1986-1989 ASTON MARTIN V8 Zagato specifications


Looking to reignite a successful past relationship, Aston asked Italian coachbuilder Zagato to think up an exotic body which could be fitted to a lightened, shortened chassis. But the result divided opinion; gone were the luscious curves of Zagato’s Aston revamps of the 1960s and in their place were brutal straight lines and angled edges, with an extensive use of flush-fitting glass. Critics found it hard to get over the resemblance to contemporary Japanese sports coupés but, with only 83 ever built, they are surprisingly valuable today.
