Production is limited to just 19 coupes and speedsters.
As well as working with legendary designer Ian Callum to revive the Aston Martin Vanquish, R-Reforged is also giving the V12 Zagato a new lease of life. Built to celebrate famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato's 100th anniversary, production of the Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage is limited to just 19 pairs of coupes and speedsters sold as the 'Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage Twins by R-Reforged' collection. After the project was announced earlier this year, the first customer cars have rolled off the production line at R-Reforged's new expanded facility in Warwick, UK. While availability is limited to only 19 pairs, the company has confirmed that a limited number is still available to order.
Based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, each car features bespoke carbon fiber coachwork, reworked interiors, and numerous powertrain and chassis upgrades. These features will encourage owners to use as well as cherish the highly collectible series.
Thanks to modifications made to the 5.9-liter V12, power has increased to 600 hp, a 85 hp bump over the original V12 Vantage. Both models boast active aerodynamics, ride on custom 19-inch forged wheels, and utilize a deployable rear wing.
Owners can also view their new V12 Zagato being assembled by visiting the plant in Warwick, UK, or through a dedicated online portal that enables them to monitor the progress of every build stage. To make the experience more personal, owners can also talk to the engineers building their cars to learn more about their creation.
"Seeing a car that was your vision, transform from a CAD render to being brought to life by talented people is very exciting," said Andrea Zagato, CEO at Zagato. "These cars are a truly exceptional way to mark the unique centenary Zagato has achieved and are sure to be a momentous and collectible legacy in our history."
Thomas Mayer, CEO of R-Universe encompassing R-Reforged, R-Experience, R-Service and R-Motorsport, added: "The Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage Twins by R-Reforged was the first automotive project we announced and to see the cars being assembled in our own expanded facility is a very proud moment for everyone here. Despite a very turbulent and unpredictable world, we have created and brought on stream a new facility, capable of building beautiful and very finely engineered cars. That's a statement of how serious R-Reforged is to become a respected creator of low volume and bespoke vehicles."
Deliveries of the Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage will start in 2021. Upon delivery, customers will also receive special gifts including Zagato Leica binoculars and a curated carbon-fiber box showing the specification of each car.
