V12 Zagato

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato was released in 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of the iconic Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. Imagined by our world leading design team and hand built by expert craftsmen, V12 Zagato finalised a limited production run in 2012.

Looking to the Future with a nod to the past

Unveiled in May 2011 as a 'natural successor' to the Zagato Aston Martins of the past, V12 Zagato was developed using a combination of the latest computer-aided modelling techniques and the time-honoured method of hand-sculpted clay maquettes to combine traditional styling cues from Aston Martin and Zagato into one cohesive shape.

Time Honoured Design Cues

Sharing its mechanical components with the V12 Vantage, the new Zagato was clad in a hand-crafted aluminium and carbon skin featuring elements seen on previous cars from the Milanese carrozzeria linke the 'double-buble' roof and short body overhangs.

Born on the Track

Unveiled at the prestigiouos Villa d'Este Concours in May 2011, the V12 Zagato was awarded the Concorso d'Eleganza trophy, and then proved its sporting credentials at the Nurburgring, where two endurance racing version finished fifth and sixth overall in the annual 24 Hour race on the challenging German circuit.
