What Do You Think Of The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept?
Photography Tim Scott
What’s not to love about Zagato? The Italian design house has survived decades now, past many of its contemporaries, because it does one thing really well: people remember what a Zagato looks like.
This Zagato happens to be an Aston Martin, and it beautifully reflects the styling of both firms. Since this isn’t the first time the carrozzeria has penned an Aston Martin (that honor goes to the 1960 DB4 GT Zagato) and so this concept’s lines are as much of the past as the future.
Here, the Aston Martin Vanquish was re-crafted in carbon fibre to be both more rakish and extreme in function—just look at its front splitter and side skirts. Its retractable rear spoiler should come in handy once the 570-or so horsepower get whipped into a fury. Photographer Tim Scott caught the car at Villa d’Este (and look for more on that event shortly).
How much? Who knows—it’s a concept for now. If you want one, something tells us you already have Andrea Zagato’s number on speed dial. Is as often the case with projects like these, expect to see this car make the rounds at several auto shows and events over the next few years.
