DBSZ Concept

by AMD Heights Pty Ltd (1968/2007)

The DB4 Zagato is the most revered AM of all time. Quite a number of replicas have been made recently to appeal to wealthy enthusiasts unable to stretch to the stratospheric price of one of the 19 original cars. But the DBSZ is not a replica, it represents the union of the lines of the Zagato with the platform of the later, improved DBS.

Generally speaking, the dimensions of the DBZ are extremely close to those of the original. Although the track is wider than the DB4, by using standard DBS wheel offsets the actual width of the DBSZ concept is less than 5 centimetres greater than most of the originals. Height and length remain almost identical and at a weight of 1420kg, it falls between standard DB4 and DB5 models on the scales.

With the wider track and DeDion rear suspension straight from the DBS, the DBSZ concept’s handling characteristics are improved over the original. Structurally the suspension points on the front and rear subframes are unchanged but sill sections are re-profiled to suit the evocative bodywork’s slimmer profile. The steel superstructure is then clothed in alloy panelling in the traditional manner.

The DBSZ concept is powered by an uprated version of the 4-litre 6 cylinder Aston Martin Vantage engine with DB4 GT specification pistons and camshafts and coupled to a 5-speed synchromesh manual gearbox. A choice of either automatic or 5-speed manual transmissions can be offered. Other standard features include power disc brakes, steering and windows. Optional items comprise Borrani wire wheels, air conditioning and seats tailored to individual requirements.

But what is really exciting AM enthusiasts is that AMD can build you a DBSZ on a DBSV8 or similar V8 platform. Together with an engine uprated to X-park or beyond, the DBSZ V8 would be a genuine supercar with classical coachwork.

The DBSZ is built in Australia by AMD and is available strictly to order through Brooklands Classic Cars.
