Jack Rix gets behind the wheel of the ultra-exclusive Aston Martin V12 Zagato

The only modern-day Aston Martin rarer than the £1.15million One-77 hypercar, is the stunning V12 Vantage Zagato.

Just 101 will be made – at a cost of £396,000 each. Mechanically unchanged from the standard V12 Vantage, it packs 510bhp and will hit 62mph in 4.2 seconds.

These figures are nothing special sat next to the likes of the Ferrari 458, Mercedes SLS AMG or McLaren 12C but when you see this car in the flesh, it all starts to make sense.

The carbon fibre trim, unique stitching and fixed rear wing set it apart from the standard car – and that's without mentioning the signature grille and bulbous rear end.

News editor, Jack Rix, has been to Aston HQ to find out whether the V12 Vantage Zagato offers a driving experience to justify its price tag, or if it’s nothing more than a pricey bodykit. Click the video to find out.
