Aston Martin V12

Aston Martin is preparing to face the 24 Hours Nürburgring in 2011 with two copies of the V12 Vantage Zagato. The cars were nicknamed Zig (green) and Zag (red and white). The first will be on the track by Chris Porritt (chief engineer of Project One-77), Oliver Mathai, Richard Meaden and Pter Cate, while the second will be driven by Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez himself accompanied by Wolfgang Schuhbauer, Horst Von Saurma and Matthew Marsh.

The competition takes place this weekend, marking the sixth consecutive team official Aston Martin, which decided to take this important opportunity to test new models very similar to standard, as has been the case with the V8 Vantage, Vantage and V12 Rapide.

The new V12 Vantage Zagato, presented at the Concours d'Elegance Villa d'Este in its competition, a production model born limited edition which will delight enthusiasts and collectors. The new sports model that combines the historic English brand to the Italian design house is expected to largely meet their expectations.
