We are delighted to share with you our Aston...
Launched in 2011, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of a unique collaborative association between Aston Martin and famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato. An historic partnership, which first produced the iconic DB4 GT Zagato of 1960 and has, over a 60+ year period, produced a unique collection of high-performance Aston Martin cars, all in extremely small numbers, all with lighter weight than production variants and all with ‘trade mark’ distinctive Zagato body styling and interior features.
The V12 Zagato, clothed in lightweight hand formed aluminium and carbon fibre body panels, is sculpted with signature ‘double bubble’ rooflines and accentuated rear wheel arches, in true Zagato tradition. From the unique ‘Z’ pattern front grille to the rear wings and tailgate, diffuser and splitter’s, formed from carbon fibre, every aspect of the distinctive Zagato styling contributes to give the V12 Vantage a purposeful and menacing appearance, whilst reducing the car’s total weight, by circa 150Kg’s.
In total, just 61 V12 Zagato’s (including two pre-production cars) were manufactured and supplied to appreciative collectors and enthusiasts, with many now forming part of celebrated collections world-wide.
Using data supplied by the Aston Martin Heritage Trust, our research confirms this car to be one of only 18 right hand drive examples and the only right-hand drive car finished in Black.
The UK specified example, we are delighted to offer, finished in AML Carbon Black with Obsidian black semi-aniline hides, is fitted with optional sports seats, full gloss black road wheels, carbon fibre A-pillar finishers and door mirror caps, black textured exhaust tailpipes and black brake callipers.
Each V12 Zagato, was constructed upon the highly respected V12 Vantage VH platform and running gear, with 510bhp and 570 NM of torque produced by the sonorous 6.0 litre V12 engine. Mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle and with significantly lower weight than its regular production brethren, overall performance in all respects, was lifted to a new and outstanding level.
With just 1,781 miles covered from new, the car being offered is in immaculate condition throughout and benefit’s from professionally applied, ceramic paint protection. First registered in the Channel Islands, if staying in the UK, Taxes will require payment prior to release for UK registration.
During the last ownership, regular maintenance of this exceptional car, has been carried out by Aston Martin Agents and the car professionally stored in climate-controlled conditions, when not in use.
