Aston Martin announced that it would take two new Aston Martin V12 Zagato units for a short race at the Nurburgring 24 hour endurance race assault later this month. The first one will be headed by the Aston’s CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, the other by Chris Porritt.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato endurance race car won the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes at its first public appearance at the Villa D’Este Concours. The show car was then transformed into the number 3 race car, nicknamed ‘Zag’ (red) and will be piloted in the 24 hour race by Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, the company’s Nurburgring Test Centre Director.

A green V12 Zagato (nicknamed ‘Zig’) – car number 5 for the race – was prepared by the small team based at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire. Zig will be driven by Aston Martin One-77 Chief Engineer Chris Porritt, experienced sports car driver Oliver Mathai, automotive journalist Richard Meaden and experienced amateur racer Peter Cate.

Joining the Zagatos will be a V8 Vantage GT4 affectionately nicknamed ‘Smurf’ (now orange but formally blue) which will be driven by Aston Martin Racing works driver, Darren Turner, journalist and experienced 24 hour driver, Shinichi Katsura, Australian racer Rob Thomson and seasoned Nürburgring pilot Jurgen Stumpf.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato endurance race car is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 engine, it produces 510 horsepower and a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. This engine is mated to a six-speed automated manual gearbox with auto shift manual/select shift manual. So the 0-100km/h time is under 4.0 seconds.

The rear-wheel-drive model features an all round independent double wishbone with fully adjustable Multimatic DSSV dampers. The Aston Martin V12 Zagato will appear in the form of an endurance race car to compete at the Nurburgring 24 hour race.
