Aston Martin Nurburgring 24 Hours

Both Aston Martin V12 Zagato cars entered into the weekend’s Nurburgring 24-hour race survived, maintaining Aston’s 100 per cent finish record at the race.

Zig and Zag, as the cars are nicknamed, covered more than 230 laps between them for a total of 3,700 miles (5,920km) of The Green Hell, the Nurburgring Nordschleife, cheered on by 200,000 spectators.

Aston Martin number 5 (Zig, the red car) V12 Zagato took fifth place in the SP8 class with sister car Zag (green, number 3) V12 Zagato finishing sixth.  In the SP10 class, a factory-backed V8 Vantage N24 raced to fifth place.

The car has been built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic DB4GT Zagato.  Based on the V12 Vantage, it features handcrafted aluminium body and packs a 6.0 litre V12 engine with 510bhp and 570Nm of torque.  A very limited production run is expected.
