Aston Martin Zagato faces 24hrs Challenge
Aston Martin is putting the final touches to its race preparations in readiness for the toughest 24 hour race of them all – the annual ADAC Nürburgring 24 Hours on 25 and 26 June where a brace of new Aston Martin V12 Zagatos will compete. Joining the Zagatos will be a V8 Vantage GT4.
Aston Martin’s presence at the Nürburgring marks the sixth successive time factory engineers complete a product sign-off test in what has been dubbed ‘the toughest 24 hour race’ under public scrutiny.
Since 2006, the marque has used the race to prove the 4.7 litre engine V8 Vantage, the V12 Vantage, the four-door Rapide, and now, rather more ambitiously, for the first major test of a new concept car – the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. The 39th ADAC Nürburgring 24 Hour race starts at 4pm CET on Saturday 25 June 2011.
