2013 Aston Martin V12 Zagato
Announced to the world in 2011, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Aston Martin and Italian coach-builder, Zagato’s historic partnership in creating the DB4GT Zagato. The V12 Zagato delivers a unique combination of race-proven handling and performance, rarity and fastidious attention to details both inside and out. It is destined to be one of the most highly coveted models in the marque’s history.
At its launch, the V12 Zagato scooped the prestigious accolade of best design of a concept car and prototype at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza and has gone on to being recognised as one of the most successful Aston Martin and Zagato collaborations.
Elegant, yet brutal, the V12 Zagato is a forward thinking Zagato which respects the past. Clothed in lightweight hand-rolled aluminium and carbon fibre body panels which involved 2,000 hours of craftsmanship for each car. The sculpted aluminium ‘double bubble’ roof and bulging haunches, both Zagato hallmarks, along with the stunning ‘Z’ pattern front grille all leave you in no doubt that this is a Zagato, while the rear wing, diffuser and splitter, all formed from carbon fibre, give the car a purposeful and menacing appearance.
The V12 Zagato is built upon the highly respected V12 Vantage platform with 510bhp / 570 NM of torque coming from the 6.0 litre V12 Engine, mated, to the delight of ‘drivers’, to a 6-speed manual gearbox. With a lighter weight, courtesy of its smaller frame and use of weight saving materials, means the V12 Zagato is as fast as it looks. It has proven its sporting credentials at the Nurburgring, where two endurance racing version (Zig Green and Zag Red) finished fifth and sixth overall in the annual 24 Hours race on the challenging German circuit.
In total, just 65 production V12 Zagato were built and many of which now form part of the most important collections, around the globe.
