Aston Martin together with their longtime Italian partner for design Zagato are proclaiming their fifth and latest collaborative exhibition vehicle, the Vanquish Zagato Concept, which was ceremonially launched on May 21-22 2016 at the illustrious Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Lake Como, Italy.
The British automotive and Italian design companies have worked together on previous cars over a period of more than 50 years. The Vanquish Zagato Concept continues this combination of Aston Martin's heralded performance car engineering and technology with Zagato's standout aesthetic philosophy.
All of their previous cars, beginning with the legendary 1960 DB4 GT Zagato on to the 2011 V12 Vantage Zagato, have prominently featured the markers of Aston Martin’s evolution in design, and paired these with Zagato’s signature motorsport-inspired style ethos. It is no wonder that their four past collaborative efforts were all characterized as having unique, progressive and pioneering designs.
Appropriately, this brazenly styled concept car is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 uprated to 600 PS engine and is fully equipped for supreme drivability.
