Luxury supercar is the fitting category here, for the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato—it is hard to imagine an automobile more lavishly engineered and outfitted. Under the hood, a monstrous 6.0-liter V12 engine with 510 horsepower, 420 pound-feet of torque, and six-speed manual transmission. And then, the build, which takes some 2,000 painstaking manhours to complete. The body is hand-crafted aluminum and carbon fiber. The hand-stitched interior requires seven Bridge of Weir fine Scottish leather hides. The paint alone, with four custom colours—Scintilla Silver, Alloro Green, Alba Blue, Diavolo Red—takes 100 hours to complete.. The V12 Zagato concept version appeared a year ago; the production model, strictly limited to 150, debuts at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The price to approach perfection: UK £330,000—about US $522,000 at current exchange.
