The stunning love child of Aston Martin and the Zagato design house will officially be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month, with both existing examples of the car taking center stage at the British automaker’s stand.

With the announcement, Aston Martin has also now officially confirmed it will build just 150 versions of the car, priced at £330,000 (or roughly $540,000). In celebration of 50 years since the original tie-up between Aston Martin and Zgato, the modified V12 Vantage uses a hand crafted carbon fiber and aluminum body and is powered by a 510-hp 5.9-liter V12 engine.

The two cars (Zig and Zag) will both be on display in Frankfurt after campaigning at the Nurburgring 24 Hour race. “Zig” will showcase the full race car aerodynamics package, while “Zag” has been converted back to something more closely resembling the production road car.

Joining the two Zagato cars on the stand in Frankfurt will be the new Vantage S, the Virage and the One-77 supercar.
