Aston Martin V12 Zagato Unveiling in Kuwait

I was invited By Hackett Kuwait & Concours D'elegance for the world first premier unveiling of the astonishing Aston Martin V12 Zagato.

First, they had all the Aston Martin range on display.

Shaikha Salwa Al-Sabah Ballroom was decorated for this event. Very nicely done.


Aston Martin Z Dinner! Looks cool.



Aston Martin UK Chief Commercial Officer introduced the car, after a short video of the Company's history in racing and car making.


The moment everybody was waiting for.. The smoke


And the Zagato comes out to mark the 50th year of partnership between Aston Martin & Zagato since the first car was designed DB4 GT Zagato that raced back in the 60s.


The big grille in the front, is so mean to be hated! Amazing creation by Zagato.
The whole body is made from light aluminum and feature the signature of the Zagato Design Firm, which is the double bubble roof


The side profile of the car, looks better than Jennifer Lopez in Bikini!
very short front and rear overhang.


Everything in the car is shared with the Vantage S, the sportiest fastest production Aston on sale today, producing 510Bhp to the rear wheels. with an exceptional exhaust note. Not like the old racing I posted about earlier. but a more civilized one.


A normal car would take 200 hours to build, this V12 Zagato needs 2000 hours since every piece is made by hand and in a very limited numbers. Limited to 150 cars worldwide.


The car will go for sale for about 175.000 KD

Enjoy!
