Limited to a production of 99 units is the new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante. The car was made at the Aston Martin headquarters in England as a companion piece to the Zagato Coupe that debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It’s the latest in a long line of extraordinary cars all the way back to the release of the DB4 GT Zagato race car in 1960.
Naturally, top-shelf performance and only the best in craft and design should be expected. The Zagato Volante will boast a V12 powertrain, ‘bladed’ LED technology and carbon fibre sills around the lower body. The interior is blessed with only the finest of flourishes such as herringbone carbon fibre, bronze detailing, Bridge of Weir leather seats, signature ‘Z’ quilt pattern stitching on the the seats and doors, and then another ‘Z’ on the headrest and centre console.
Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman had this to say: “Just like the Coupe, we have emphasised the way surfaces change and intersect to create a muscular form. We’ve endeavoured to create an elegant, flowing shape that really works to emphasise the car’s sculpted rear haunches. The Vanquish Zagato Volante illustrates the ways in which Aston Martin design can evolve in collaboration with such a trusted and long-standing partner…[and] continues Aston Martin’s new century of innovation and creativity, strengthening the association between these great automotive marques in the process”.
