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

The UK-based coachbuilder Coventry Prototype Panels (otherwise known as CPP) has been on a buying spree, recently snatching up Bowler and the exotic car arm of Spyker. Now comes word that the company – owned by Vladamir Antonov – has added another automotive company to its growing portoflio. Rumor has it that CPP just purchased Italian design house Zagato.

If that name doesn't ring a bell, you need to brush up on your super-sexy vehicle design knowledge. Zagato is the firm responsible for some of the most beautiful cars in the galaxy. Now, Antonov has taken them under his wing (and wallet). We're still waiting on an official announcement regarding the purchase of Zagato, but with Antonov's Convers Group involved, anything is possible.

      Can't wait to see Bowler chassis and suspension work on a Zagato designed body with spyker interior and engine. Finaly it makes sense why the SUV was created! I just hope this guy injects money into these companies and lets them shine for what they are, not interfere with what the public wants(see toyota camry) and build cars that suit each companies original intentions

      To be fair, they've also produced some of the weirdest. Many of their designs throughout the years have taken an existing design, made it a little melty looking, then called it new.

      If Zagato doesn't ring a bell then you shouldn't be on this site.
