Aston Martin introduced the anniversary version of the model VantageApril 20, 2019
Exactly 100 years ago, the Italian company Zagato was created, which is engaged in the creation of its own cars, as well as automotive design projects. British brand Aston Martin, which continues to cooperate with this company, has released anniversary versions of the Vantage model.
Zagato is a well-known company in Milan, Italy, which specializes in the production of car bodies for European brands. Its founder, Ugo Zagato, founded the company in 1919.
Among the largest customers studio Zagato – British brand Aston Martin. In the distant 1950s, the British automaker used the Zagato bodywork in GT racing. In 1960, the first Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was introduced – the DB4 GT bodywork, which was improved by the Zagato guys. Since then, these two brands have been working together to create wonderful machines – from the latest creations, the limited Vanquish Family Zagato collection and the DBZ Centenary collection.
To celebrate the collaboration with the Italian company, Aston Martin releases a special version of its car – this is Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage Twins.
This car will be the first project of the new R-Reforged brand, which has an exclusive license from Aston Martin. R-Reforged Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage Twins will be released in a coupe and speedster (2-seater open-top sports car, without side windows). A total of 19 coupes and 19 speedsters will be produced to order.
“Aston Martin V12 Zagato Heritage Twins from R-Reforged is an exceptional tribute to our own heritage. They are the most beautiful models of Zagato, created in the style of a retro-future (neoclassic) that have ever been made. They combine the best of the two automotive worlds, ”said Dr. Andrea Zagato, CEO of Zagato Milano.
