Aston Martin celebrative, 100 years of Zagato: for the first time without veils

Aston Martin celebrative, 100 years of Zagato: for the first time without veils
Finally, after the announcement arrived in early 2020, R-Reforger has unveiled - for the first time ever - one of the pairs of prototypes designed for the celebration of Zagato's 100th anniversary. The first two concept cars, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS - in coupé and speedster versions - will join the already incredible Zagato collection.

The celebratory Aston Martins have been assembled by hand thanks to the skill of 12 craftsmen which, over the course of 16 weeks, brought the two concept cars to life at R-Reforged's Warwick plant in the UK. The first two examples made are part of a project that involves the construction of 19 pairs of cars that can be bought by wealthy customers.

The bodywork of the new cars of the Italian company, developed on the basis of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage Zagato from 2011, was made using only carbon fiber. As for the other aspects of the design, on the front there is an innovative splitter and the presence of particularly pronounced mudguards.

The rear part is instead characterized by a more "elongated" tail and a wing mobile, thanks to which you will have greater stability when higher speeds are reached. However, despite these changes, the shapes that have always distinguished the iconic Aston Martin model have not been distorted. The elegant and at the same time captivating look is highlighted by the presence of 19-inch APP Tech alloy wheels.

Designed to optimize aerodynamics in order to increase performance, other important technical aspects concerning the engine and set-up have not been neglected. In fact, the 5.9-liter V12 engine will be able to deliver 80 hp more than the original - thanks to an aluminum air intake and titanium exhaust - thus producing almost 600 hp. The set-up of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS by R-Reforged will be lower by 10 mm.

The collection destined for the Zagato family will be exhibited in the Aston Martin dealership in St. Gallen in Switzerland and will subsequently begin a tour in the US and Europe.
