Video: Aston Martin V12 Vantage Zagato in action

With its 510 bhp V12 engine and unique styling, inspired by the iconic 1960 DB4GT Zagato, the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato is one-of-a-kind – or to be more precise, one of 150 very special cars that are now being produced in the factory originally developed for Aston’s £1 million One-77.

Priced at £330,000 (plus local taxes), the V12 Zagato is “..a celebration of both Aston Martin’s heritage and its future”, according to Aston Martin’s CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez.

Given how rare and cherished the V12 Zagato is likely to be (shame), this might be the only chance you get to see one in motion – although a little bird tells me that Goodwood Festival of Speed (28 June – 1 July) might be a good place to spot one before they’re all delivered to customers..
