Talking about Zagato is synonymous with Italian craftsmanship and exclusivity, associated mainly with the British manufacturer Aston Martin and the best proof of this we have with the recent creations that we all know as DB4 GT Continuation and Vantage V12 Heritage Twins. However, the famous Italian bodybuilder has just announced his new solo project, that is, a Gran Turismo that brings back the Iso Rivolta brand.
Zagato Elegance with Corvette Heart
This is the Zagato IsoRivolta GTZ, a car whose design is inspired by the Iso Grifo A3 / C of the 60s that became famous for its victories in its category at Le Mans 64 and 65 and that will re-blend Italian design with the American muscle.
And it is that under the hood of this elegant car with a “neo-classic” look, a 6.2-liter V8 LT4 supercharged engine from Chevrolet like that of the Corvette will be hidden and that finally has a total of 660 CV of power and 881 Nm of maximum torque.
To achieve these improved figures, the engine will have a large volumetric compressor to increase its performance and enable a 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 315 km / h.
All this American strength is fused with an elegant Italian style inspired by the classic Iso Rivolta models, but providing the exclusive Zagato style, resulting in a body with curved lines, marked hips, and circular light groups. In addition, it will have
A very limited production GT
These new images from Zagato show us the first GTZ delivered, in a beautiful Monza Green color, of the total of 19 exclusive units that will be produced. Nine of them already have an owner, so there are only 10 unallocated copies left, although, given the aesthetics and the eight-cylinder heart that it hides, it will be necessary to hurry.
Although that yes, like all work signed by Zagato, the GTZ will not be cheap and anyone who is interested will have to prepare a good sum of money to be able to take it to their garage.
Recall that the DBZ Centenary Collection, made up of Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato and DB4 GT Zagato, starts from 7 million euros while the Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage Twins also has a seven-digit figure.
