Aston Martin has revealed details and images of its first tie-up with design-house Zagato, since the two worked together for a limited run DB7 in 2002.
Based on the V12 Vantage, the new model – called the V12 Zagato – commemorates the 50th anniversary of the very first Aston-Zagato project, the DB4GT.
Dr Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin said: “The Zagato design language is a perfect complement to our design and engineering expertise. After 50 years of the two companies being associated with each other the partnership has produced some of the world’s most iconic cars.”
Dr. Bez went on to confirm “a strictly limited run of road going V12 Zagatos.” Before then, a stripped-out race-ready version of the car will compete in the Nurburgring 24 hours race.
Underneath the newly crafted aluminium body is the same 6.0-litre V12 engine from the standard car producing 510bhp and 570 Nm of torque.
Production is expected to be well under the 99 units offered of the DB7 Zagato but prices will be similar, with buyers asked to pay around £200,000 for the car.
