Spyker has announced that the production of the C12 Zagato, the youngest model of the Dutch manufacturer of exclusive sport cars, is postponed.
As Spyker’s chairman said in an interview they want to give priority to the production of other models.
The C12 Zagato was revealed in March at Geneva Motor Show. And as Spyker reported, the car will be limited to only 24 units and will be priced at 495.000 euro. The première of this ultra-exclusive version of the C12 range celebrated Spyker’s entry into the world of Formula One and marked the first integration of design elements and styling cues from the Spyker F8-VII Formula One car into the Spyker road car range.
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 Bubble, 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).
