History of the Aston Martin V8 Zagato
The Aston Martin V8 Zagato model was a 1980s GT car. Between 1986 and 1990, just fifty-two coupés and thirty-seven convertibles were produced. The coupé was originally shown at the 1986 Geneva Motor Show, and orders were promptly accepted despite the fact that only a sketch of the car was shown.
The choice to manufacture the later convertible was contentious since all fifty-two coupés had already been acquired during the peak of the supercar speculation market, and owners feared that creating more vehicles would reduce the value of the coupés. Convertibles are continuously more expensive than their roofed counterparts. The V8 Zagato, as the name implies, was based on the Aston Martin V8, but with a body by the renowned coachbuilder Zagato.
The design was an angular contemporary take on the 1960s Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. The squared-off grille was especially divisive. A 430 horsepower V8 engine with double choke Weber carburettors powered the Zagato. The all-aluminium vehicle could reach a top speed of 186 mph. It was a premium automobile with a price tag of USD $156,600 at the time, but due to its scarcity and debut during the supercar price bubble of 1987 to 1990, the car was being bought and sold for £450,000 by the end of the decade.
