First production Aston Martin V12 Zagato to debut at the 2012 Kuwait Concours d’Elegance image

Aston Martin will debut the first production V12 Zagato at the Kuwait Concours d’ Elegance on 15-18 February, the British manufacturer said on Friday.

The computer-generated rendering above provides a clue as to how the car will be styled, confirming that it will keep many of the aggressive lines seen on the racing version.

The V12 Zagato, being built in strictly limited numbers of up to 150 cars, is due for first customer deliveries in late 2012. Combining traditional craftsmanship and high technology, the V12 Zagato also boasts Aston Martin’s most dynamic bonded aluminium platform and the power of the company’s acclaimed 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque, the company said.

Dr Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin: “We are excited to show the new V12 Zagato for the first time in production form at the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance.

“Over 50 years since the introduction of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagato have collaborated to create this modern interpretation which remains true to the original focus of craftsmanship, performance and exclusivity.”
