First look at the Aston Martin V12 Zagato


No, Takahashi did not just Photoshop an Aston Martin Vantage with a Nissan GT-R. But it kinda looks that way, eh?

Aston Martin released the first official photos of its V12 Zagato ahead of the car’s official unveiling tomorrow at the Villa D’Este Concours in Lake Como, Italy.
