Aston Martin has pulled the wraps off the new V12 Zagato , and she is one hell of a ride. The new One-77 was my favorite Aston but now this new Zagato takes first prize.
What better place than Geneva to debut the car for Aston? The 330,000 Aston is so hot that James Bond himself will not be able to get his hands on one. There will only be 150 of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato produced. Those lucky enough to get one will start reving them up come fourth quarter 2012.
For Aston Martin’s CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez, the V12 Zagato is “a celebration of both Aston Martin’s heritage and its future”. He continues: “Our relationship with Zagato stretches back more than 50 years. Together in that time we have created a series of very special cars. The first – the DB4GT Zagato – is a true icon: fast, beautiful and incredibly desirable. In the V12 Zagato I believe we have captured the spirit of that car and combined it with a confident twist of modernity to give it a character all of its own.”
To make just one Zagato takes 2,000 man hours and to drive one to its top speed limit will be infiniti joy to the lucky owners of this Aston Martin. Aston has not said how fast it will go to 60 mph or the car's top speed. The buyers of the car won't be looking for those numbers either ,this car will be a collector car.
