Zagato, it’s a name synonymous with style, grace and power. The double-bubble roof screams sex appeal and spy-like mystery that captures imaginations faster than flipping a light switch.
That’s why we were so excited last week when images leaked of the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato, scheduled to make its public debut at the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance. Well, who likes waiting anyway? The good news is, there’s a new video available today that showcases the V12 Zagato running down a road, engine roaring.
The 150-unit-limited beast is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of 510-hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, pushing from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
Of course this, perhaps more than many other exotics, is reserved for the wealthiest connoisseurs with a roughly $520,000 price tag.
It’s true that there are plenty of cars out there capable of more power, higher speeds and crazier shenanigans for a lot less coin, but with far less style, monsieur.
Watch the video and drink in the exhaust note after the jump.
GALLERY: Aston Martin V12 Zagato
We already knew that the Aston Martin V12 Zagato was scheduled to make its public debut at the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance, but that didn’t stop the Internet from finding a PDF ahead of time revealing the supercar in all its glory.
The new V12 Zagato will be available in coupe form only and will be made exclusively for just 150 lucky owners. The exotic will be hand crafted at the British automaker’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK and is expected to make its first deliveries later this year.
Detailed in the PDF leak includes a full spec sheet of the V12 Zagato including the 6.0L V12 powerplant with 510-hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. According to Aston Martin, it’ll hit 62-mph in just 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 190-mph. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The vehicle will also feature four unique Zagato exterior paint schemes and will come with 19-inch wheels unique to the vehicle. More exciting in the leak are photos of the interior which shows off the custom hand-stitching, plenty of carbon fiber and the lightweight seats with six-way adjustment.
Pricing on the Zagato is extravagant as well with it sitting at around $520,000 based on today’s conversion rates (£330,000).
