Aston Martin V12 Zagato Racer to Show Up at Goodwood

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato endurance race car concept that recently completed the arduous Nurburgring 24 hour race last weekend will make its British debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 1 July.

“In a very short lead time after Villa D’Este we approached the Nürburgring race with two concept cars and the aim of finishing the 24 hours as the ultimate test for the V12 Zagato and we are very satisfied to have achieved that,”
Aston Martin’s Head of Motorsport, David King, said.

Introduced as a modern interpretation of the famous Aston Martin and Zagato collaboration in the 50th anniversary year of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, the V12 Zagato revives a collaboration which has produced some of the most beautiful and sought-after automotive creations ever.

The partnership takes inspiration from the past to create a modern adaptation based on Aston Martin’s ultimate interpretation of power and presence in the Vantage range: the V12 Vantage. Making its first public appearance at the Villa D’Este Concours last month, the new V12 Zagato won the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes.

“The sight and sound of the V12 Zagatos clearly thrilled the 200,000 plus spectators at the Nürburgring so we’re delighted that less than a week afterwards the car is able to appear at the Goodwood Festival and make its debut in front of our British supporters,”
King added.

The V12 Zagato will be joined by the 7.3 litre Aston Martin One-77 and the new Virage at the festival, taking on the famous Goodwood hill route. The dramatically styled two-door, two-seat sports coupe is based on an innovative new carbon fiber monocoque body structure and adopts new active aerodynamic technology to produce Aston Martin’s definitive sports car.
