2011Aston Martin V12 Zagato
In reality, the engine is positioned as a concept car, yet its true purpose indicates built steel frame and polycarbonate safety glasses. All of these attributes, as we know, peculiar race cars and Aston Martin V12 Zagato really is – for 28 May, he will take part in one of the stages of racing series VLN.
The machine is based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage coupe and differs from the all-new aluminum body. But technical “stuffing” has not changed – under the hood is still the same 5.9-liter engine with dvenadtsatitsilindrovy 517 hp (570 Nm) as a “civil» Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
This car – the fruit of half a century of cooperation between the Zagato and Aston Martin, which was launched back in 1960 model Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. Then there were Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato in 1986, followed by Aston Martin DB7 Zagato 2002 and in 2003 appeared Aston Martin DB AR1 Zagato. But it’s all been machine purely “civilian”, but the Aston Martin V12 Zagato will have to fight with their rivals on the racetrack. It is still unknown how he will manifest as a racing car, but one car has already won a victory – at an auto show Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este car won the grand prize and the title of the best concept car.
And this victory is worth it, because at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este for the best car compete very complicated engine. Worth of at least BMW 328 Hommage and Ferrari Superamerica 45.
