Aston Martin and coachbuilding company Zagato have revealed their next creation, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept. The collaborative concept was revealed at the Concorso dâ€™Eleganza Villa dâ€™Este, which was held at Lake Como on May 21 and 22, 2016. The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept marks the fifth car made byÂ the British-Italian collaboration.
The Vanquish Zagato Concept has been designed with close collaboration between the Aston Martin design team and Andrea Zagatoâ€™s dedicated design team in Milan. Engineering and development was done at Aston Martinâ€™s headquarters in Gaydon, England.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept has all its panels made from carbon fibre with a wraparound windshield akin to those seen on Koenigseggs. It also features a double bubble roof, a design cue as seen on many Zagato creations. The front end resembles the standard Vanquish, save for the grille made up of Zâ€™s. The rear end on the other hand is completely transformed. The tail lights feature the same LED tech seen on the Aston Martin Vulcan and have a round profile which reminds us of the Alfa Romeo 4C and 8C Competizione. Paired with quad exhaust tips, the Vanquish Zagato Concept has a rear end whichÂ is quintessentially Italian.
The interior of the car features more Zagato design cues, with â€˜Zâ€™ themed upholstery. The concept shares the same underpinnings as the Aston Martin Vanquish and is powered by a tuned variant of the 6.0-litre V12 which produces 600PS.
