The Limited Quartet
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake

Aston Martin has previously unveiled the Vanquish Zagato Coupe and Volante, both of which have sold out. Now, the automaker has announced that there are in fact four models being made in collaboration with Zagato, and images have been released of the Speedster and the Shooting Brake models.

“We haven’t released Zagato models as a family before, at least not in this way, but the idea is not without precedent,” said Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman of the Vanquish Zagato family. “Think back to the DB7 Zagato and DB AR1, or the V8 Zagato Coupe and Volante, for example. We’ve simply taken things a few steps further.” He also confirmed that some of their customers have ordered one example of each.

The Speedster features a roofless design and two speed humps over the rear, representing Zagato’s signature ‘double-bubble’ roof. While there is only an early sketch for the Shooting Brake, it will also be two-seater and fitted with a luxurious cabin area and a luggage set. All four models feature the 592 hp naturally-aspirated V12 engine paired with Touchtronic III transmission, while damping is fine-tuned for each model. Other features include carbon fibre body panels, Aston Martin Vulcan-inspired ‘Blade’ tail lights, and a front grille with Zagato motifs and rear vent meshes.

The Vanquish Zagatos are limited to 325 cars worldwide, including 99 Coupes, 99 Volantes, 28 Speedsters and 99 Shooting Brakes. The Speedsters, while just recently announced, are sold out too. Aston Martin could easily produce more, but they want to keep the Vanquish Zagato family as collectibles for future concours.
