Unveiled at Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival event, the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial from Aston Martin has a distinctive vintage feel that some will appreciate and others will not. Its owner, however, definitely loves the project, so the rest of us don’t even matter in this equation.
The one-of-a-kind car was created for Peter Read, a passionate collector of Aston Martin vehicles, and it plays an important part in the automotive brand’s 100th anniversary celebrations. Two one-offs were developed for the centennial: this drop-top and a coupe version, the latter being slated for a Japanese entrepreneur.
As you can see in the following photos, the Spyder is based on Aston Martin’s DB9 Volante, but it brings something back from the old days when cars were a bit less rounded and fluid in design. Would you say that the result is a winner?
