ASTON MARTIN ZAGATO by Stephen Archer and Simon Harries, photography by Richard Newton

A unique book about an exceptional car comprising 400 pages, measuring 290mm x 330mm and containing over 400 photographs. Published in 1998, the first book ever dedicated to the Aston Martin Zagato covering the history of Aston Martin, DB4, Zagato, the design production and subsequent racing histories of the cars. Stephen Archer researched the individual histories of each of the 20 original Zagatos and relates for each car, its specification, modification, owners, details of usage, status and condition. He discovered previously unpublished photographic and design material and explores and explains the mystery of the 20th car. Simon Harries places Zagato within the historical progression of design and coachbuilding in Italy.
