Aston Martin Zagato Unleashed
The British automaker Aston Martin along with the Italian design house Zagato have finally unveiled their V12 Zagato, based on the 12 Vantage. It was created in order to celebrate 50th years since the exquisite DB4GT Zagato. This 2-seat coupe benefits from a handcrafted aluminum body, a bespoke steel roll cage and a bonded aluminum structure. It also features a very nice double-bubble roof.
To be honest, the back of the car doesn’t look so good, especially with those taillights that look just about the same as the ones on the Ferrari California. Other than that, it looks very beautiful, as it should if we take into consideration that the Vantage is one of the most beautiful cars ever made.
Anyway, the car is powered by a massive V12 6.0-liter mid-front mounted engine that generates 510 hp (517 PS / 380 kW) and 420 lb.-ft (570 Nm) of torque. This power unit is mated to a 6-speed automated manual gearbox that was mounted in the rear, where it sends all of the power.
The car will make its official debut tomorrow at the Villa D’Este Concous. On May 28th, it will participate in the 4-hour VLN race at the famous Nurburgring track. Next month it will make an appearance at the 24 hour Nurburgring endurance race.
