Hey Josh, it’s not just you. No two of the Zagato DB4 GT’s were exactly alike.
Now that being said, I have read somewhere in the past (maybe this forum) that the specific car CMC scanned to model their release on had some differences in the grill shape, roofline and in other features that made it unique even in the limited company of the 19 cars AM/Zagato originally created. It does look a bit different, because its subject car was unique.

There’s been a lot of debate over whether or not CMC should have found a DB4GT Zagato that is more representative of the appearance of the majority of the real cars produced. The same debate occurred around their Ferrari 250 GTO, which was modeled off of a car that had survived an accident and was rebuilt outside of the factory, so the lines of its nose are a bit lower and sharper than we would normally picture when we think of the real car.

Regarding either car, to me, CMC put out a beautiful release, and I’m happy to have them both in my collection!
