Footnote:
Aston Martin renewed its fruitful relationship with the renowned Italian styling house of Zagato, most famously begun with the DB4GT Zagato of the 1960s, after a meeting between Elio Zagato's son Andrea and Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2001. The result was a stylish coupé, based on the DB7 V12 Vantage supercar, recalling the sublime looks of the original DB4GT Zagato. So favourable was the DB7 Zagato's reception that it was decided to produce an open car in similar vein: the DB AR1.
Designed with the California weather in mind - and a Roadster in the proper tradition with no hood and space for just two
