Aston Martin V12 Zagato to Make Auto Show Debut in Frankfurt

We’ve already seen and heard plenty of things about Aston Martin’s exquisite V12 Zagato, but the supermodel never got a change to shine at a major Auto Show, yet this will all change after it makes its appearance felt at the 64th IAA International Show at Frankfurt.

The V12 limited production car will shine amongst the largest display of contemporary Aston Martins ever seen at a Motor Show. Two hand crafted models, fresh off their Nurburgring 24 hour race, will make their presence next month.

The first of the two V12 Zagatos being shown at the Frankfurt Auto Show, finished in its distinctive green livery is in
full endurance race car spec as campaigned at the Nurburgring. The car, nicknamed ‘Zig’ by the factory team features a full aerodynamic package including front splitter, dive planes, large rear diffuser and spoiler.

The second of the cars, nicknamed ‘Zag’, was originally shown at the Villa D’Este before being converted into the same full racing specification as the sister car. Since the 24 hour race, it has been returned to its original show car state.

Although showing a racing car interior, the car is meant to closely illustrate what customers willing to buy the V12 Zagato will get. In addition to this, Aston Martin today releases the first conceptual illustrations of the road car variant that will go into production from mid 2012. Not much has changed, but the color is really unique.

The pair of V12 Zagatos will join the Aston Martin stand at Frankfurt in September alongside the stunning One-77 supercar and the recently launched Virage and Vantage S.

autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
