Aston Martin V12 Zagato Racer sketch released, getting ready to hit up Nurburgring 24 hour race

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato has generated a lot of buzz for the brand and has rightfully won the the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes.

Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez is now looking forward now to taking the car to the Nurburgring where it will have its racing debut at the 53rd ADAC ACAS H&R-Cup VLN race in less than a week, on the May 28th.

Bez will lead a driver team which will eventually race two V12 Zagato cars at the Nurburgring 24 hour race on June 25th/26th.

“Nurburgring is where we sign-off every new model in terms of dynamics, and there can be no better place for the new V12 Zagato to be finally tested,” Bez said. “The 24 hour race is the ultimate road test and a fitting introduction for the V12 Zagato.”

Refresher: Power for the Aston Martin V12 Zagato comes from a 6.0 liter V12 engine making 510-hp and a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. The engine is mated to a six-speed automated manual gearbox with auto shift manual/select shift manual. The rear-wheel-drive model features an all round independent double wishbone with fully adjustable Multimatic DSSV dampers. The Aston Martin V12 Zagato will appear in the form of an endurance race car to compete at the Nurburgring 24 hour race.
