The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is an endurance racing concept car
made by Aston Martin in collaboration with Zagato to celebrate
a 50 year partnership since the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato.
Introduced in Lake Como, Italy at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este on 21 May 2011,
the Zagato was awarded with the competition's "Design Award for Concept Cars
and Prototypes" which has also been won by the One-77 in 2009.
Like the Aston Martin V12 Vantage on which it is based,
the V12 Zagato is powered by a 6.0 L V12 engine
with 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque.
The concept features a new handcrafted aluminium body with
a front similar to the one of the Vantage and a heavily modified middle,
roof and rear section uniting the design DNAs of the two companies.
Another extra is the endurance racing fuel tank carrying up to 120 litres of fuel.
