British luxury sports carmaker Aston Martin has revealed the Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake set to join the Coupe and Volante models.
The Vanquish Zagato Speedster is based on the Aston Martin Vanquish. The car features a roofless design which expresses the raw excitement of a drop-top performance sports car.
The Vanquish Zagato Speedster draws power from the existing 5.9-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine churning out 580bhp. The engine is mated to a Touchtronic III transmission. The car can sprint from 0-100km/h in less than 3.5 seconds.
The front fascia of the Vanquish Zagato Speedster features twin fog lights, revamped bonnet, new rockers and fenders. The rear of the car sports humps, a streamlined cowl flowing back from the seats, representing Zagato's signature double-bubble roof.
The rear design of the Vanquish Zagato Speedster is complete with the Vulcan-inspired ‘Blade' tail lights. All the body panels will be made out of carbon fibre similar to the other cars in the Vanquish Zagato family.
The Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is the latest addition to the lineup. Aston Martin said that the Shooting Brake is still a strict two-seater but an exceptionally practical GT. The extended roof bears the iconic Zagato ‘double-bubble' design.
Zagato will produce only 325 Vanquish models in total. The company has built 99 Coupes and 99 Volantes. Only 28 examples of the Speedster will be made, and all of them have been sold. 99 units of Shooting Brake will be manufactured with production to begin in 2018.
Aston Martin has revealed two new models which will join the Vanquish Zagato family. The Speedster is based on the Vanquish with a drop-top design. But the Shooting Brake features a unique design with an extended sloping roof to give it a coupe stance. The Speedster will be unveiled at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
