The fruit of the collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato, a car that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, has been unveiled. This is the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, a concept which will be seen at the Villa D’Este Concours, on the shores of Lake Como, in Italy, tomorrow – May 21st. 
Featuring a handmade aluminium body and panels that were formed using an English
wheel and traditionally crafted body bucks, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato delivers a muscular appearance through a series of the traditional Zagato design cues like the double bubble roof.
Powering this racer concept is a 6.0-litre V12 engine delivering 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automated manual gearbox with electric hydraulic control and combined with a rear slip differential.
The Aston Martin V12 Zagato features a bespoke steel rool cage, a double wishbone suspension with fully adjustable dampers, and ventilated floating grooved discs with 6 piston callipers at the front and 4 piston callipers at the rear.
A 120 litre racing fuel tank has also been fitted, and for its first track experience, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato will appear in the form of an endurance racer at this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour race on June 25/26.
