Detailed History
The example that we are delighted to be able to offer for sale is a 1986 matching numbers car, still presented in its original colour scheme of Lightning Silver with a Burgundy trim. With only 50 cars being produced, this being number 18, the V8 Zagato is an incredibly rare and desirable car that would make the perfect addition to any classic car collection. Of the 50 'production' cars built, only 27 of these were right-hand drive manual transmission models, much like the one that we are offering here.

Questions were asked wondering whether a V8 Zagato “could ever happen” and as not too much of a surprise, discussions by Victor Gauntlett and Peter Livanos were had with Elio and Gianna Zagato at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1984. A year later, the first production two seater since the DB4 GT was announced; with a limited run of just 50 cars, the Vantage Zagato was launched in 1985 at the Geneva Motor Show.
