- The British firm has confirmed that the new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante will be officially presented during this year’s events at Pebble Beach.
- This will be the open variant of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato coupe presented in 2016 and will feature the same V12 mechanics of 600 hp.
Aston Martin has confirmed that the new limited edition Vanquish Zagato Volante will be officially unveiled this month during the Monterey events in California. The new model happens to be the open variant of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato presented just a year ago in the Concorso d\’Eleganza Villa d\’Este 2016, a version made by Aston Martin but designed by the Italian bodybuilder Zagato.
The fruitful collaboration between both companies goes back to 1960, with the British brand\’s request to create a more aerodynamic version for the then recent DB4GT competition . From there was born the DB4GT Zagato, the first of a long list of models designed by Zagato for Aston Martin.
Curiously, the new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante was completely unveiled a year ago , with images published online just two months after the live presentation of the coupe version, although so far the brand had not presented the live model.
We recently had the opportunity to see the new Vanquish Zagato Volante live during tests at the Nürburgring , where it was accompanied by the last variant of this series, the Vanquish Zagato Speedster , a modified version of the Zagato Volante.
Like the coupe variant, the Zagato Volante – and presumably also the Zagato Speedster – will be equipped with the same 6.0-liter V12 and 600 hp . The production of this special model will also be limited, only 99 copies of the Volante will be manufactured, the same figure of production that enjoyed the coupé, all already sold.
During its presentation at Pebble Beach, the new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante will be accompanied by other models of the brand, such as the new Rapide AMR or some of the classic models made by Zagato , such as DB4GT Zagato itself or DB AR1 of 2003.
