So we knew that Aston is going to make the Zagato V12. And now we have their official words on it, and a price tag. A big one!
Given the price of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage on which the Zagato V12 is based, we thought it should cost around £200,000. But we were wrong, very. The car, limited to 150 units, starts from £330,000 before tax. It is indeed a mind-boggling price for an Aston V12 in a fancy outfit, but people who order such cars usually don’t care, so it’s fine.
Aston Martin V12 Zagato will get into production in 2012 but you can place your order now. As it’s the case with limited edition models, it’s a matter of days before we report they are completely sold out!
More details on the V12 Zagato :
Featuring a handcrafted aluminium and carbon fibre body, the V12 Zagato delivers a beautiful and muscular design not possible using pre-formed panel techniques. Using the influences and skill of nearly 100 years of heritage in the craft, every aluminium panel was formed using an English wheel and traditionally crafted body bucks. Iconic Zagato design cues include the double bubble roof created in this case from five separate pieces illustrating further the intensity of craftsmanship involved in the construction of the V12 Zagato.
Designed for the focused driver, the V12 Zagato has been honed 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 (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque.
