The breathtaking Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato was arguably one of the most beautiful cars on display at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este last weekend.
The regular Vanquish was already a stunner, but the talented folks at Zagato along with Aston’s own design team managed somehow to make it even more gorgeous by giving it a tailor-made carbon fiber body. It’s got the traditional double-bubble roof seen on other Zagato cars and at the back it hosts a pair of Vulcan-derived LED taillights. The sloped roofline gives the concept a dramatic side profile while the classic side strake runs from wheel arch to door similar to the CC100 concept and the new DB11.
It’s more than just a pretty face as the adjacent video shows the concept is entirely functional and you can hear its naturally-aspirated 5.9-liter V12 roar. With 600 horsepower (441 kilowatts) on tap and a carbon fiber body, the Vanquish Zagato should accelerate like a rocket and look pretty while doing it.
The interior has also gone through a makeover and hosts a tasteful combination of leather, carbon fiber, and anodized bronze. The seats and door panels are adorned with Z’ quilt pattern stitching while Zagato’s “Z” logo is embossed on the headrests and it has also been stitched into the center console.
There’s no word about whether a production run is on the agenda, but it could happen given the strong feedback received thanks to the jaw-dropping design. Even if there’s going to be more than just one, the price tag will probably be astronomical and only a very select crowd will be given the opportunity to actually buy it.
