What is this car?

I saw this at the Midland Game Fair this afternoon, at first I thought it was a Aston Martin Rapide but it's not, then i thought it may be a kit car based on a Nissan (see the Z on the front flank). Now I just don't know! :lol: Can anyone shed some light on this car for me please? :embarrest:

Wish I got a closer look but I was in a hurry to get the car out before the rush! The badges look like Aston ones but its that back end, what you can't see terribly well is that the rear window has two slight bubbles in it, I assume for head room. The rear light cluster looks very familiar too. :confused:

Ok only 100 were made so it's a bit rare, here's what Wiki says...

The Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Zagato is a limited-edition grand tourer made by Aston Martin/Zagato. Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October, 2002, the Zagato was immediately sold out. Only 99 examples were sold to the public, though one extra was produced for the Aston Martin museum.
Like the DB7 on which it is based, the Zagato is powered by a 6.0 L V12 engine and controlled via a 6-speed manual transmission. It has a top speed of 186 mph (299 km/h) and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 4.9 seconds, statistics not entirely dissimilar to Aston's present day DB9.
Unlike the later DB AR1, the Zagato is built on a shortened chassis.
The Vantage Zagato coupe sold for a base price of US$250,000.

Nice to see a car that rare used & not just hermetically sealed in a collection some where.

Cheers,

Loz. :D

YuP! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I would be a bit miffed at blowing 0.25 million on a car that is presumed to be a cougar or jag with a bodykit on it.
