Aston Martin DB7 Zagato

The Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Zagato is a limited-edition grand tourer made by Aston Martin/Zagato. Introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2002 and later shown at the Paris Motor Show in October 2002, the Zagato was immediately sold out. Only 99 examples were sold to the public, though one extra was produced for the Aston Martin museum.

Like the DB7 Vantage on which it is based, the Zagato is powered by a 6.0 L V12 engine and controlled via a 6-speed manual transmission. It has a top speed of 186 mph (299 km/h) and a 0–60 mph acceleration time of 4.9 seconds.

Unlike the later DB AR1, the Zagato is built on a shortened chassis.
