Exclusive new Zagato
from Aston Martin
ASTON Martin has announced a limited series production of a Vanquish Zagato Coupe, the latest creation from its long-standing partnership with the prestigious Italian design-house Zagato.
The Vanquish Zagato Concept was unveiled at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Italy in May, and following great customer interest, a strictly limited production run of 99 cars will be built to order at Aston Martin's factory in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
The Vanquish Zagato will be powered by the company's 6.0-litre V12 powertrain which has been uprated to increase its output to 600bhp, capable of delivering a projected 0-60mph time of just 3.5 seconds.
ThAston says that the performance, matched to a unique suspension set up will create a unique GT driving experience specific to the Vanquish Zagato.
The design of the production Vanquish Zagato will be closely related to the concept exhibited at Villa d'Este with proportions that remain quintessentially Aston Martin. The new bodywork is entirely shaped from carbon fibre.
Inside, the Vanquish Zagato features herringbone carbon fibre trim paired with anodized bronze and optional aniline leather to give the facia, vents and rotary dials a rich material quality.
The Zagato is also defined by its ‘Z' quilt pattern stitch used on the seat and door sections, as well as the trademark Zagato ‘Z' embossed on the headrests and stitched into the centre console.
Customer deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2017. The price is yet to be announced.
