Aston Martin Debuts Vanquish Zagato Speedster, Teases Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster unleashed

With all four cars based upon the Vanquish S, all units of the Zagato are powered by a 600PS naturally-aspirated V12 engine mated to a Touchtronic III transmission.

These cars entered production in secret late past year, and exist in four body styles: a hardtop Coupe, the convertible Volante, the rare Speedster, and the newly-announced Shooting Brake.

Zagato boss Andrea Zagato commented: "Zagato's relationship with Aston Martin began with my grandfather nearly sixty years ago".

The Shooting Brake, meanwhile, follows the current trend for high-performance sports estates with the addition of a larger rear load area.

Aston Martin has already started building the 99 Volante models, all of which have been allocated to buyers already. Joining the coupé and Volante roadster bodystyles are the Speedster and Shooting Brake, announced at the Monterey Car Week in California - where the Volante is also making its world premiere. Aston Martin is also only going to produce 99 Coupes and 99 Volantes, so the limited production numbers for the Speedster and Shooting Brake models aren't that surprising.

They include the Speedster model that has already been revealed and now the Shooting Brake and Volante (convertible) model. But you're not too late for the the stunning Shooting Brake, which is due to enter production in 2018.

As well as spectacular sporting ability, Vanquish Zagato showcases the very best of Aston Martin's bespoke luxury.

The more intriguing Shooting Brake model has yet to be unveiled in full, but a side view render shows an elongated, low-slung glasshouse that flows towards the back of the vehicle, ending with a raked rear windscreen. The wagon will be a two-seater only whilst the elongated roofline will bear the hallmark Zagato double-bubble design. The extended roof of the concept sketch bears the iconic Zagato double-bubble surfacing complete with glass inlays to let light flood into the cockpit.

Power comes from the same V12 you'll find in the Vanquish Zagato Volante and Coupe. "Well, many of our customers want different things", he said in a statement. "And yes, some of them have ordered one of each". We've simply taken things a few steps further.

"There's always an over-demand from our clients and patrons".

"We're creating collectibles: the future concours cars".
