Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept takes a standard Vanquish and transforms it into a gorgeous carbon fiber work of art complete with the signature double-bubble roof.
“The Vanquish Zagato Concept shows how our two companies can come together and push the definition of Aston Martin design,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin executive VP and CEO.
Zagato has been a long time design partner of Aston Martin. Over the years, the Italian design studio has churned out some stunning concepts and latest Vanquish Zagato is no exception. It makes use of key design elements from the One-77 supercar and is inspired by the new DB11 in some respects. Meanwhile, no Zagato concept is complete without the double-bubble roof. Bits from the Vulcan track car are also evident in the bladed LED tail lights.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept incorporates a rear spoiler into its design as well as unique quad-exhausts shrouded in a sculpted carbon fiber diffuser. Inside, the cabin is wrapped in premium materials and bespoke trim with Zagato badges embossed into the headrests and center console.
Under the hood is a 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that makes 593 hp. That’s 25 hp more than what you get in a standard Vanquish. Thanks to the use of carbon fiber, it’s lightweight which means it is likely to hit 60 mph from standstill in 3.6 sec. Top speed is expected to be around 200 mph.
The 2016 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept debuts at the annual Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on May 21.
