Driving An Ultra-Rare £1.3m Vanquish Zagato Speedster

Thanks to Collecting Cars, I got the amazing chance to support the wheel of an extremely rare car that will quickly be coming up for auction on their site:

Among the most long-lasting imaginative collaborations in the vehicle market Aston Martin and Zagato.

The 'household' of four Vanquish Zagato designs yielded an overall of 325 vehicles. As the first member of the family, production of the Vanquish Zagato Coupes commenced in late 2016. Beside go into production was the Vanquish Zagato Volante. As soon as again strictly restricted to 99 cars and trucks (all of which have been offered).

Of the 2 remaining designs, the Vanquish Zagato Speedster is the rarest, with a production run of just 28 vehicles. As you would expect from among the most collectible and covetable Aston Martins ever, all 28 Vanquish Zagato Speedsters were offered right away. Finishing the quartet, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake had an overall build run of 99 cars and trucks matching those of the Coupe and Volante.

With all four cars based upon the Vanquish S, each Zagato takes pleasure in the mix of 600PS naturally-aspirated V12 mated to the smooth, slick-shifting Touchtronic III transmission. Together with adaptive damping– fine-tuned for each design – the Vanquish Zagato family assures exceptional driving pleasure that is every bit as stimulating and memorable as their style.

The Speedster and Shooting Brake represent the 2 extremes of the Vanquish Zagato household. The former is an uncompromising roofless style that expresses the raw enjoyment of an open-top ultra-high performance cars. The boldest element of the Speedster's style is the Speed Humps that rise to form streamlined cowls that flow back from the seats, representing Zagato's signature 'double-bubble' roofing. All the body panels are made from carbon fibre (like the other cars and trucks in the Vanquish Zagato household), while shared details, such as the Aston Martin Vulcan-inspired 'Blade' tail lights and duplicated 3D Zagato 'Z' concepts in the front grille and rear vent meshes, develop an unbroken stylistic thread that connects these otherwise specific creations.
