Bentley Continental GTZ leaks before Geneva debut
Zagato is already a legend in the Italian auto history: starting with the Alfa Romeo racing from the 30s, to the Ferrari GTZ and Aston Martin DB4 GT from the 50s; and then to the Osca 1.600 Coupé GT and Lancia Flaminia Sport of the 60s, and to the recent Alfa Romeo RZ ed RZ, Aston Martin DB7, Ferrari 575 and Maserati GS, the concept of "beauty" found in the Zagato models is a way of life.
The Bentley GTZ Zagato is a neo-classical, in the same way with recent presentations at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa D ’Este: Ferrari 575GTZ, in 2006, and of Maserati Zagato GS in 2007.
The GTZ features a hand-shaped aluminium body with pronounced character lines, flared wheel arches and a revised rear end with new taillights. The car also gets new colors for both the exterior and cabin, which has been modified with more sumptuous leather and a new center console.
The GTZ is powered by a force-fed W12 engine that delivers 600 hp and a peak torque of 553ft-lbs.
