Aston Martin has gone above and beyond once again with the development of the Vanquish Speedster and Shooting Brake. The two models represent the luxurious family of the Vanquish Zagato. The roofless design expresses the excitement of the open-top ultra-high performance sports car. With dramatic herringbone carbon fiber facia, extensive ‘Z’ motif quilting, and the option of a full aniline leather upholstery, the Shooting Brake is a fitting complement to the Coupe, Volante, and Speedster. The two models are shockingly exhilarating in every aspect—inside and out.
“We haven’t released Zagato models as a family before, at least not in this way, but the idea is not without precedent. 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. Why create a family of Zagatos? 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. There’s always an over-demand from our clients and patrons. We could easily fulfill the demand for more cars than this, but we want Zagato to remain something very special. We’re creating collectibles, future concours cars. With only 325 cars worldwide, divided between 99 Coupes, 99 Volantes, 28 Speedsters and 99 Shooting Brakes – they are still the rarest of the rare,” explained Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman.
The Speedster and Shooting Brake elegantly and exquisitely represent the two facets of the Vanquish Zagato family.
