Aston reveal spicy Zagato range

Aston Martin Zagato range

EVER had a dream where you’ve been left in a room alone with the original Spice Girls?

Haven’t we all?

Well, anyway, this is the motoring equivalent.

Not one jaw-dropping, breathtaking, heart-pumping Aston Martin Zagato…but FOUR.

By our reckoning, that’s an orgy of Astons.

First came the Vanquish Zagato, then the Vanquish Zagato Volante boasting a V12 engine and 592bhp of pure exotica.

Now comes two more absolute heavenly creations, the Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake.

There are only 28 Speedsters being built and they are all sold already.

Under its beautiful skin is that 6-litre V12 producing 592bhp.

As with other Zagato models, the Speedster’s body panels are all carbon fibre, and features the Vulcan’s cool ‘blade’ rear lights, and Zagato ‘Z’ badges in the front grille. The two speedster humps over the rear represent Zagato’s traditional double bubble roof, because of course, there is no roof.

What does have a roof is the Shooting Brake Vanquish Zagato but this, only in sketch form so far, gets a powered boot that opens up to reveal what we’re promised is a nicely finished cabin area. There’s even a luggage set.

Andrea Zagato said: “Zagato’s relationship with Aston Martin began with my grandfather and the DB4 GT Zagato, almost sixty years ago. Collaborating closely on the design of four complimentary, yet completely different Vanquish Zagatos has been an incredibly exciting challenge. I’m proud to continue the story my grandfather started.”

Only the Shooting Brake is available to buy because the rest have gone. But if you won the Lottery tonight, which one would you choose?

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want, I want an Aston zig-a-Zagato ahh!
