In August 2016, Aston Martin revealed the production version of the Vanquish Zagato Volante, a soft-top version of the beautiful Vanquish Zagato Coupe. It will share the coupe's enhanced V12, cranking out 592 horsepower. The 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds is almost as quick as the 3.5 touted by the new DB11. 99 units will be made.
The Vanquish Zagato Volante gets the same rounded taillight reflectors and "bladed LED technology" of the Vulcan supercar. Lower carbon fiber sills that run the length of the car add a pronounced, sporty emphasis. Zagato's trademark twin cowls blend into the rear deck, concealing the folded top used in the Vanquish Volante. Design director Marek Reichman says the Zagato version is more muscular and flowing that the coupe. The interior gets the Zagato "Z" quilt pattern stitch on the seats and doors, and an embossed "Z" on the headrests and doors add additional flourish.
It isn't the only open air Zagato to be shown, Aston announced it is expanding its line of limited production Vanquish Zagatos with a Speedster and an upcoming Shooting Brake. With all four cars based upon the Vanquish S, each Zagato enjoys the combination of 580bhp naturally-aspirated V12 mated to the smooth, slick-shifting Touchtronic III automatic gearbox.
