This is such an unusual video that we just had to feature it, its 10 minutes spent in the company of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. The video is unusual because the only view of the Zagato we have is from the camera’s POV. Its stuck on the end of the rear bumper.
Crucially we get to hear what Aston’s Ford sourced and heavily modified V12 sounds like, in the future Aston will use engines sourced from Mercedes AMG, presumably also heavily modified.
Oh and if you think Aston shouldn’t use German technology, it already does. The Ford based engines are actually designed and manufactured in Germany. Aston built 150V12 Zagato’s priced at around £330,000 each from 20012 onward.
V12 Zagato is based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage chassis and is powered by the same 6.0 L V12 engine with 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque.
