Aston Martin Files DBZ Patent: New Zagato Model Coming Soon?

Aston Martin is most known for its line of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. Most of the vehicles in its roster sport the "DB" initial, reportedly for David Brown, who previously owned the company. However, Aston Martin has recently made a move to patent a new moniker, "DBZ."

According to Carscoops, the British auto maker has taken to the European Trademark Office to patent "DBZ." Under the name, the company has stated that it can be used for "passenger cars, racing cars and car bodies." As previously noted, the "DB" is usually credited to David Brown, who was previously the owner of the company. He took hold of the brand back in 1947 £20,500 and oversaw the company as it showed success and stability. The "Z," however, is now rumored to be for Zagato - an Italian design-house that Aston Martin has worked with previously.

The publication goes on to point out that a concept was recently co-developed between the two companies, which could now be run, though just for a limited time. The new concept, which is the fifth time Aston Martin teamed up with Zagato, is called the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept.

The unit is powered by a 5.9-liter engine, which powers out at 592HP. The exteriors show a body shaped from carbon fiber and a classic side strake, which runks from the wheel arch to the door. The aesthetics inside the unit are created from carbon fiber, anodized bronze and aniline leather, unique Z quilt pattern stitching on the seat, door sections and center console, as well as a Z embossed on the headrests.

However, as Performance Drive points out, the "DBZ" patent may not mean anything for a while still. Auto Companies normally patent monikers to ensure that competition will not take it for themselves and cause confusion among the shared clientele.
