Recently, Aston Martin unveiled the brand-new, limited-edition Vanquish Zagato, the result of a partnership between the car manufacturer and Italian automotive design powerhouse Zagato. Zagato was founded in 1919, and has developed the bodies of some of the most iconic cars in the industry—from Aston Martins and Lamborghinis to Maseratis and Bugattis. The design company specializes in limited-edition models intended for collectors.
Aston Martin will produce only 99 Vanquish Zagatos at their facility in England. It is the fifth Aston-Martin to be created in conjunction with Zagato. Other cars developed through this collaboration include the DB4 GT Zagato released in 1960 (now valued at over $12 million dollars), the V8 Vantage Zagato in 1986, the DB7 Vantage Zagato in 2002, and the V12 Vantage Zagato in 2011. According to Aston Martin, “The Vanquish Zagato is a powerful addition to that portfolio: a GT car that blends Aston Martin’s inherent refinement and capabilities with Zagato’s characteristic design details, born out of racing and honed over many years of creating elegant luxury sports cars. Aston Martin’s 6.0L V12 powertrain has been uprated to increase its output to 600PS1, capable of delivering a projected 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. This added performance matched to a unique suspension setup will create a GT driving experience specific to the Vanquish Zagato model.”
The Vanquish Zagato will be ready for delivery in the first quarter of 2017. To chat about purchasing a Vanquish Zagato, stop by indiGO Auto Group’s Aston Martin Rancho Mirage on the Desert European Motorcars Campus.
