Aston Martin confirms US debut of two new models

Posted on 22 Aug 2011 by The Manufacturer

The internationally renowned manufacturer of luxury cars, Aston Martin, has announced the US debut of two new models: the One-77 and the V12 Zagato.

The British car manufacturer is to attend the famous automotive week in Monterey in California from August 17-21 and partake in a series of events to show off the new cars. Aston Martin will kick off the celebrations on Wednesday August 17 at McCall’s Motorworks Revival, where the V12 Zagato will make its American debut.

The Aston Martin V12 Zagato was originally unveiled as a concept car at the Villa D’Este Concours in Italy earlier this year, where the car won the award for Design in the Concepts and Prototypes class. Weeks later, the car went on to complete the 39th ADAC Nürburgring 24 hour race in Germany.

Last month, following intense interest from customers, the company confirmed a strictly limited production run of the V12 Zagato which is due to commence in summer 2012.

“We are very excited about the program this year including the debut of the V12 Zagato, and we look forward to welcoming current owners, new customers and automotive enthusiasts to share our celebrations,” said Julian Jenkins, vice president of Aston Martin in the Americas.
