Commemorating 50 years of the iconic DB4 GT Zagato, in collaboration with Zagato introduced the all-new V12 Zagato. This concept endurance race-car debuted on the shores of Lake Como, Italy at the Villa D’Este Concours last Saturday, the 21st May

It’s handcrafted Aluminium body is beautiful, yet daringly muscular. Every panel was formed using an English wheel quite unlike the traditional pre-formed panel techniques and the distinctive double bubble roof has been incorporated into the design, keeping true to Zagato tradition.

The Zagato comes specified with a bonded aluminium platform with a bespoke steel roll cage, all-around double wishbone suspension with fully adjustable Multimatic DSSV Dampers and a 120ltr fuel tank. It uses a 6.0-litre V12 engine which produces 510 bhp and 570 Nm of torque.

Aston will race the Zagato in the four hour VLN at Nürburgring on the 28th May and also plans to race 2 cars in the 24 hour race on 25th and 26th of June.
