Aston Martin Zagato; a partnership renowned for creating wonderfully elegant vehicles. First came the incredible Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupe, then the equally stunning Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante. The magnificent duo has now evolved into an exquisite quartet; introducing the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake.
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster
Out of the four body styles, the Zagato Speedster happens to be the rarest Vanquish Zagato body style. The production run will only cater for a total of 28 Speedster variants. Incidentally, all other variations will have a production run of 99 cars. In total, 325 Zagato Vanquish models will be created. Unsurprisingly, all 28 of Aston Martin’s Vanquish Zagato Speedster have already been sold; with production already started, the cars will be delivered throughout 2018.
Each model in the line-up in based upon the Vanquish S, therefore includes a glorious 5.0-litre V12 naturally-aspirated engine, complete with 600PS (592bhp) – which is 27bhp more than a standard Aston Martin Vanquish. However, the body is rather unique. This is thanks to striking ‘Speed Humps’ that sit behind the seats as part of the Speedster body style – which represent the Zagato ‘double bubble’ roof design, familiar with vintage racing cars which Zagato created. Body panels are also crafted from lightweight, ultra-strong carbonfibre.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Speedster will be revealed at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California.
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
The Shooting Brake is final Zagato Vanquish to complete the quartet. As mentioned, 99 examples will be available to lucky buyers. The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is a ‘strict two-seater’, but it’s also an incredibly practical Grand Tourer. Like the Speedster, the Shooting Brake also incorporates the Zagato ‘double-bubble’ into its extended body.
Despite more weight, due to the elongated body, the Shooting Brake will only be slightly slower to 60mph than its Zagato Vanquish siblings. It will also be able to achieve a top speed of almost 200mph. Interestingly, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake will not join the Speedster at Pebble Beach, and instead be showcased to the public at a later date.
Take a look at the gallery, and consider which you would have.
