The new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato is a beautiful Grand Tourer and is finally ready to hit the public roads and stun the world.
The Aston Martin Zagato collaboration recently brought forth the Vanquish Zagato at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este held at Lake Como. Aston Martin couldn’t resist the temptation and have started a limited production run of 99 cars for the Vanquish Zagato. Sadly, every single car has already been sold and accounted for. The Vanquish Zagato is a proper Jet Setters car. A comfortable, fast and drop dead gorgeous Grand Tourer with an Aston Martin flair.
The Vanquish Zagato is powered by the same 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 motor Aston Martin supplies in the standard Vanquish. Only in the case of the Zagato, the V12 is producing a higher 592 HP along with tweaks to improve the overall driving dynamics of the engine. The new Zagato should crack the 0-60 kmph sprint in 3.5 secs. A properly brisk car, this Aston. They have also fiddled around with the suspension setup to improve the car’s manoeuverability.
The exterior of the Vanquish Zagato has been designed by the Aston Martin Design team led by Marek Reichman and Andrea Zagato along with his dedicated team that operates out of Milan. The car itself has been developed and engineered at Aston Martin’s headquarters in Gaydon, England. The new bodywork on the car is completely shaped from carbon fibre just like the original concept. The design team have worked on reducing split-lines across the body work by incorporating the use of large one-piece panels. The Vanquish Zagato features the signature Zagato double bubble roof and Z embossed logos across the car. Even the gaping radiator grill features a Z mesh.
The Vanquish Zagato definitely finds inspiration from many existing Aston Martin machines. The wing mirrors have been directly influenced by the One-77 and the sculptured rear end is reminiscent of the DB11’s aerodynamic profile along with the retractable spoiler and rear hatch. We are extremely pleased with the fact that Aston Martin and Zagato have retained most of the interesting details of the concept on the production car.
The production Vanquish will hopefully be showcased at the Goodwood festival of speed. We expect a large parade of enthusiasts drooling over this gorgeous machine. The standard Vanquish is a thing of beauty but the Zagato is pure lust. Arguably the prettiest Jet Setter for the 21st century. Move aside puny Bentley.
