Official: Aston Martin will produce the V12 Zagato, costs £330k image

British automaker Aston Martin confirms production of a strictly limited number of the new V12 Zagato following its successful unveilings.

Based on the V12 Vantage and sporting a handcrafted aluminium and carbon fibre body, the V12 Zagato will be produced in very limited numbers for discerning customers.

Orders are now being taken on a strictly first come first served basis and production is expected to commence during summer 2012 at Aston Martin’s global headquarters at Gaydon, Warwickshire.

Designed for the focused driver, the V12 Zagato has been set-up with pure driving enjoyment in mind. The V12 Zagato combines Aston Martin’s most dynamic bonded aluminium platform with the power of the 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 510 bhp (517 PS) and 570 Nm of torque.

The V12 Zagato debuted at the Villa D’Este Concours on the shores of Lake Como in Italy on 18th/19th June where it won the design award in the Concepts and Prototypes class.
