2013 Aston Martin V12 Zagato Details

After its Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este debut and Nurburgring toilings, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato is making its way toward production. Aston took one big step last week in providing a few extra details on the upcoming limited edition coupe.

The V12 Zagato will enter production next year as a 2013 model with the first deliveries scheduled for the summer. Only 150 lucky buyers will get the chance to cough up a big chunk of coin for the hand-crafted sports coupe. The car is priced at 330,000 pounds (around $540K) and, according to Inside Line, prices may run as high as $650,000 in the U.K., thanks to local taxes.

The V12 Zagato was designed to celebrate the 50-year working relationship between Aston and Zagato. It is built on an aluminum platform and features a hand-built body made from carbon fiber and aluminum panels. It borrows the V12 Vantage's 510-hp 6.0-liter V12. Unique styling elements include the double-bubble roof and redesigned rear fascia. Basically, it's a fancier, limited edition Vantage V12 for three times the price.

Aston Martin revealed the first pictures of the production model. Rather than the bright orange of the original concept or the bright aqua of the race-spec Zagato, Aston went with understated grey. The car features a large rear wing similar to the one seen on the Nurburgring edition.

The production model will make an appearance at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show alongside two V12 Zagato racers, whimsically named 'Zig' and 'Zag'. Zig will be dressed up in full racing garb, while Zag will be more reminiscent of the road-going Zagato.

Frankfurt opens to media on September 13.
