The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato has been promised for some time. Aside from the gloss finish carbon fibre roof and rear diffuser, the most attention-grabbing detail on the auto are the Aston Martin badges made up of solid 18-carat gold. The British automaker and 100-year-old Italian coachbuilder and design house unveiled the second part of their most recent partnership-the DBS GT Zagato.

Each set from the DBZ Centennial Collection will cost £6million (about $7.4 million) plus taxes. Of course, the DBS GT Zagato isn't an ordinary supercar purchase.

Aston Martin said the vehicle features the first automotive application of "configurable carbon and metal 3D printed finishes", and also confirmed that the 19 DBZ Centenary Collection versions of the DBS GT Zagato will come with twin-turbo V12 engines rated at 760 horsepower.

Leung Wing-ngan, better known by her stage name Celine Ma Tai-lo, was one of the people hurt in Hong Kong on Sunday. Mo called it a sham because only Lam has the power to repeal the mask ban under the emergency law.

Under the bonnet the DBS GT Zagato has a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 cranking out 567kW of power, which is a significant step up from the 533kW available in the DBS Superleggera. This means that the DBS GT Zagato gets 35 hp more than the standard Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Performance figures have not been disclosed. Got the coupe bright red exterior color, decor, real gold, "dynamic" grille and full carbon roof. There's the Caithness Spicy Red leather upholstery, a Zagato "Z" seat quilting and satin-twill exposed carbon fibre on both the paddle shifts and steering wheel. Every single one will also see the first application in the automotive world of "configurable carbon and metal 3D-printed interior finishes".

A "saddle" design in the middle can be had in three finishes - printed carbon, aluminium, or Gold PVD (physical vapour deposition; as part of the Centenary Specification). What's more, the connoisseurs who'll own these limited-run units can also personalize their models through Aston's Q division. No two cars will be the same.

Just 19 copies of each auto will be built, and they can only be bought as a pair.
