At RM Sotheby’s impending Monterey auction in August, the one-off 2013 Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial by Zagato is set to be sold.
The bespoke DB9 Spyder Centennial by Zagato was created specifically for American car collector Peter Read and joins his DBS Coupe Centennial also created by Zagato. Before being turned over to Zagato, the DB9 drop-top in question was a 2013 U.S. spec model.
When Zagato got its hands on the car at the design house’s Italian facilities, the comprehensive changes were created in the preceding 12 months. Since being produced, the Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial by Zagato has covered a mere 3700 km and has been serviced twice at an Aston Martin dealership. Because it is a 2013 model, its factory Aston Martin warranty is valid until March next year.
Beneath the skin, the car features the same 5.9-litre V12 engine as the ‘regular’ DB9 Volante meaning it pumps out an equal 510 hp. The engine is then mated to a six-speed ‘Touchtronic’ automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. Elsewhere, carbon ceramic brakes are featured at all four corners.
