The production version of Aston Martin V12 Zagato has just made its debut at the sunny and warm Kuwait. But the first official video of the car shows it flexing muscle in snow.
Even Aston admits the Zagato V12 is one of the most exclusive and desirable Aston Martins ever produced. The car was conceived as a one-off to celebrate Zagato and Aston’s reunion. But after receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from potential customers, they decided to make it in a strictly limited number of just 150.
Creating each V12 Zagato is a painstaking process that takes approximately 2,000 man-hours to complete. Just like the One-77, the V12 Zagato is constructed from a combination of hand crafted aluminium and carbon fibre. The bonnet, signature ‘double-bubble’ roof and doors are hand-crafted aluminium, while the front and rear fenders, door sills and boot lid surround are made from carbon fibre.
The finished body is then painted in the same dedicated area as the One-77. Four unique colours have been created for the Aston Martin V12 Zagato: Scintilla Silver, Alloro Green, Alba Blue and Diavolo Red. The painting process alone takes some 100 hours to complete and is followed by the marriage of the body and the drivetrain within the sports car production area. From there the V12 Zagato is transferred to the standalone facility originally built to house One-77 production, where the build is completed.
