The new Aston Martin V12 Zagato is a work of art built by skilled craftsmen to be driven and enjoyed by the world’s most discerning car collectors; the V12 Zagato is a fitting tribute to its illustrious ancestor. The on sale price is £330,000 (plus local taxes) the production specification V12 Zagato will be showcased at the Geneva Salon International in March 2012 and the first deliveries are scheduled for autumn 2012.
The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is constructed from a combination of hand crafted aluminium and carbon fibre. The bonnet, signature ‘double-bubble’ roof and doors are hand-crafted aluminium, while the front and rear fenders, door sills and boot lid surround are made from carbon fibre. Four unique colours have been created for the new V12 Zagato; Scintilla Silver, Alloro Green, Alba Blue and Diavolo Red, the painting process alone takes some 100 hours to complete.
The interior is trimmed with Seven Bridge of Weir hides which offers durability while preserving the natural texture of the leather. Hand-stitched quilting of a unique design creates a flowing pattern that evokes a dynamic sense of movement across the seats and headlining, while ‘Z’ embroidery in the headrests and rear parcel shelf add a further flourish. Satin-finish carbon fibre on the dashboard and centre stack is perfectly complimented by piano black accents and satin black rotary switchgear. Carbon fibre sill plaques with ’V12 Zagato’ inlaid metal script provide a distinctive finishing touch.
