First revealed at Monterey Car Week in 2017, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake was the then latest creation from the long-standing partnership with the Italian design-house, Zagato and completed the quartet of Vanquish Zagato’s, alongside the Coupe, Volante and Speedster models. The Vanquish Zagato Shooting brake production run was limited to just 99 cars worldwide, with 48 in right hand drive.
Based on the Vanquish, the Zagato Shooting Brake has Aston’s 5.9-litre naturally aspirated V12 up front, mated to an eight-speed ZF paddleshift transmission and delivers near-600bhp and a top speed in excess of 200mph.
The Zagato’s body is made from carbon fibre and is unquestionably sensational looking ne design highlight is the central tapering glass roof panel that runs the length of the car. Glazed in special photochromic glass it can darken its tint at the press of a button, reducing glare and adding definition to the sky above like viewing the world through a pair of sunglasses.
What’s it like to drive?
It has that epic, big-capacity shove that only a V12 can muster, but the fact it needs some revs to give its best means you get to enjoy the soundtrack and the building acceleration as it gets on top of a gear.
With so much rubber on the road there’s ample grip and traction to work with, but not so much that it dulls the satisfying blend of measured agility and inspiring poise. The Shooting Brake especially loves long corners and sweeping undulations, flowing from curve to curve with a steady right foot and a subtle squeeze of the steering wheel which as aa directness that elicits keen direction changes, but its rate of response is calm enough that it feels natural. After a few miles you’re nicely dialled-in.
Up the ante via the Vanquish’s switchable dynamic modes and you discover a different side to the Shooting Brake. You feel it in pretty much every aspect of the car – steering, throttle and chassis all suitably adrenalised – but it’s the exhaust note that enjoys the biggest change,
This Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is a stunning hand-crafted bespoke supercar, which combines blistering pace, jaw-dropping coachwork, and a surprising level of practicality. Few other grand tourers would look as magnificent as this Aston Martin when crossing continents, and it would certainly make a remarkable addition to any collection.
