Aston Martin has collaborated with Zagato for six decades now and to celebrate the coachbuilders 100th anniversary, there is a new offering sold exclusively as a pair.
The cars celebrate the centenary of the Zagato Atelier (1919-2019) and 60-year long partnership between the Italian design house and British sports car manufacturer. Offered exclusively in pairs to 19 customers, the Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged are based on the 2011 Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato.
The modern cars will benefit from tweaks made to Aston Martin’s 6.0-liter V-12 in the years following the release of the original V12 Zagatos. It means peak power will register at 600 horsepower, up from the originals’ 510-hp rating. Carbon fiber is being used for the bodies, and active aero elements, including an extendable rear wing, will also be incorporated in the design. Also unique to the modern cars will be their 19-inch center-lock wheels.
Production of the cars will be handled at R-Reforged’s new facility in Warwick, United Kingdom, and the first will be revealed this summer ahead of the start of deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2020. The cars will be built alongside another Aston Martin project, the Vanquish 25 from former Aston Martin and Jaguar designer Ian Callum.
Owners will get to specify every element of the Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged. The color palette will be infinite, offering the opportunity to match the interior and exterior to any color sample provided by the client.
R-Reforged’s second project, the Aston Martin Vanquish 25 by CALLUM, will also enter production this year.
