Aston Martin to Build 150 Copies of the V12 Zagato, Priced from $526,977
Aston Martin will put its sensational V-12 Zagato into production and is taking orders now for deliveries beginning in the second half of 2012 . Base price is £330,000—or $526,977 at current exchange rates. The news of a production V-12 Zagato is hardly surprising; Aston Martin paraded two (fully engineered) race-spec Zagatos around this year’s Nürburgring 24-Hour race, and the car itself is based upon Aston’s V-12 Vantage (for a full rundown on the Zagato, head over to our previous coverage of its specs here). The V-12 Zagato will be hand-built at Aston Martin’s Gaydon facility, and apparently nothing about the car will change in the transition from “concept” to production. This means the Zagato will be powered by a 510-hp, 6.0-liter V-12 engine and wrapped in a handmade aluminum and carbon-fiber body. Aston Martin will build just 150 examples of the V-12 Zagato, so if you have sufficient coin to spend on a racy Aston, we suggest you place your order quickly.
