Aston Martin Zagato road car revealed

Posted on: August 25th, 2011

Three HUNDRED and thirty thousand. That’s precisely how many pounds you’ll need to buy the roadgoing Aston Zagato. That’s £239,105 more than the V12 Vantage it’s based on…

 

So how are Aston justifying the price tag? It’s all about the styling, it seems. Designed to celebrate the golden anniversary of the similarly handsome DB4 GT Zagato, the hand-built body – an aluminium and carbonfibre mélange – was penned by the Italian firm and sits on relatively untouched Vantage underwear.

 

The engine’s standard, too – it’s the 6.0-litre V12, which produces a piffling 510bhp and 420 lb ft of torque.

 

But it is very pretty. Very very pretty. And, considering just 150 are getting made, the chance of running into another one stands at comfortably long odds.

 

We’ll be able to bring you more pics of it after this year’s Frankfurt motor show – Aston’s showing off the sister car to the one we drove around the Nurburgring and the concept originally shown at Villa d’Este concours.

 

Can’t wait till then? Check out these fantasmic galleries: this one’s of the car that starred at the concours, this one’s our drive around the ‘Ring and this one shows off the very sexy DB4GT Zagato.

 

It’s not clear yet whether any are going to make it to Singapore, but you can bet your bottom dollar (isn’t that appropriate) that the price tag will have plenty of commas and zeroes in it.
