Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato makes its debut with a total of four variations including the Speedster and the Shooting Brake trims. As part of the limited edition model, the company will only produce 28 units of the Speedster and 99 examples of the Shooting Brake, alongside the 99 Coupes and another 99 examples of the Volante.
By looking at the Speedster, it seems more aggressive than the Volante with the nacelle found behind the seats. A lot of the body panels are made of carbon fiber to keep the weight down. The nacelle might remind you of Zagato's double-bubble roof that had been twisted. Sadly, all these are very limited, and it is too late if you still plan to get one as they have all been sold out already, and deliveries will begin in 2018. Don't you think that Aston Martin should have built more examples considering the fact that they have already mastered automotive styling?
There are not a lot of photos and details regarding the Shooting Brake variant, but this one tells us that it has an extended roof that goes all the way to the tail. Supposedly, it features double-bubble contour and glass inlays that naturally let the light in the cockpit. On the inside, it will be given a bronze finish on the interior controls and on the upholstery. The two-seater also gets a tailored luggage set mounted at the back, but owners can have access to it from the tailgate. The Shooting Brake will only be hitting the production line in 2018.
The Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, Marek Reichman, was asked on why they have built a family of Zagatos. Apparently, it is because their customers want variants; some prefer a coupe while others like something more unique or sportier like the Speedster. He also divulged that there are some customers who had ordered one of each variant.
The base of the Zagatos would be the Vanquish S. And all of them come with a naturally aspirated 6.0 liter V12 that yields 580 horsepower (433 kilowatts). This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Aston Martin only announced that there will be a Speedster and a Shooting Brake variant of the Vanquish Zagato Volante when the Coupe variant made its debut at the Monterey Car Week.
Personally, I find the Shooting Brake variant pretty cool with the stretched roof. We would like to hear your thoughts on the two new variants of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante. Would you cop them, or would you rather stick to the coupe variant?
