Aston Martin has published a set of photos with the race car version V12 Zagato which will undergo the last series of tests at the Nurburgring circuit this weekend, before the 24-hour endurance race hosted on the well known German track will take place at the end on June.

Unlike the show car presented at the Villa D'Este Concours in Italy on May 21st, which featured an orange livery, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato Race Car Concept received a typical British racing green body finish along with a series of adaptations that will help the car compete better under racing conditions. These include the new under-body, the massive rear wing, the stiffer suspension and the new racing wheels.

Aston Martin will actually field two exemplars of the V12 Zagato race car this weekend, each powered by 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 510 bhp(380 kW) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque. The British

manufacturer did not mention this, but we expect them to use the same set-up as the one featured by the show car, which means that power will be sent to the rear via a six-speed automated manual transmission and a rear slip differential.
