Aston Martin V12 Zagato – 49 bite the dust

Sun, 22 Jul 2012

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato was going to have up to a 150 production run, but Aston Martin now say they will build just 101 cars.

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is a great creation with OTT styling courtesy of Zagato. But, when all’s said and done, it’s just a V12 Vantage in pretty clothes with a few tweaks, yet it costs three times as much – a slightly eye-watering £330k.

When Aston Martin officially revealed the V12 Zagato they revealed they planned to make ‘up to 150 cars’ when we’d actually predicted it would be 99. In fact, we said we thought it was a tall order to flog 150 £330k V12 Zagatos that really offered nothing more than a bit of flash. It seems we were right.

Aston Martin has announced that they won’t, after all, be building 150 V12 Zagatos but will instead limit the production run to 101 cars. Which we assume is based on the number of deposits they’ve taken – and a big dose of reality.

Not that the lack of interest in the V12 Zagato means it’s a bad car – it certainly isn’t. But £330k is too much for a car that offers just a hand made body and an interior that’s much the same as the regular V12 Vantage, as Aston Martin has obviously discovered.

Still, it should, eventually, make the 101 V12 Zagatos Aston Martin do build a more appealing investment.
