Zagato has announced plans to build two bespoke Aston Martins to celebrate the latter company's 100th anniversary.

First up, the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial is described as an "exotic cross of Aston Martin DNA with Italian flair and Milanese inspiration." It features a stylish front fascia with a prominent grille and retro headlights. There's also a double bubble roof, a distinctive rear end and a unique greenhouse. The one-off model will be delivered to an unnamed "young and prestigious Japanese entrepreneur."

The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial, on the other hand, was built for American car collector Peter Read who has previously purchased a DB7 Zagato. The car's styling mimics the aforementioned coupe but eschews the hardtop for a conventional canvas roof. According to Read, “The DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial perfectly merges Aston Martin and Zagato’s DNA by combining the elegance of design, typical of Zagato, with the soul, power and prestige of Aston Martin, all developed over the last 100 years. This car personifies the timelessness of the Aston Martin/Zagato marquee.”
