Aston Martin’s mighty, magnificent V12 Zagato comes with a $525,000 price tag—a bargain, if there ever was one.

After all, you’d have to pay three times as much for the even mightier Aston Martin One-77, and even more for the time machine you’d need to use to go back to 2010 and get on the waiting list, before all 77 snatched up. No word on how many Zagatos will be built, but Aston says it is on “a strictly first-come first-served basis.” Hey you keep buying them, and they’ll keep building them.

And they’ll start building them next year in Aston’s home of Gaydon, for the car that CEO Ulrich Bez calls “the perfect inspiration for the next 50 years of Aston Martin.” It will be based on the V12 Vantage, and for some will serve as a perfect dinghy to their Rapide. Call it an escape pod if you like.
