Despite the fact that celebrating an incredible Aston Martin of the past the Aston Martin V12 Zagato could be no unimportant pastiche of the first. Rather the venture was seen as the ideal chance to take Aston Martin's ethos of innovation and convention to another and energizing level. To this end the V12 Zagato joins the cutting edge thoughts, materials, procedures and innovation spearheaded on One-77, while staying consistent with the immaculateness and craftsmanship of its celebrated ancestor.
The V12 Zagato is "a celebration of both Aston Martin's heritage and its future". He continues: "Our relationship with Zagato stretches back more than 50 years. Together in that time we have created a series of very special cars. The first - the DB4GT Zagato - is a true icon: fast, beautiful and incredibly desirable. In the V12 Zagato I believe we have captured the spirit of that car and combined it with a confident twist of modernity to give it a character all of its own."
