Not so many tuning companies can create special creations for supercars like Aston Martin. But there are some exceptions that can reveal stunning packages.
R-Reforged has revealed the first brace of cars created to celebrate Zagato’s centenary, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged. Making their debut are the first pair of TWINS, which are prototypes specified by Andrea and Marella Zagato and reserved for the private Zagato collection.
Exclusively available as a pair, in Coupé and Speedster form, just 19 customer sets of the desirable Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged will be sold. Each pair will be hand assembled in R-Reforged’s new 2,800 square metre premises in Warwick, UK.
Styled at Zagato’s Milan headquarters, the iconic Italian design house has evolved the 2011 Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Coupé form and created a new, pure Speedster twin. Sharper, cleaner and highly collectible – thanks to their limited run and significance in Zagato’s history – both are now fully clothed in carbon fibre.
The 19 owners of this rare and special series, licenced by Aston Martin, will also experience the significant transformation to vehicle performance delivered through a series of meaningful engine and dynamic improvements. Pure and aggressive, the potent 5.9-litre V12 now packs close to 600bhp, up 80bhp over standard, thanks to R-Reforged’s engineers opting for the performance aluminium air intake and Titanium exhaust, accentuating arguably one of the world’s greatest engine soundtracks. The lean stance of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged is enhanced by the 10 mm ride height reduction and 20 mm stretched track. At each corner sit 19 i nch centre lock wheels forged by Formula One supplier APP Tech, with an increased offset, wrapped in Michelin’s revered Pilot Sport 4S rubber.
Inside are sensory rich materials, including Bridge of Weir’s finest Grade A leather with an almost infinite range of colours, bespoke patterns and textures. Choices to-date include a mottled surface texture, just like that of a pebble, and gloss leather to complement the exterior body finish.
Owners will also receive a series of incredibly special tailored gifts that starts with a TWINS carbon fibre presentation case, cataloguing specification details using scale models and samples. Customers will continue to receive a stream of themed gifts, invitations and experiences throughout their ownership.
