The DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial is being characterized as an "exotic cross of Aston Martin DNA with Italian flair and Milanese inspiration." It has a double bubble roof and a rather peculiar front fascia with retro headlights and a prominent grille.

While Murcielago had a fabric roof, the Aventador has an carbon fiber roof, which weights 6kg and can be removed by hand in a few seconds.
Because of the new roof, the car’s rear pillars had to be redesigned to provide additional strength when driving without the roof. These also provide extra ventilation to the power unit and offer more rollover protection.
After MP4-12C Spider has been officialy revealed, there are now new photos of this 458 spider rival.
It is powered by twinturbocharged V8 with 625 hp, they added extra 25 hp in the 2013 resytling programe. The roof mechanism takes 17 seconds to fully retracts and it uses one hydraulic pump. Roof can be folded within the speed of 30 km/h. The mechanism adds extra 50kg to to MP4-12C weight of 1376 kg. For comparison, the Ferrari 458 Spider weights 1430 kg. Engineers added diffrent exhaust system to it, which also adds 2 kg to the vehicles overall weight.
