Aston Martin V12 Zagato from London

Aston Martin V12 Zagato is the product of 50 years in collaboration with the +Aston Martin  and Zagato. V12 Zagato is a very unique Aston Martin, I know most of the Aston Martins are unique but Zagatos are really rare. Hopefully, I had chance to spot one at Mayfair, London. 
Aston Martin V12 Zagato is based on Aston Martin V12 Vantange, a tiny Aston Martin with a V12 engine. Zagato is hand crafted at Aston Martin factory at Gaydon delivers a very distinctive look. Especially the Zagato’s interpretation of the existing Aston Martin designed vanished the photocopy look of the Aston Martin V12 Vantange.
The uniqueness of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato is the 2000 man-hours of craftsmanship, exquisite detailing. Despite these existing notes from the Zagato, I still don’t get the point of offering manual gearbox!
Anyway, Aston Martin V12 Zagato is powered by a 6-lt V12 engine with 510 HP and 570 Nm of torque. Engine is coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox and only needs 4.2 seconds to  reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 305 km/h.


BMW Zagato Coupe Photos and Videos

BMW Zagato Coupe, it does sound Italian and it is kind of Italian. Zagato is an Italian design consultancy company and worked with many car brands for long decades. Recently, BMW and Zagato designed a new car BMW Zagato Coupe.
BMW Zagato Coupe is based on a BMW Z4 and all exterior design is hand-crafted aluminium. The rear-end panel is totally transparent and two individual exhaust are positioned outer edges of the Zagato Coupe. And the most distinctive part is the Z shaped front radiator grill!
The exterior paint start from black, a shimmering layer of metallic silver, and then six ultra-thin layers of specially design red colour is applied. And it is called, Rosso Vivace.
As you can understand from the short description of BMW Zagato Coupe, it is not an ordinary BMW. So, it likely to be powered by an upgraded engine. Unfortunately, BMW did not release any information to Zagato Coupe’s engine specifications. I assume that, it will be an upgraded 3-lt petrol engine. And also, I am expecting a significant weight loss after using hand-crafted aluminium.
Lastly, I noticed that BMW Zagato Coupe have some inspirational parts from BMW’s concept car GINA from 2008!
