NEWS: Aston Martin Zagato

Aston Martin Zagato Concept

From CarGurus Blog: 'What you’re looking at is the Aston Martin V12 Zagato concept, a collaboration between Aston and Italian design firm Zagato. The car previews a model destined to run the 24 Hours of Nürburgring this June.  In the past we’ve accused Aston of doing the same design over and over, which, quite honestly, we don’t have a problem with. This V12 Zagato changes everything. While still amazingly gorgeous, it manages to infuse some weirdness along with bits of a Ferrari FF and even some Nissan GT-R.'

'The gaping front grille contributes to the epic look, and the giant side vents look almost deep enough to reach into and change the air filter.

Underneath that menacing hood lurks a 5.9-liter V12 that channels 510 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed single-clutch automated gearbox and a carbon driveshaft within a magnesium torque tube.'
