Aston Martin has released a new video showing the highlights of the history of V12 Zagato. Starting from the DB4GT Zagato, the first vehicle produced by Aston Martin in partnership with Italian carmaker Zagato, the video chronicles the stages of production of the car, including tests carried out by two prototypes competing at the Nurburgring 24 Hours race.
To mark the 50th anniversary of this successful collaboration and to pay tribute to the iconic DB4 GT Zagato, Aston Martin has created the V12 Zagato, a true supercar with a 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine with output rated at 517 hp and 570 Nm of torque.
Performance figures for this car are impressive: acceleration from standstill to 100 km/h is covered in just 4.2 seconds and top speed is 305 km/h. These are the result of excellent balanced suspensions and a specially designed chassis, which allows the car to perform well both on the road and on the track. Production is limited to 150 units only.
