The DB4 GT Zagato, a honed lightweight race car which is not only hugely competitive on the circuit, but isn’t too bad at achieving over 6 figures at auction. Registration “2 VEV” sold for over £10m at the Goodwood sale. Later limited run models released by the duo include the 1986 V8 Vantage Zagato, the 2002 DB7 Vantage Zagato and then the road and race model of the 2011 V12 Vantage Zagato. Each of the hand-crafted auto cars receiving a strong following and consequently a firm market positioning.
The concept Vanquish Zagato was first shown at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in May 2016. Customer interest subsequently persuaded Aston Martin to announce a limited run of just 99 cars worldwide. Their best clientele being rewarded with the opportunity to option the model as they wished. The bodywork of the Vanquish Zagato is made of carbon-fibre, with large, one-piece panels for a smooth and seamless appearance. Classic Zagato signatures include the round tail-light reflectors and the famous ‘double-bubble’ roof, originally designed to create space for driver and co-driver’s helmets. The Vanquish Zagato’s glasshouse wraps around the bodywork like a visor, emphasising its aggressive stance. The Shooting Brake takes on a functional formation and in true Shooting Brake form, the aesthetics are wild from each and every way you absorb its proportions.
