AF Racing Group
Emotion, passion, vision – these are the qualities that set the AF Racing Group apart from other brands. AF Racing Group’s racing division, R-Motorsport is predominantly engaging in international GT competitions where the team successfully runs Aston Martin Vantage race cars. R-Motorsport is one of the four “R” brands of the R-Universe together with R-Experience, R-Reforged and R-Service. In addition to its ever-growing presence in motorsport, the Swiss company is also involved in automotive manufacturing. Along with Aston Martin Lagonda and Red Bull Advanced Technologies the AF Racing Group is one of the three strategic partners of the prestigious Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar project. Aston Martin St Gallen, the only exclusive Aston Martin dealership in Switzerland, is also affiliated with the AF Racing Group. The four “R” brands encompass the company’s concept of what the luxury automotive sector should represent by always ensuring an extraordinary customer experience. R-Reforged is focusing on the production of exclusive and luxurious sportscars whilst also responding to a customer demand for bespoke, limited production vehicles with a purchase experience unlike any other. The first project ever announced by R- Reforged was the Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage TWINS in 2019. R-Reforged’s second project, the Aston Martin Vanquish 25 by CALLUM, announced shortly after, also enters production this year. R-Experience puts the customer in the center of all the activities managed by the R-Universe brands. R-Experience’s showcase projects are the exclusive R-Motorsport hospitality experience at race venues around the world and the restaurant 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA which is located in the heart of Zurich. The restaurant’s chef, Thomas Bissegger, was awarded his first Michelin star in early 2020.
Zagato Milano History
Zagato, the Milanese coach building Atelier and legendary design signature, in its century-long history has created some of the most beautiful and remarkable cars of all time; and always very successful in motorsport. Started by Ugo Zagato on 19 April 1919, the company is still independent and led by the third generation of the founding family. In a hundred years of uninterrupted activity, Zagato has produced in total more than 440 models, mostly 2 seat and 2 door coupés and spiders, in association with 44 different automotive brands. Following first the functionalist and then the rationalist philosophy with the concept of 'essential beauty', Zagato's strength through the years has been that of its consistency. The partnership of the Milanese Atelier with Aston Martin is one of the longest and most successful, as it started in 1960 with the DB4 GTZ, a vehicle which is highly valued by collectors today. Today, Zagato is a Total Design Studio, whose activities extend beyond the automotive field to Transportation, New Mobility, Product and Industrial design sectors.
