on an Aston Martin V8, the all-alloy 430bhp Coupe was an instant hit, with orders being taken before the design had been finalised.
Aston Martin built 52 coupes and 37 convertibles between 1986 and 1990, with this being 1 of the 51.
