Aston Martin V12 Zagato news and pictures

Aston Martin has revealed the production version of its V12 Zagato supercar. Just 150 examples will be built, each costing an eye watering £330,000 plus local taxes. In the UK, that equals £396,000. That’s three times the cost of the V12 Vantage the Zagato is based on, with its 510bhp/420lb ft 5.9-litre V12 engine unchanged. The extra cash is spent on a painstaking makeover, with around 2000 hours spent crafting the Zagato at Aston’s Gaydon base.  It’s certainly more eye-grabbing than the V12 Vantage, its hand-crafted aluminium body boasting a double bubble roof and plenty of intricate carbonfibre addenda, the front splitter, rear diffuser and spoiler the most dramatic details. The showroom-spec Aston Martin V12 Zagato will be displayed at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March, with the first customers receiving their cars in the autumn.
