Aston Martin unveils final two cars of Zagato quartet

Industry News

Alphera prides itself on working with partners that are leading their field in innovations. With this in mind, it is with great pleasure and excitement that we hear that Aston Martin, for which we provide financial services, has launched the final two vehicles in its stunning new Zagato quartet.

The Vanquish Zagato Coupe and Volante has been joined by the Speedster and Shooting Brake. The cars will be rare with only 325 of the Vanquish Zagato family being built, 99 of each model excluding the Speedstar which will only have 28 cars produced.

The new cars, which were launched to the media in the USA, are a result of a close creative collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato. The first members of the family, the Vanquish Zagato Coupes, went into production in late 2016 followed by the Vanquish Zagato Volante. And deliveries of both these cars, which are already sold out, will be completed through 2018.

Of the two remaining models, the rarest is the Vanquish Zagato Speedster, which has also completely sold out. This is testament to how collectable and covetable the Aston Martins range continues to be. The final vehicle in the quartet, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake, will enter production in 2018.

All four cars based upon the Vanquish S are as exciting in performance as they are in design. Each Zagato boasts a combination of 600PS naturally-aspirated V12 with a Touchtronic III transmission, amongst other highly engineered adaptations and engineering innovations.

The Speedster and Shooting Brake represent the two extremes of the Vanquish Zagato family. The former is a roofless two-seater that gives its driver the ultimate thrill from  an open-top ultra-high performance sports car.

The Shooting Brake is still a strict two-seater, but one conceived as an individual and exceptionally practical GT.

In both cases the cars are beautiful both inside and out and demonstrate Aston Martin’s absolute commitment to the very best in engineering and high-end, niche vehicle manufacturing. If only we were one of the 325 that will be owning one. | Twitter: @AlpheraFS
