limited to 150 models worldwide
The Aston Martin V12 Zagato road car is now on sale for £ 330,000 (plus local taxes, where applicable) with first deliveries expected in autumn 2012.
Aston Martin V12 Zagato is limited to 150 models worldwide, so it really is a case of ordering it now – or you won’t get one. If you want to look at a production specification V12 Zagato before ordering then you may wish to visit the Geneva Salon International in March 2012.
It takes around 2,000 man-hours to build a V12 Zagato - and like the One-77, 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 bumpers, door sills and boot lid surround are made from carbon fibre.
The finished body is then painted in the same dedicated area as the One-77. Four unique colours have been created for the V12 Zagato: Scintilla Silver, Alloro Green, Alba Blue and Diavolo Red. The painting process alone takes some 100 hours to complete and is followed by the marriage of the body and the drivetrain within the sports car production area. From there the V12 Zagato is transferred to the standalone facility originally built to house One-77 production, where the build is completed.
The interior receives the same detailed attention. Seven Bridge of Weir hides – in semi-aniline finish to offer durability while preserving the natural texture of the leather - are used to trim the V12 Zagato’s interior. 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.Published 9 February 2012
