Zagato Aston Martin V12 arrives at the Nurburgring

Aston Martin V12Saturday before the start of the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the two Aston Martin V12 Zagato involved in the race started testing today.

Last May, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato has made a very noticeable first official Concours d’Elegance of the Villa d’Este. Quickly, we learned that a racing version would be launched. Pictures had already been announced, but not in action on the track. It is now the case. And for good reason, since two Aston Martin V12 Zagato will participate this weekend at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

So the famous German circuit that both cars were caught in the throes of today’s tests. Both models benefit from a 6.0 liter V12 improvement over the standard version (530 hp against 510 hp). The first, with the No. 3 and nicknamed “Zag” is red and will be particularly driven by the owner of the trademark, Ulrich Bez Himself. The second, bringing the 5 and nicknamed “Zig” is itself green. This is Chris Porritt, the chief engineer of the One-77, and Oliver Mathai, a professional racing driver, which will include the controls of the Aston Martin.

For clarification, the two race cars will sport a logo on their roof “Heart for Japan,” a sign of brand support to victims of the tsunami of March 11 in Japan. We remember that in late May, Ulrich Bez had already collected 110,000 euros for a Japanese association with the sale of its fast.Aston Martin V12
