2016 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupé

The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupé debuted in concept form at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Italy in May 2016. The entire body is hewn from carbon fiber. The taillights has traditional Zagato styling, but also use the bladed LED technology from the Vulcan supercar. The rear styling evokes the DB11 and features a quad-exhaust system and retractable rear spoiler. A carbon-fiber sill runs around the body. The roof has a double-bubble profile that's a hallmark of Zagato design that dates to the 1950s. 

The cabin is loaded with more carbon fiber and leathers, and the seats have a Z quilted stitch pattern with more Zs in the headrests and the center console.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated V12 uprated to 592 hp. A 0-60 run takes 3.5 seconds. 6 speed Automatic. Rear wheel drive. The suspension will be specially tuned for "a unique GT experience," which means more long-distance comfort than race track dominance.

This is the fifth time Aston Martin has teamed up with Zagato, starting with the DB4 GT racecar in 1960. The last time the partnership bore vehicular fruit was in 2011, when the V12 Vantage Zagato was unveiled.

Aston Martin has confirmed plans to build a limited production run of 99 Vanquish Zagato coupés. Each one will be built to order. Deliveries are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017. 

Aston Martin will also expanding this line of limited production Vanquish Zagatos with a Volante (99 units), a Speedster (28 units) and a Shooting Brake (99 units). This 'family' of four Vanquish Zagato models will yield a total of 325 cars. (autoblog.com & ultimatecarpage.com)
