Aston Martin Line Up for Salon Privé 2012 to Include One-77 Cycle
British sport car maker Aston Martin has confirmed its line-up for the Salon Privé which runs from 5 to 7 September at West London’s Syon Park.
The line-up will feature the V12 Zagato, One-77 hypercar, new Vanquish super GT, Rapide four-door sports car and a show debut of the One-77 Cycle. Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez will also sit on the judging panel of the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance at Salon Privé.
With a price tag of £400,000, the limited edition V12 Zagato is set to become one of the most exclusive sports cars in the world. Designed and built at the company’s Warwickshire headquarters, the V12 Zagato takes 2,000 man hours to build, with 100 of these hours spent on the paint alone. Just 101 examples of the Zagato will be built, with production starting later in 2012.
Among the most expensive cars exhibited at Salon Privé this year will be the £1.2 million Aston Martin One-77. Powered by a 7.3-litre V12 engine, certified at 750bhp and 750Nm of torque – it is the most powerful naturally aspirated car in the world with only 77 examples built.
Next up is the new 183 mph 6.0-litre V12 Vanquish. Cloaked in a skin of carbon fibre, this vehicle takes many design cues from the One-77 and is priced at £189,995.
Aston Martin’s Rapide four-door luxury saloon will also be on display.
Continuing the Aston Martin theme this year is a new exhibitor at Salon Privé, with Factor Bikes showcasing its limited edition £25,000 One-77 Cycle.
Designed and manufactured by hand in England, the One-77 Cycle has been conceived to align with the One-77 hypercar.
Salon Privé’s David Bagley said: “Continuing 2012’s best of British celebration we are delighted to see Aston Martin back at Salon Privé in 2012. With the One-77 now sold out, only three V12 Zagato’s currently in the world and the exclusive bicycle making its show debut there really are some rare experiences for visitors to Salon Privé this year.”
