There is nothing else out there like an Aston Martin. Not one thing that even comes close to casting a shadow over the British icon, and in a market where companies fight tooth and nail, that is saying something. Recent works of art such as the V12 Vantage, Virage and DBS keep Aston at the front of the pack. However, when you see these designers and engineers being given the freedom to express the brand you end up with masterpieces such as the One-77. The Brits have done it again with the V12 Zagato.
First shown as a concept last year, the Zagato celebrates 50 years since Aston Martin first worked with the legendary Italian design house. The concept car won many awards and gained enough interest for the company to turn the dream into a reality. After being refined in endurance racing the V12 Zagato is now here. The hand built beast will cost you £330,000 before tax. For that you get not only this beautiful sculpture, but also 510BHP. 0-62MPH is vanquished in 4.2 seconds and the cars top speed is 190MPH. Aston Martin will produce no more than 150 examples.
