No surprise here (well, at least to us) – the Aston Martin V12 Zagato won the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. The model was introduced to the public at the event as a modern take of the famous Aston Martin and Zagato collaboration in the 50th anniversary year of the iconic DB4GT Zagato.
“It is an honour to win this award in Italy, where many great designs originated from, and this victory shows that Aston Martin has successfully developed their own renowned design language over the past years,” said Marek Reichman, Design Director of Aston Martin. “The result is a car that incorporates the core values of the Zagato design language which we perfectly translated into Aston Martin’s modern design DNA.”

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.
