Take a good look at this sweet ride, ’cause I doubt you’ll ever see one up close. If you do, you’re one lucky bastard! The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is one of the rarest Aston Martin vehicles ever, considering only 150 units will be built. And, you can’t really ignore that 330,000 pounds price tag, but it’s sad to know that production has been paused around the 65 unit mark.
The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is powered by Aston’s famous 6.0-liter V12 engine, which outputs 510 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. But, as always, some people are to picky for their own good, which is why the owner of the following V12 Zagato – located in the United States – wanted a bit more from this rare jewel so they headed off to the Velocity Automotive Performance garage.
Please note that this is one of just two Aston Martin V12 Zagato beauties imported into the United States. The Aston received the Velocity full V12 Power Pack, comprised of a new exhaust manifolds and catalysts made from Formula 1 grade Inconel 625, not ot mention the rear exhaust silencer made from lightweight titanium, performance air filters and proprietary ECU tuning. All of that work adds up to 45 hp and 40 lb-ft of torque more than the standard car. Since the lightweight components used include those sweet PUR wheels, the car weighs a 100 pounds less than a standard V12 Zagato which translates into more speed. We just can’t get enough of that, right?
