Aston Martin has opened its first ever ‘Heritage Showroom’ at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell. It’s the culmination of a two year refurbishment…
With the production launch of the V12 Zagato under way, Aston has turned its hand to the rest of the Vantage range, revamping its looks, Sportshift transmission and chassis.
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.
Whether you love or loathe it, the one thing you cannot deny is how striking and aggressive it looks. In a good way.
This is the final production version of the V12 Zagato, inspired by the 50th anniversary last year of the DB4GT Zagato and handmade in very small numbers (150 cars) for the princely sum of £330,000 (plus local taxes).

Whether or not you’re a fan of Porsche’s most enduring model, it’s impossible to ignore just how influential it has been in the world of motoring (and motorsport). At 48 years young, it might be getting on a bit and yet it shows no sign of stagnating. The 2010 911 GT3 R Hybrid became the world’s first hybrid to compete in an international GT championship. But the crowning glory of Weissach’s most iconic car is the role it plays as a benchmark for every other manufacturer to reach and (try to) beat.
