Sketched: Zagato’s Beautiful History with Aston Martin

Zagato and Aston Martin have a long and storied history, dating all the way back to 1960.

Aston Martin and Zagato are one of the most famous and recognizable tandems in the history of automotives. With a history dating back to over 50 years ago and the 1960 DB4 GT Zagato, the new V12 Zagato is the epitome of perfection of their collaboration. Called the "most British" of all the Astons, the limited edition V12 Zagato has been engineered, prototyped and manufactured in England. Only the sketches and mathematical models were carried out in Milano, where Zagato is based.

Zagato and Aston Martin's collaboration has led to a handful of models in the past, all of which appear in the sketch. They include the aforementioned DB4 GT Zagato (1960), V8 Vantage Zagato (1985), DB7 V12 Zagato (2002), DB-AR1 (2003) and the new V12 Zagato. So, which collaboration is your favorite?
