New Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept unveiled

British manufacturer and Italian styling house collaborate on Vanquish-based concept inspired by Aston Martin Vulcan, One-77 and CC-100

The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept, the latest car in a line of collaborations between the British manufacturer and the Italian design house, has been revealed ahead of its public debut tomorrow at the Villa d’Este concours d’elegance in Italy.

The fifth car produced by the two companies – a partnership that started back in 1960 with the DB4 GT Zagato – draws on design cues featured on recent special-edition models such as the Aston Martin Vulcan and One-77, as well as the latest DB11.

Based on Aston’s flagship grand tourer, the Vanquish Zagato Concept was developed and engineered at Aston’s headquarters in Gaydon. The design was honed by Aston’s design team, led by Marek Reichman, in tandem with Zagato chief executive officer Andrea Zagato and his dedicated team in Milan.

Described by its makers as having “quintessentially Aston Martin proportions”, the one-off model has bodywork entirely shaped from carbonfibre, with large one-piece panels used to reduce shut-lines.

The new concept features a wraparound glasshouse and a new evolution of Aston’s trademark side-strake, which runs from wheel-arch to door in a nod to the CC-100 speedster created to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary.

The car sports a ‘double-bubble’ roof, which has been a Zagato trademark since the early 1950s that originally arose from the need to accommodate drivers’ racing helmets with a minimum impact on the aerodynamic profile.

The Vanquish Zagato Concept features wing mirrors inspired by those on the One-77, and a sculptural rear end similar to DB11's aerodynamic profile, complete with a retractable spoiler and rear hatch for access to the luggage compartment. The rear lights incorporate the ‘bladed’ LED technology seen on the Vulcan, and the round rear reflectors are an iconic Zagato design flourish. Four exhausts exit through the carbonfibre sills.

Reichman said: “Over the years, we have developed and refined our own design language and we have always gone that little bit further with our special series cars like CC-100, One-77 and Aston Martin Vulcan. The Vanquish Zagato Concept shows how our two companies can come together and push the definition of Aston Martin design.”

Andrea Zagato said the new car, “represents the essence of an important design relationship that dates back over fifty years”.

The concept also features some dynamic tweaks: the naturally aspirated 5.9-litre V12 engine has been uprated from 568bhp in the standard £195,950 Vanquish to 591bhp.

The car’s adaptive dampers have been retuned to offer sharper handling.

The interior features carbonfibre, anodised bronze and aniline leather on the facia, vents and rotary dials. A ‘Z’ quilt pattern stitch is used on the seat and door sections as well as being embossed on headrests and stitched into the centre console.

Previous collaborative concepts between Aston Martin and Zagato have developed into limited-edition road cars, and the V12 Zagato of 2011 was even raced at the Nürburgring, but Gaydon sources are tight-lipped as to whether this will be the case with the Vanquish Zagato Concept.

In addition to the official cars produced by the two companies, there have been a number of one-off cars reimagined by Zagato on behalf of private collectors. These include the DB9 Spider Zagato and DBS Coupe Zagato produced in 2013.



Zagato e Aston di nuovo assieme per Villa d'Este.
Sedere fantastico, IMHO, ma il maggiore sbalzo posteriore rispetto alla progenitrice (che era su base Vantage), sembra farle perdere l'effetto "cofano lungo e abitacolo appoggiato sull'asse posteriore".
in ogni caso la trovo bellissima.

Il retro sembra la 4C e il muso mi lascia molto perplesso...

Finalmente una Zagato che non boccio. Anzi, l'anteriore è veramente riuscito ed in generale la trovo molto apprezzabile.

Decisamente affascinante!!!

Quello che mi spaventa é che quei bellissimi fari posteriori, se dovesse essere prodotta (in piccole quantità) potrebbero sparire con qualcosa da commercio.

Un dubbio:

in vista frontale i fari sembrano troppo piccoli, a maggior ragione per via di quelle "diurne" (???) troppo grandi. Luci sproporzionate, insomma.
