The first product of this renewed working partnership will be shown for the first time at the famous Villa D’Este Concours on 21st May 2011, with a racing debut at Nürburgring later in the month. Aston Martin and Zagato have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship since their first collaboration which culminated in the production of the now iconic DB4GT Zagato 50 years ago.

“Now is the right time for a new Aston Martin Zagato and in combining our design intelligence I think we can create something fitting of the iconic DB4GT Zagato that has gone before and since established itself as one of the most famous Aston Martins of all time.”

2002- Aston Martin DB7 Zagato

At the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin announced its intention to work with Zagato to create a new, limited edition model for the 21st Century – the DB7 Zagato.

The two companies first began working together in 1961 when they produced 19 examples of the DB4GT Zagato, and then in 1987 when they launched the V8 Zagato Coupe and Volante.

A Proper Aston Martin : V8 Vantage S [Driven]

When the Vantage was introduced in 2005 it had a 4.3-litre V8 engine and just 380 bhp. It seemed fine for a GT but Aston Martin was hell bent on presenting a real challenge to Porsche's 911. However the target had been upgraded from 996 to 997 status and as we all know is a substantial jump in performance and handling prowess. The Vantage had to up its game substantially.

The next iteration came in the form of the 4.7-litre V8 Vantage with 420 bhp. Now this was quite a lot better resolved than the 4.3-litre Vantage and possessed the wonderful steering tactility we thought only Lotus had.

Handling balance was pretty much in the zone but one couldn't help wondering about having more power. Aston was obviously wondering too and they promptly stuffed their powerful V12 under the hood of the Vantage and produced quite a monster, the V12 Vantage.
