Aston Martin Zagato on the Furka Pass

If this were the end of the line for the big, beautiful, unapologetically powerful supercar, it'd be a worthy send-off. But it isn't. The V12 Zagato is a glorious, unrepentant lump of noise and handbuilt luxury: not a gravestone inscription but proof the grand, glitzy GT is alive and well. The Aston Martin V12 Zagato will be in the history books alright, but it won't be the final chapter.
