Aston Martin, along with coachbuilder Zagato, have worked together on numerous occasions to create many iconic classics, like the DB4 GT Zagato. This time around, the limited-edition Vantage V12 that was one sale a few years ago is going back in to production, with just 38 cars being made that will be sold in pairs with 19 speedsters and 19 coupes. Production for this will be executed by the small-scale Swiss manufacturer R-Reforged, under the watchful eye of Aston Martin.

These cars will be a continuation of the cars offered way back in 2011. The cars look very similar to the original model, except for a set of central locking wheels, reupholstered interiors, and an all-new paint job.

Aero

The Aston uses the same lightweight aluminium and carbon fibre construction, the Coupe shares the original Vantage Zagato's double-bubble roof, while the Speedster gets a pair of flying buttresses behind the seats. Additional aero functions have been added including a front splitter in the bumper. The original car came with a massive mounted rear wing that has been replaced by a deployable rear wing mounted on the rear boot lid.

Drivetrain

The cars will use Aston Martin's naturally-aspirated 6-litre V12 engine with an ECU remap to help the engine produce 600bhp. Customers can choose between an automatic transmission and seven-speed manual gearbox, and all that power will be sent to the rear wheels only.

The cars will be sold as a pair and it is approximately priced at £1.75 million (Rs 16.55 crore, before Indian taxes and duties) for the pair. To put that in perspective, the original Zagato from Aston Martin was priced at £300,000 (Rs 2.83 Crore). So if you have two empty slots in your garage with a flair for some exotic and exclusive Astons, we’d suggest you go right ahead and pick this pair up!
