2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster

The Speedster made its full debut in August 2017, and unsurprisingly it looks both gorgeous and very similar to the Zagato coupe, and especially the Zagato Volante convertible. It's also the rarest example of the Vanquish Zagato, as only 28 examples will be built, while the Coupe, Volante, and Shooting Brake will each be made in batches of 99. As with the Coupe and Volante models, the Speedster and Shooting Brake are based on the Vanquish S production car, with its 592 bhp V12 and Touchtronic III automatic gearbox. (

The Speedster and Shooting Brake represent the two extremes of the Vanquish Zagato family. The former is an uncompromising roofless design that expresses the raw excitement of an open-top ultra-high performance sports car. The boldest aspect of the Speedster's design is the Speed Humps, finished in exposed carbon fiber, that rise up to form streamlined cowls that flow back from the seats, representing Zagato's signature 'double-bubble' roof. All the body panels are made from carbon fibre (like the other cars in the Vanquish Zagato family), while shared details, such as the Aston Martin Vulcan-inspired 'Blade' tail lights and repeated 3D Zagato 'Z' motifs in the front grille and rear vent meshes, create an unbroken stylistic thread that connects these otherwise individual creations.
