V12 Zagato (production)

(2012 - 2013)

The production of the planned 101 examples of the V12 Zagato began in the second half of 2012 using the same Gaydon facility that had previously been used to build the One-77. Harking back to the days of coachbuilding Newport Pagnell factory, the Zagato took an incredible 2000 hours to build, or at least five times as long as the regular V12 Vantage . The aluminium bodywork was made by Coventry Prototype Panels (CPP) who bought the Zagato company in 2011.

Production of the V12 Zagato ended midway through 2013 and the number of cars completed fell rather short of the intended total making this particular model one of the rarest and most desirable Aston Martins of recent years. So far as the Aston Martin Heritage Trust Register is aware, only 65 V12 Zagatos were ever built, two race prototypes, two pre-production and 61 production cars. In other words, actually rarer than the contemporary One-77.

Although the car was never intended to be available in the USA, a tiny number of European specification cars have been subsequently exported to the United States by using the ‘Show and Display’ rule

On introduction the UK price including taxes was announced to be £396,000, about double the cost of the regular  V12 Vantage.
