Beauty lovers approve this! Aston Martin will produce the Vanquish Zagato!

When we informed you about the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept, we warned you: the car would be produced, even if in a small quantity. BINGO! Wealthy people with an incredibly good taste have begged the British carmaker for their Vanquish Zagato. So much so that Aston elegantly says the demand has been “unprecedent”. This is why Aston Martin has decided to produce 99 of these beauties. Prices, of course, are a mystery, even because these cars will be built to order. Cars built according to their buyer’s tastes may have very different prices. Besides, asking for the price is the first sign you are looking for a bargain… Not in this case, my friend!

The Vanquish Zagato is 4.69 m long, 1.91 m wide, 1.29 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.74 m. Power for this 2+2 coupé comes from a front 6.0 V12 engine that normally produces 424 kW at 6,650 rpm and 630 Nm at 5,500 rpm. In this case, it has been upgraded to generate 441 kW. Its driving dynamics have also received enhancements, but Zagato does not details the changes that suspension and brakes have undergone, for example.

Double-bubble

Apart from that and from the full carbon fiber body, most of the other changes in the Vanquish Zagato Concept relate to the studio’s specialty: design. So this Vanquish has the characteristic “double-bubble” roof and round tail lights, typical of Zagato styled cars.

In the interior, the seats feature a gorgeous lady… er, no, the lady is not included.

The seats feature the Z from Zagato in the head restraints and in the upper sides of the front seats.

Although we cannot see it in these pictures, the Z is also on the center console and in the door sections.

Another plus in the interior of the car are herringbone carbon fiber items. They are paired with shadow and anodized bronze and aniline leather details applied to the facia, vents and rotary dials. Envy is a horrible thing, but you may confess it: these 99 owners are very, very lucky gearheads!
