Aston Martin debuts production V12 Zagato
Aston Martin has been a staple of past Bond movies and most likely a cornerstone of futures releases with new gadgets and projectiles strategically placed by none other than “Q”. Not to be outdone, the British carmaker has pulled back the sheets on their production V12 Zagato. The sporty road car will be unveiled in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
The V12 Zagato will take more than 2,000 man-hours to manufacture thanks to hand-hewn body panels, including the hood, roof and doors. To no ones surprise, Aston Martin has committed to building just 150 examples. The V12 Zagato will also make extensive use of carbon fiber, with the front and rear fenders, trunk lid and door sills all constructed from the composite. Using the same underpinnings as the V12 Vantage, buyers can look forward to a 6.0-liter V12 engine with 510 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, while a six-speed manual transmission puts the power to the ground.[vc_gallery type=”nivo” onclick=”link_image” img_size=”600×375″ images=”2761,2760,2759″ width=”1/1″ last=”last”]
