Aston Martin has once again collaborated with the Italian design-house Zagato. This time it’s the Vanquish Coupe which has been chosen for transformation by the designing firm. Its concept, called the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato was unveiled in Italy this May where it received an enthusiastic response from the visitors. As a result the British sportscar manufacturer has decided to put the car in to production. However, only 99 of this special edition Vanquish will be made.
The modifications done by the designers at Zagato makes the car looks even more menacing than the standard Aston Martin Vanquish. A lot of design inspirations has been taken other Aston Martin sportcars like the One-77 and the track monster Vulcan. The entire body panels are now made up of light weight carbon fibre. The 6.0L V12 engine is now tuned to produce 600PS of power in the Vanquish Zagato. With this, the vehicle can now do a 0 to 100kmph run in just 3.5 seconds. In order to make the best out of this increased engine performance, there are certain modifications done on the mechanical front as well.
This is however not the first time that Aston Martin has collaborated with Zagato. The legacy started with the designing firm first crafting a special edition 1960 DB4 GT, the same vehicle now costs over 10 million Euros. Other cars which have been made as special editions by Zagato includes the V8 Vantage Zagato which was launched in 1986, the 2002 DB7 Vantage Zagato and the V12 Vantage Zagato revealed in 2011.
