Aston Martin has released the first photos of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake models, which will join the Vanquish Coupe and Volante models to complete the family.
As stunning as the Speedster and Shooting Brake models are, the bad news is that Aston Martin is only going to produce 28 Speedsters and 99 Shooting Brakes. Aston Martin is also only going to produce 99 Coupes and 99 Volantes, so the limited production numbers for the Speedster and Shooting Brake models aren’t that surprising.
Between the Speedster and the Shooting Brake, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is the more exciting version. Aston Martin has only released this single photo of the Shooting Brake, but its extended roof has double-bubble contours with “glass inlays to let light flood into the cockpit.” The model is strictly a two seater, with a bronze themed interior. The driver and passenger will also have custom luggage that can easily fit in the back.
The Vanquish Zagato Speedster is a sportier version of the Volante with its carbon fiber body parts. The Speedster is already sold out, but deliveries for the lucky new owners start in 2018.
All four Vanquish Zagato models are powered by a naturally-aspirated 580-hp 6.0L V12 that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
“Why create a family of Zagatos,” Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman asked. “Well, many of our customers want different things. Some prefer the purity of a Coupe, but others love the idea of something more extreme, like the Speedster. And yes, some of them have ordered one example of each.”
