The new Aston Martin V12 Zagato has been unveiled ahead of its official debut at the Concorso d'Eleganza this weekend. This latest concept marks the revival Aston Martin's long-standing collaboration with the famed coachbuilder in the 50th anniversary year of the iconic DB4GT.

Based on the V12 Vantage, the Zagato model features the coachbuilder's defining 'double bubble' roof and a new handcrafted aluminum body, which was formed using an English wheel and traditionally crafted body bucks. Each front fender alone comprises seven separate pieces of aluminum, combined and then hand finished.

"The V12 Zagato is an elegant yet brutal design which reflects the great balance between race performance and pure Aston Martin style," said Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman. "The design team at Gaydon spent time refining the concept using a mixture of the latest computer based modeling techniques along with crafting traditional clay models to give a real world idea of proportion, stance and detail."
