Aston Martin Unveils The Vanquish Zagato Speedster And Shooting Brake

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster & Shooting Brake models confirmed

Following a series of spy photos of the Zagato Speedster caught running the Nurburgring and numerous B-roads in Germany, Zagato and Aston Martin have finally revealed the group's latest stunning creation. But it's a hobby that's set to get even more expensive with Aston Martin's announcement that it will be producing not one, but two more Zagato versions of the Vanquish: a speedster and a shooting brake, which will join the coupe and the Volante roadster that the company has already produced.

Aston Martin has released the first pictures of the Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake.

Aston's Speedster will share the same mechanical underpinnings as the other Zagatos, with a 592bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine and a bespoke "Zagato" suspension set-up.

Deliveries have already started on the Volante and Coupe, while the Speedster and Shooting Brake will enter production in 2018.


The fourth new Zagato - a two-seat Shooting Brake - still remains somewhat under wraps, though Aston has provided a rendering that definitely whets the appetite.

Crucially, however, we understand that not all the 99 Brakes to be built have been pre-sold - so if you're desperate for a Zagato in your garage, this could just be your opportunity. "The sculptural roof culminates in a powered tailgate that opens onto a luxuriously trimmed rear cabin area...and is a fitting complement to the Coupe, Volante, and Speedster".

Aston Martin's chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, said: "We haven't released Zagato models as a family before, at least not in this way, but the idea is not without precedent". And yes, some of them have ordered one example of each.

To set the rear of the vehicle off, it uses Aston Martin Vulcan-inspired "Blade" tail lights that look as if they're "Star Trek" warp reactors ready to blast into the 31 century, or as we've stated previously, like Tony Stark's arc reactor from "The Avengers". "We could easily fulfil demand for more cars than this, but we want Zagato to remain something very special".
