Jumping the gun on its official public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Aston Martin has released the first official photos of the production version of its V12 Zagato supercar that premiered last year as a prototype at concours events from Villa d'Este to Pebble Beach. The basics: It's a super-lightweight car made mostly of aluminum and carbon fiber, and it's going to cost a lot of money. However, priced at £330,000 in the U.K., or just over $524,000 at current exchange rates, each of the 150 examples slated for production will take an estimated 2,000 man hours to build, which works out to just $260 per hour. On a hourly basis, that's actually cheaper than the Ford Fusion, which, let's face it, could be this car's second cousin in the looks department.
OK, maybe not so much.
