These three ‘ugly’ Zagato models together cost 1.8 million euros

The designs of the Italian design house Zagato evoke only two types of reactions: you either love them or you hate them. We fall into the latter category, so we write the word “ugly” in the headline in parentheses. However, only the Aston Martin DB7 Zagato and Ferrari GTZ Nibbio make us greedy. Of the Bentley Continental GTZ especially a bit nauseous.

Bentley Continental GTZ (2007)

To start with the Bentley. Zagato built no more than nine. This dates from 2007 and started life as a ‘regular’ Bentley Continental GT Speed, with a 608 hp strong 6.0-liter W12 with two turbos. The conversion to a Zagato was only done five years later, when the second and current owner had no less than 415,000 euros left for the major operation. Is the result beautiful? Meh! Gone are the elegant Continental GT line, replaced by a plump rear (not to say: a fat ass), a double bubble roof and rear spoiler, and a much too large Bentley grille. If you do not share our opinion and you still find the Continental GTZ attractive, you can bid on it next week. Auction house RM Sotheby’s thinks so he will yield a maximum of 612,000 euros.

Aston Martin DB7 Zagato (2003)

Aston Martin and Zagato have a long history. One of the most beautiful cars of all time (according to enthusiasts) is the DB4 GT Zagato, of which only 25 were built in the early 1960s. The DB7 Zagato from 2003 is less rare, with an edition of 99 pieces. The copy that goes under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s, has only driven 16,000 kilometers in almost twenty years. Your wallet must be about 326,000 euros deep, if you want to have a chance at the highest bid. There is also an open version of the DB7 Zagato. The Aston Martin DB AR1 was intended for the sunny states of America and therefore has no roof at all. Behind the gaping grille is the same 441 hp strong V12 as in the DB7 Zagato.

Ferrari GTZ Nibbio (2008)

If you thought the Bentley Continental GTZ was expensive to build, you haven’t seen this Ferrari GTZ Nibbio yet. It started life as a Ferrari red 599 GTB and was only sent to Zagato in 2015 by the current owner, where the man left 750,000 euros for a rebuild. That went so far that it took the customer and Zagato six months to develop the Liquid Black color of this Ferrari. If you look closely at the GTZ Nibbio (for 918,000 euros it’s yours), you can see many elements from the fifties: the oval Ferrari grille, the so-called pontoons next to it and of course – because that is the trademark of Zagato – the double bubble roof, which continues into the rear window.
