When the automaker revealed the Zagato Speedster at Pebble Beach in August 2017, the Shooting Brake remained a sketch. in Oct 2017, photographic proof of what the 99 limited edition Shooting Brakes will look was released.
The Shooting Brake is still a strict two-seater, but one conceived as an individual and exceptionally practical GT. Aston Martin's 580-hp V12 provides useful intent up front, a "luxuriously trimmed rear cabin area with tailored luggage" carries its weight in back. In between, driver and passenger revel in a herringbone carbon fiber fascia, anodized bronze dials, glass-inlay for the double-bubble roof inviting lots of light, and Z' motif quilted leather. With the option of a fully aniline leather upholstery, the Shooting Brake is a fitting complement to the Coupe, Volante and Speedster.
The Shooting Brake goes into production in 2018, alongside the Speedster. As with the first three bijoux, every Shooting Brake has already found a home. When Aston Martin hands the last set of keys to the final buyer, these 325 special editions will mark the close of another chapter in an Anglo-Italian cooperation begun with the 1960 DB4 Zagato.
