Only 99 vehicles will be produced! The British automaker announced that the Vanquish Zagato concept car is the result of a partnership with the Italian design house Zagato. The concept for the car was unveiled in Italy last month and according to Aston Martin communication, it is the response to an “unprecedented customer interest”.
The Vanquish Zagato is the fifth car to emerge from the collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato which stretches back over five decades. It began with the DB4 GT Zagato racing car of 1960 which is now valued at more than £10 million and also includes the V8 Vantage Zagato launched in 1986.

In 1960, when Aston Martin and Zagato, a Milan-based automotive design firm, joined forces to build the DB4 Zagato, they spawned one of Aston Martin’s most iconic cars ever (in late 2015, a 1964 model fetched nearly $14 million at auction). The two powerful brands have just announced that they are partnering again, to build the Vanquish Zagato. In May, Aston Martin showed a one-off of the Vanquish Zagato concept at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Lake Como, Italy.
Aston Martin lovers gushed over it and the British carmaker decided to make a limited-edition run of the car. Only 99 cars will be built to order from the company’s production plant in Gaydon, England.
The car’s design draws from both luxury automotive and high-performance racing vehicles.

The new car will sport a 6.0-liter, V12-powertrain engine that can zip from zero to 60 m.p.h. in 3.5 seconds.
The roof features a “double-bubble,” a Zagato trademark from the decades the brand worked primarily on racing cars and needed to accommodate helmets with a minimum impact on the aerodynamic profile. Inside, herringbone carbon-fiber was paired with leather to give the vents and rotary dials a rich material quality. The final price is not known yet but it is estimated in between $700,000 and $1 million.
