AMG GT S vs Aston Martin Zagato

Recently seen some postings about the new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato. Powered by a naturally aspirated V12 6.0L pushing around 592hp. Understanding the AMG GT S is in the 503hp range with a twin-turbo 4.0L V8, it definitely puts it in the same general area. BUT the power isn't really my primary concern. It more so comes down to the styling and the Zagato definitely takes the cake in my opinion. Definitely something to look at if your in the market for something along the lines of these two beasts. What do you think ? Could it be something to consider ?

Ha. The rear of that Zagato is pure sex. Man is that great looking. And I thought the AMG's ass was nearly the best around. I'd still choose the front of the AMG over the Aston though. Aston doesn't have much variation in their front styling.

But honestly how can you go wrong with either.

I imaging the zagato will be twice the price, if price is a huge concern for you.

I have to admit it, the Zagato does look amazing but is that really what it's production model will look like or is it just a concept rendering?

And yea, people will only be willing to pay so much more for looks.

The last Zagato from 2013 was in the ballpark of $450k USD I think ? But I'm thinking this one is gonna be what the production will look like. But gosh darn, listen to the exhaust notes

Even if they bring it to market I don't think I could ever consider it, as long as the front end remains.
What I would like to see is something along the lines of Bond's DB10

I don't know, Bonds DB10 has way too little definition for me. Looks a bit too concept - futuristic for my preferences
