Aston Martin Zagato: driven at the ‘Ring
Where better to test a bespoke prototype than the Nürburgring 24 Hour race?
Posted: 28 May 2012
Back in the day, Touring, Ghia, Bertone and Pininfarina all bodied and rebodied Astons, but it's Zagato that has the strongest relationship with the firm. I'm convinced the old man Ugo Zagato had a thing for a shapely lady's bottom
- he wouldn't be the first Italian artist to have looked there for inspiration - and Zagato's various Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Lancias are among the most appealingly eccentric coach-built Italian specials of all.
Arse-fixated he may have been, but Ugo was also among the first men to spot the potential of aluminium in the car business.
