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.
A Nod to the Past
Sharing its mechanical components with 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 such as the 'double-buble' roof and short body overhangs.
Born on the Track
Unveiled at the prestigiouos Villa d'Este Concours in May 2011, 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.
