When the Aston Martin V12 Zagato debuted at the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance in March, the British luxury marque announced a production run of 150 Zagato units. Now, however, Aston Martin have scaled back on production plans to just 101 examples.
Rumours are of slow demand for the 380 kW limited edition supercar, but Aston says a longer than expected build cycle is to blame. “Given the hand-built nature of the V12 Zagato, the 2 000 hours required to sculpt each car and our desire to ensure its exclusivity, we have taken the decision to limit the total build to 101 units worldwide”, said Marcel Fabris, Aston Martin’s Asia/Pacific Marketing and Communications Manager.
History often repeats itself and, in the case of limited-edition cars from Italian design house, Zagato, the shrinking production numbers bode well for those who’ve already placed a deposit for the £396 000 supercar.
