Aston Martin V12 Zagato to be Unveiled at Kuwait Concours

Special Edition

In just a couple of weeks, Aston’s long-awaited limited edition V12 Zagato will finally take a bow.

Aston Martin is finally ready to unveil the stunning V12 Zagato road-car. Back in August it was announced the car would debut at Frankfurt, but for whatever reason it didn't materialize. Now the automaker's CEO Ulrich Bez has declared it will take a bow at the third annual Kuwait Concours d'Elegance on February 15th. "We are excited to show the new V12 Zagato for the first time in production form at the 2012 Kuwait Concours d'Elegance.

"Over 50 years since the introduction of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagato have collaborated to create this modern interpretation which remains true to the original focus of craftsmanship, performance and exclusivity." Hand-built at Aston's headquarters in Gaydon, England, the V12 Zagato is based on the 6.0-liter V12 Vantage, but with a custom aluminum and carbon-fiber body molded by Zagato engineers. The drivetrain is left untouched so delivers 510hp and 420lb-feet of torque, but the interior has undergone some modification. Only 150 copies of this mean looking car are planned, priced at £330,000.
