Spyker C12 Zagato

With the F1 team part of the Spyker Group it was decided that the C12 Zagato should embody as many of the Formula 1 design cues as practically possible so as to set a new design vision for future Spyker road car models

Spyker C12 Zagato: the vehicle

 

The Spyker C12 Zagato is an all aluminium rear wheel drive sports car, based on the Spyker C12

Spyder. The C12 is powered by the 6.0 liter, 12 cylinder, 500 bph W12 engine from Volkswagen AG

and accelerates from 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.8 seconds. The Spyker C12 Zagato is equipped with a

six-speed manual or automatic gear box with F1 style shifting, Chronoswiss instruments and a Zagato

designed full leather interior with brushed aluminium instrument panel. The C12 Zagato has an

aluminium body with stainless steel roof rails and has many F1 derived design details such as an F1

nose, air scoop, chimneys, mirrors, rain light, fuel flap and diffuser. It has a panoramic roof that

features the Double Bubbl e, a typical Zagato style element. The Spyker C12 Zagato has a length of

4.5 m, a width of 2.02 m excluding mirrors, a height of 1.25 m and weighs 1480 kg. The fuel tank

capacity is 70 litres (15.4 gallons). Top speed is 310 km/h (193 mph).

“The Spyker and Zagato Atelier brands perfectly align because of their common aeronautical origins

and because of the shared passion of Victor Muller and myself for sports cars” states Andrea Zagato.

“Nevertheless Victor, before starting this extraordinary adventure with Spyker, was a Zagato collector

owning cars like the Flaminia SS and TZ. Together with our neo-classical approach, this Spyker C12

Zagato shows the capabilities of Zagato Atelier for innovative and non conventional solutions.”

Norihiko Harada, designer of the new Spyker C12 Zagato, adds: “All Spyker cars have their own very

unique style: the aeronautical retrospective style co-exists with craftsmanship and elegance. The new

Zagato body becomes even more unique, aggressive and sensual at the same time. It features a new

double bubble panoramic roof , F1 influenced nose and air intakes, chimney and a “coda tronca”, the

typical Zagato cut off tail end.

Maintaining Spyker's styling philosophy, Zagato design put all these elements together and created an

extremely stimulating example of contemporary exotic high performance sports car by using typical

modern Zagato lines which started from the Raptor Zagato in 1996.”

The Spyker C12 Zagato will retail for EUR 495,000 (excluding any taxes, ex factory).
