Aston Martin reveals Vanquish Zagato concept

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept 02

THE LATEST ASTON Martin to get the Zagato treatment is this V12 Vanquish concept.

Italian design house Zagato has a long history of re-styling performance cars, most notably Aston Martins, and the most recent car to go under the knife is the latest Vanquish.

The bodywork is made entirely from carbon fibre and was designed and developed in collaboration with Aston Martin at the Gaydon plant.

Featuring Zagato’s trademark large mouth/grille at the front, One-77-inspired wing mirrors and DB11-inspired, heavily sculpted rear-end, it certainly improves on the Vanquish’s styling, which is far from ugly but has faced criticism for looking too much like every other Aston Martin from the last decade or so.

Other styling features include a double-bubble roof, ‘invisible’ A-pillars, ‘bladed’ LED lights and large carbon fibre sills all-round.

Powered by an uprated version of the Vanquish’s V12 engine, up nearly 3obhp to 592bhp, the Vanquish Zagato is only officially a concept, but we’d love to see it go into very limited production like its forebears; at a typically hiked-up price, of course.

Speaking of which, take a look at the Vanquish Zagato’s ancestors below:
