The V12 Zagato

Almost 10 years on from the DB7 Zagato, Aston Martin and the Italian design company Zagato once again collaborated on an exciting new project, to celebrate the 50-year partnership they have had since the DB4 Zagato in 1961.

Every single panel on the car is completely changed from the V12 Vantage, including the roof and windscreen area. The car most noticeably features a double-bubble roof, huge and gaping air intakes at the front and side, a rear end laden with carbonfibre, and unique rear lamps.

There haven’t been many changes to the V12 Vantage underpinnings. One notable change is that the fuel tank capacity has been extended by 50 percent to 120 litres over the standard 80; giving the car a more endurance-based appeal.

The V12 Zagato comes with the six-speed manual transmission from the V12 Vantage, and it is also notable that the car has no performance advantage over its Vantage counterpart, with 60mph still coming up in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 190mph. The Zagato also comes with the same carbon ceramic brakes as the V12 Vantage.
