What a way to celebrate 50th anniversary year of the iconic DB4GT Zagato in collaboration with famous Aston Martin, resulting in new racing car Aston Martin’s “V12 Zagato” on the road!
New Racing Car entered in the auto car industry as V12 Zagato was finally unveiled yesterday at Villa D’Este Concours at Lake Como Italy. The new V12 Zagato’s concept celebrated its debut and gauged thousands of customers interest.
Dr Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin said: “The Zagato design language is a perfect complement to our design and engineering expertise. After 50 years of the two companies being associated with each other the partnership has produced some of the world’s most iconic cars.”
“Of course, fifty years ago Italian design houses were widely seen as leading the way with new designs but now and supported by our independency, Aston Martin has its own in-house design ability so this new venture with Zagato is more collaborative than it perhaps would have been in the past.”
“The task for us has been to create a concept that is a natural successor to those iconic cars that have gone before. Matching the technology of the age with the traditional skills vital to deliver such a bespoke and exclusive sports car will lead to a strictly limited run of road going V12 Zagatos.”
