It has been announced that the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept from this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como, Italy will make it into production in very limited numbers, albeit slightly changed.
Just 99 examples of the vehicle will be made by the British automaker who has partnered once again with Italian design-house Zagato. The Vanquish Zagato is actually the fifth car that has come from the over five-decade-old relationship between the companies.
Powering the Vanquish Zagato will be Aston Martin’s 6.0-liter V12 that’s been massaged to produce 592 hp – about 24 more than a standard Vanquish. The company claims 0-60 mph arrives in 3.5 seconds. Other performance enhancements include a “unique suspension,” carbon fiber body, and retractable spoiler.
Visually, the Vanquish Zagato stands apart via new LED lights with round tail light reflectors that use the same LED “bladed” technology from the Aston Martin Vulcan. According to a press release, the aerodynamics of the Vanquish Zagato’s tail end has a close relationship to that of the DB11. Carbon fiber sills run from front to rear, where they come together to surround the car’s quad-exhaust.
It’s hard to improve on the design of the current Vanquish but Zagato apparently knows what it’s doing. If you like what you see, check out the other Zagato cars such as the 1960 DB4 GT Zagato racing car, the 1986 V8 Vantage Zagato, the 2002 DB7 Vantage Zagato and the 2011 V12 Vantage Zagato. All Vanquish Zagatos will be made to order and retail for a rumored $733k U.S. but don’t worry, you probably don’t have a chance at getting one anyway.
