19 coupes and 19 speedometers are manufactured, all with carbon fiber bodies and a 600 hp V12.
Aston Martin and Zagato have been creating automotive art for six decades and have now reunited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the body builder. Based on the old V12 Vantage and sold exclusively as a pair, the coupé and sprinter duo are given a new carbon fiber body with a gold Z emblem to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the famous Italian body shop.
Amazing cars will be limited to 19 cars per body shape, with the Coupé Zagato’s signature “double bubble roof” and the Sprinter living up to its name by not having a roof to further reduce weight. These handcrafted cars have more than their sleek bodies inspired by the 2011 V12 Vantage Zagato, as Aero Aero’s Heritage Twins benefit with a rear wing that automatically deploys at high speeds to ensure stability.
A more noticeable hardware upgrade can be found in the engine compartment, where the 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine delivers 600 HP or 75 HP more than the original V12 Vantage and an additional 37 HP compared to the V12 Vantage S. The Coup Gesund brings it in line with the V12 Vantage V600, which was released a few years ago as the model’s last hurray.
Before a full unveiling planned for the summer, Zagato shows the first coupé and the first sprinter, as indicated by Marella Rivolta Zagato, who, together with her husband Andrea, heads the body builder. She is also the company’s art director, explaining why gold and platinum were a source of inspiration:
Deliveries to customers are slated to begin in the last quarter of the year, and many of the cars have already been sold at a breathtaking price. Those lucky enough to claim the coupe and sprinter not only get a special gift box, but can also fully customize their cars by discussing their requests with Aston Martin designers.
In addition, the owners have the opportunity to bring their cars to life in Warwick, UK, where the bespoke manufacturer R-Reforged will build the cars in its new 30,000 square meter facility. The company claims that it offers customers an “infinite” range of colors and can match the exterior and interior with virtually any color swatch provided by the car owner.
