James Bond’s car brand of choice isn’t going to lift its pedal-to-the-metal attitude anytime soon. Based on the Vanquish S, Aston Martin, together with renowned Italian designer and coachbuilder Zagato, introduces three new renditions of last year’s Vanquish Zagato Coupé to complete its quartet.
The Vanquish Zagato Volante is a conservative convertible version of the Coupé, while the other two represent two ends of the collection; the Speedster and Shooting Brake.
The Shooting Brake is a celebration of the GT spirit in a two-seater configuration. Light floods the interior from the signature double-bubble glass roof that stretches all the way to the rear cabin and furnished with tailored luggage set; a practical choice for those wanting more space. On the other hand, the Speedster is a dedicated open-top sports car with the signature double-bubble roof represented by two streamlined cowls located behind the seats.
The quartet of Vanquish Zagatos adheres to full carbon-fibre body panels, unmistakable Aston Martin-shaped headlights, Vulcan-inspired taillights, with a front grille completed with repetitive Z pattern that personifies Zagato. All powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 that outputs 600PS. A total of 325 cars will be made: 99 Coupé, 99 Volante, 99 Shooting Brake, 28 Speedster, all sold out.
