Continuing the 100th year anniversary for a little longer, Zagato have worked their magic on Aston Martin underpinnings with the V12 Vantage Zagato Heritage Twins by R-Reforged. While this is a bit of a mouthful, the type name does offer an accurate description of the car or, more precisely cars, in question. They are built on the final V12 Vantage chassis by Swiss specialist manufacturer R-Reforged using a Zagato design and a more powerful 600 bhp engine. The 'Twins' is a reference to the fact that customers can only buy the new cars as a pair; a Coupé and a Speedster. As a nod to the original DB4 GT Zagato, production of the Heritage Twins will be limited to just 19 pairs, so 38 cars in total.
To mark the occasion, we have taken a detailed look at the very first DB4 GT Zagato. Shown at the Earl's Court Motor Show in 1960, it made its competition debut at Goodwood on Easter Monday 1961 with Stirling Moss behind the wheel. In 1962, it was also raced at Le Mans but a piston failure brought an early end to the race. Chassis DB4GT/0200/R has more recently been beautifully restored and has been raced during the Goodwood Revival at select occasions.
