Aston Martin V12 Zagato – Click above for high-res image gallery

Few collaborations have set the presses and Intertubes alight quite like the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. Rekindling a five-decade-old partnership, the British purveyor of luxury GTs and the Italian design house unveiled their latest collaboration on the shores of Lake Como to rave reviews. And keen to show it's not just a pretty face, Aston Martin then took the beauty-and-the-beast machine to the Nürburgring to race.

Just the other day, we brought you news of Aston's apparently inadvertent (or decidedly low-key) confirmation that the V12 Zagato would reach the market, however limited in production. Now, reports indicate just how few will be built – and how expensive they'll be.

According to Dutch publication AutoWeek.nl, Aston will build only 150 examples of the V12 Zagato, each with a price tag of £330,000. If accurate, that would place the Zagato at nearly twice the purchase price of the DBS, and about two and a half times as expensive as the V12 Vantage on which it's based.

By either account – direct conversion or relative price from Aston's U.S. line-up – that comes out to about $500,000 based on current conversion rates. Whether the rare beauty of the Zagato is worth a pair of top-of-the-line production Astons is open for debate, but we have no doubt Gaydon will have little trouble selling every last one.

      Want it! Ahh drool. Way better than a Datsun 370. Come on. LFA is very sweet but I like the look of this more. I'd get it a few years down the road second hand. Hope the suspension improves with this model...

        Redundancy...check Get over it. This car makes the GTR look like a wannabe boy racer even if there are borrowed themes.

        Anybody who finds even a passing resemblance to the GTR needs to get their head examined. "Downward sloping swept back roof line...check"...how idiotic damn near every sports car has a downward sloping roofline.

      Still this is an overpriced slow exotic. Get the LFA instead.

      They definetely took some of the design cues from a Nissan GTR. Look at the fenders. the rear windows. the way it slopes down and the rear wheel well looks like a 370Z. This car is definely a Nissan design. The GTR will have this car for breakfast and it will be more reliable at that.
