First hint, the care was first unveiled as a concept car earlier this year. Because of the overwhelming positive response the car will be released in the summer of 2012 in limited road and race car edition.
It’s a coupe that has a fancy price tag starting at $525,000. This sport car offers aggressive yet graceful curves courtesy of a handcrafted bonded aluminum body, and features a front mid-mounted 6.0L V12 engine pumping out 510 hp at 6,500 rpm and 420 lb-ft of torque at 5,750 rpm, rear wheel drive, a steel roll cage, a six-speed gearbox with auto-shift and select shift manual modes, menacing LED taillights, distinct vents and the double bubble roof (originally meant to allow extra headroom for racer’s bulky helmets). Drive is sent through a six-speed sequential manual gearbox to the rear wheels. This speedy coupe claims to hit 62 mph in 4.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 190 mph.
Last chance to guess: It is the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. And if you are lucky enough to be at Beach Concours d’Elegance automotive week in Monterey, Cal. you will be able to see it first hand when it debuts in the U.S. for the very first time. Aston Martin launch the American debut of the One-77 and V12 Zagato in Monterey from August 17-21, 2011.
“Guests will be given the rare opportunity to test drive our latest model range, including the new Virage and Vantage S, as well as the four-door Rapide” commented Julian Jenkins, Vice President Aston Martin the Americas. “We are very excited about the program this year including the debut of the V12 Zagato, and we look forward to welcoming current owners, new customers and automotive enthusiasts to share our celebrations at The Aston Martin Estate.”
