A very rare encounter indeed! Footage from the 2012 Wilton House Event in August. This was the 2nd UK Premiere of the 2013 Vanquish, previously codenamed project AM310. It will be replacing the DBS in Aston's line up next year. Also present was the first homologated V12 Vantage Zagato. This Aston was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the DB4 GT Zagato. Introduced in Lake Como, Italy at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este on 21 May 2011, the Zagato was awarded with the competition's "Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes" which has also been won by the One-77 in 2009. Like the Aston Martin V12 Vantage on which it is based, the V12 Zagato is powered by a 6.0 L V12 engine with 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque. The production car (that will be limited to just 150 examples) has several styling differences compared to the original prototype, (the red one that can be seen on Youtube): the front bumper and bonnet have significant styling differences, and I must say that I much prefer the look of it now, don't you think?
