Price Revealed For Aston Zagato


Aston Martin seems set to pitch (possibly predictably) its dramatically styled new V12 Zagato pretty much right at the top of its range, with a price tag of £330k pencilled in.

According to Dutch site Autoweek.nl, who broke the story, Aston Martin will also keep its collaboration with the Italian styling house limited to 150 units.

Which is probably a sensible thing, given that such a price tag is near-on twice as much as a DBS, the next rung down on the Aston Martin ladder, and two-and-a-half times what it'll cost you to get into a V12 Vantage - the car on which the Zagato is based. It also leaves only the super-exclusive One-77 above it in both rarity and cost.

And if you're wondering whether production plans for the new Aston Martin are officially official, so to speak, just take a look at Aston's own website, and you'll find the Zagato nestling proudly in the company's official product portfolio...

So, is the price of a decent detached house worth it for a re-bodied Vantage? That's a question which we'll leave you - and those thinking about actually buying one (the Aston, not a detached house) - to decide...

    Can't afford the price, but this car looks the badgers nadgers. Want.

    2.5 times the price of V12 Vantage. Ouch! Still, if they sell at 150 then one can argue the price isn't too high. I won't be one of the buyers but do think the car looks good.

    They'll be the comments on price etc etc

    That's not the point

    Aston is a dreary company reproducing the same underpinnings of a car in many similar skins .... A shame ... They need to wake up

    Ferrari,lambo and jag can do it .... Lotus is 'upgrading' so why not.

    Shame

    Why didn't they just use this design for the next model of DB9? That way they'd have evolved it just like the 911 has over the years. The problem they have created for themselves is that now have to come up with something else, better than this for the next facelift - but then if they do achieve that then these 150 cars will depreciate rather fast!

    I see your point but actually I think this is the pretiest Aston made in years and whilst it shares some styling elements in common with other Astons I think it is intended more to reflect old Zagato styling.

    I love it and lets be honest if you can afford to buy any Zagato the price will never worry you, if you have to ask you can't afford it.
