Review Summary:

The 2014 will not be a common sight on the UAE’s roads, as only 150 have been made. If, however, you are one of the few for which this is a possibility, then we can’t describe how happy you’ll be.

Pros

Looks, features, power

Cons

Only 150 made, so you might not get a chance!

Looks

The 2014 Aston Martin Zagato is a car inspired by the Aston Martin-Zagato partnership of yesteryear, which started with DB4. Only available as a , the Zagato is based on the Vantage. Made from aluminium by hand, we think it looks great. Its design is heavily inspired by the 1960’s model, with the optional, simplistic, lightweight rear wing confirming as much.

Feels

The interior features an almost psychedelic design to it; even the roof material will send you into a trance. The gear lever is chunky to match the steering wheel; it really is something unique.

Engineering

The Zagato is made entirely by hand, hence its rareness. And for that reason alone you just know that this car will be something special. High-end materials are aplenty, and the ultra-light aluminium underbody means that this car will light up the race track.

What’s on offer?

Like so many Aston Martin’s, there is only one version of the V12 Zagato on offer, and it costs a truly staggering AED 1,900,000. The engine belts out 510hp and will be going flat-out at 305kp/h. Fuel economy is woeful, as 24 litres will give you 100km. But here’s the main thing; there is a very good chance that you might not even be able to get one. Aston Martin UAE doesn’t know how many are left, so if you want one, you’d better hurry.

Summing it…

Well, it’s an inspired race car that looks drop-dead gorgeous, is beautifully hand-crafted, very powerful, hysterically un-economical, and potentially not even available. We’re not sure we can sum this one up very easily, but if we were to give it a try, we’d say something along the line of “this dream car may be just that: only a dream”.
