dimension to the Aston Martin driving experience.

distinctive radiator grille and accentuating rear wheel arches,
while the carefully detailed features such as the reverse/fog light
combination provide graphic evidence of intricate hand
craftsmanship and quality that has become an Aston Martin
The car is powered by an up-rated 'GT' version of the V12, with
power up to 435 bhp and torque to 410 lb ft. The active sports
exhaust system with rear muffler by-pass valves - as used on the
V12 Vanquish - provide the DB7 Zagato with a very distinctive
exhaust note. The DB7 Zagato is also fitted with the DB7 GT
quick-shift gear lever and special multi-spoke 19" alloy wheels
with revised offset to give a wider track (8x19" front, 9�x19"
rear), equipped with 245/35 ZR19 front and 265/30 rear low profile
tires. Braking is supplied through Brembo discs as well as an
up-rated brake booster unit as used on the V12 Vanquish for a
firmer and more consistent pedal feel.
