First unveiled at the Concorso Villa d’Este, Aston Martin gave its first North American viewing of the custom V12 Zagato at a private event just outside Monterey, as a part of the week long Pebble Beach festivities.

The bespoke exotic is the latest in a long line of collaborations between the classic Italian design house and the British automaker. It might also be the best looking. While still a genuine Zagato, the firm’s often excessively classical design cues have been traded in for some more 21st century style. In particular are the stunning 20-inch wheels. The rounded front and pointed rear are true Zagato traits, integrating some very functional aerodynamics for the race track. In fact, this is the very car Aston Martin competed with at the Nurburgring 24 Hour Race. And yes… it’s had a bit of a touch up since then.

Based on the V12 Vantage model, like that car the Zagato version makes 510-hp!
