This Corvette Costs $125,000 Because Of Its Zagato Body

For Sale / 17 Comments

Would you pay $125,000 for a rebodied Corvette C6?

Italian coachbuilding company Zagato is most commonly associated with Aston Martin, with rare examples including the awe-inspiring Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato. That's not the only car company to enlist the talents of Zagato, however. One such alternative is the Perana Z-One Zagato, which you've probably never heard of because very few were ever made. Based on the Corvette C6, the rarely-seen sports car first appeared as a concept at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show before it began production a few years later.

In that time, AC Cars was revived, and the Z-One effectively became a precursor to the re-badged AC 378 GT Zagato. Consequently, very few Z-Ones were made, only ten examples in fact and only seven thought to have been delivered in the US – one of which has now been listed on eBay for $125,000 with only 2,765 miles on the clock. For the asking price, you get a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 with 430 horsepower being sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. What you don't get, however, is traction control, so handle with care. $125,000 sounds like an awful lot for what is essentially a quirky-looking Corvette C6, but its rarity bumps up the price considerably.

Then again, it's relatively cheap compared to how much Aston Martin have charged for its limited Zagato models – remember when dealers were asking $850,000 for the privilege of owning a Vanquish Zagato Volante?
