Aston Martin had an overwhelming presence at last night's Motorworks Revival. Besides the production models on hand, including the new Vanquish Volante and V12 Vantage S, the British manufacturer brought a One-77 and held the live debut of the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial. This was one of two one-offs commissioned by Italian design house Zagato, in honor of Aston's year-long, hundredth birthday celebrations.

We got our first official peek at the Spyder Zagato in July, along with its sibling, the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial. The Coupe was set to go to a Japanese entrepreneur, while the model you see above was slated for Aston Martin collector Peter Read. Based off of the DB9 Volante, the Spyder Zagato ditches that car's sleek styling in favor of something, um, squarer? The results are up for debate. Have your say in the comments, and be sure to take a look at our live gallery of this one-of-a-kind Zagato.

      Nah, I don't like it. The front looks weird and the rear end looks like it came from the bad design period in the 90's.

      Like it or not, at least it's a different styling approach...something you'd recognize from 100 yards away.

      I am a far bigger fan of Aston than Cadillac - but on looks alone, that Cadillac concept beats this by so many miles that I can't even count them... I think Zagato missed with this one.

      I rather like both of them (but the coupe more). I have a feeling that they don't photograph as well as they would look in person. Zagato has always made some pretty weird cars but it's their weirdness that makes them kinda neat. FWIW, you will never mistake it for a jaguar.......

      Wow! I actually find this car extremely appealing! It screams of retro in all the right portions and design.. I would expect this coming from an italian design house, Who do I write the check to? :)

      Don't get all the hate. I think it's nicely proportioned, elegant yet muscular, with a dash of Zagato funkiness

      What an UGLY car. There is nothing nice to say about it.

      Looks like a bad kit car. Sorry Aston, your cars are usually drop dead gorgeous

      I swear the only car Zagato has ever designed that is good looking is the Alfa Romeo SZ. Everything else is just terrible in my opinion.

        OMG, you need to do some research before issuing such a blanket statement. True, Zagato has designed some love it or hate funky cars, but also some of the world's most striking and beautiful. Here's a partial list: Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato Alfa Romeo TZ1 Zagato Alfa Romeo TZ2 Zagato Alfa Romeo TZ4 Zagato Alfa Romeo 2600 Zagato Abarth Zagato 750 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Aston Martin DB7 Zagato Lancia Fulvia Zagato Lancia Hyena Spyker C12 Zagato Zagato Perana Z Zagato Raptor
