Aston V12 Zagato reaches production

It’s gorgeous. And it’s being revealed next week:

It first made waves at the Villa d’Este last May; from there it raced as a prototype in June at the gruelling Nürbürgring 24hrs, and last September made an appearance at the Frankfurt motor show. All as a full-blooded, big-winged cabin-less racecar.

Next week, in Kuwait, Aston Martin will finally reveal the road-going production version of its lightly expensive and gently unique Aston Martin V12 Zagato. And it will look like this.

Each Zagato takes around 2,000 man hours to complete, and is constructed from hand-crafted aluminium and carbon fibre, just like the One-77. The car sits on a V12 Vantage platform with that body, complete with ‘double-bubble’ roof, bonded to the aluminium structure of the base car, designed by Aston Martin design chief Marek Reichmann’s team in Britain. In fact, the Aston designer insists the new Zagato takes cues from the past, but forges a new design language for future Astons.

    I’m starting to become very disappointed with Aston with its inability to create a new FUCKIN INTERIOR!
