Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept confirmed for production
Just 99 examples of the Vanquish Zagato will be built.
Aston Martin has announced the Vanquish Zagato concept that was shown about a month ago at the Villa d'Este Concours d'Elegance has been given the green light for production.
The British firm explains the Vanquish Zagato started life as merely a concept, but "unprecedented interest" from customers ultimately convinced it to bring the model to production. The design study will change little in its transition from a concept (pictured) to a production car. Set to launch as a coupe only, it will retain a grille with Z-shaped inserts, striking air vents behind the front wheel arches, a double-bubble roof, and round tail lamps.
Inside, carbon fiber trim will provide a subtle hint that the coupe's body is made entirely out of the composite material.
Power for the Vanquish Zagato will come from a naturally-aspirated, 6.0-liter V12 engine rated at nearly 600 horsepower. The twelve-cylinder will spin the rear wheels via an automatic transmission, though performance specifications haven't been published yet.
