Is This The Hottest Aston Martin Ever? The V12 Zagato

Aston Martin has long been revered as the pinnacle of style and sophistication in automaking, so it's no surprise that its newest model may just be the hottest car ever produced. Fifty years after the debut of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, the British automaker is once again partnering with Zagato, the Milan-based design company, to create the limited edition V12 Zagato. An advance of its Vantage model V12 , the new make continues Aston-Martin's longstanding tradition of impeccable craftsmanship. But this speedster is more than just elegant — it's scorching. Notable features include the double bubble roof (an iconic Zagato design developed to accommodate the large helmets of race car drivers), a bonded aluminum platform, a 6.0-liter V12 engine, and a brutal, aggressive look never seen before from this most stylish of British carriage makers.
