Press release:



The Vanquish Zagatos: Speedster and Shooting Brake join Coupe and Volante to complete quartet


  • Vanquish Zagato Coupe and Volante joined by Speedster and Shooting Brake
  • Vanquish Zagato family will see a maximum of 325 cars built
  • Production split between 99 Coupes, 99 Volantes, 28 Speedsters and 99 Shooting Brakes
  • Four designs are the result of close creative collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato

15 August 2017, Carmel, CA, USA: One of the most enduring creative partnerships in the automotive
industry reached another milestone today. First with the global debut of the Vanquish Zagato
Volante, followed by confirmation that not only will the Vanquish Zagato Speedster enter production,
but it will be joined by a spectacular Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake.

This ‘family’ of four Vanquish Zagato models will yield a total of 325 cars. As the first member of the
family, production of the Vanquish Zagato Coupes commenced in late 2016. Next to enter production
was the Vanquish Zagato Volante. Once again strictly limited to 99 cars (all of which have been
sold), production has commenced and deliveries will be completed through 2018.

Of the two remaining models, the Vanquish Zagato Speedster is the rarest, with a production run of
just 28 cars. As you would expect from one of the most collectible and covetable Aston Martins ever,
all 28 Vanquish Zagato Speedsters have been sold with deliveries scheduled for 2018. Completing
the quartet, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake will also enter production in 2018, with a total build
run of 99 cars matching those of the Coupe and Volante.

With all four cars based upon the Vanquish S, each Zagato enjoys the combination of 580bhp
naturally-aspirated V12 mated to the smooth, slick-shifting Touchtronic III transmission. Together
with adaptive damping – fine-tuned for each model - the Vanquish Zagato family promises
exceptional driving pleasure that is every bit as stimulating and memorable as their design.

The Speedster and Shooting Brake represent the two extremes of the Vanquish Zagato family. The
former is an uncompromising roofless design that expresses the raw excitement of an open-top ultrahigh
performance sports car. The boldest aspect of the Speedster’s design is the Speed Humps that 
rise up to form streamlined cowls that flow back from the seats, representing Zagato’s signature
‘double-bubble’ roof. All the body panels are made from carbon fibre (like the other cars in the
Vanquish Zagato family), while shared details, such as the Aston Martin Vulcan-inspired ‘Blade’ tail
lights and repeated 3D Zagato ‘Z’ motifs in the front grille and rear vent meshes, create an unbroken
stylistic thread that connects these otherwise individual creations.

The Shooting Brake is still a strict two-seater, but one conceived as an individual and exceptionally
practical GT. The extended roof on the concept sketch bears the iconic Zagato ‘double-bubble’
surfacing complete with glass inlays to let light flood into the cockpit. The sculptural roof culminates
in a powered tailgate that opens onto a luxuriously trimmed rear cabin area, complete with a tailored
luggage set. With dramatic herringbone carbon fibre facia with anodised bronze rotary controls,
extensive ‘Z’ motif quilting and the option of a fully aniline leather upholstery, the Shooting Brake is
a fitting complement to the Coupe, Volante and Speedster.

Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, said of the Vanquish Zagato family: “We
haven’t released Zagato models as a family before, at least not in this way, but the idea is not without
precedent. Think back to the DB7 Zagato and DB AR1, or the V8 Zagato Coupe and Volante, for
example. We’ve simply taken things a few steps further. Why create a family of Zagatos? Well, many
of our customers want different things. Some prefer the purity of a Coupe, but others love the idea
of something more extreme, like the Speedster. And yes, some of them have ordered one example
of each. There’s always an over-demand from our clients and patrons. We could easily fulfill
demand for more cars than this, but we want Zagato to remain something very special. We’re
creating collectibles, future concours cars. With only 325 cars worldwide, divided between 99
Coupes, 99 Volantes, 28 Speedsters and 99 Shooting Brakes - they are still the rarest of the rare.”

Andrea Zagato, CEO of Zagato said of the enduring creative partnership: “Zagato’s relationship with
Aston Martin began with my grandfather and the DB4 GT Zagato, almost sixty years ago. To have
a creative ‘marriage‘ thrive for three generations is something as unique as the cars themselves. My
family name is associated with all kinds of wonderful designs, but for many enthusiasts and collectors
around the world those that combine the Z of Zagato with the wings of Aston Martin are the most
special. Collaborating closely on the design of four complimentary, yet completely different Vanquish
Zagatos has been an incredibly exciting challenge. I’m proud to continue the story my grandfather
started and thrilled that our partnership with Aston Martin continues to realise such exciting cars.”
