Production of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato will be limited to just 99 units and will be built to the buyer’s exact specifications.
At the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este earlier this year, Aston Martin presented the Vanquish Zagato Concept. The feedback was so overwhelmingly positive, the British manufacturer has decided to do a limited production run consisting of just 99 units.
With the current generation of the Vanquish reaching the end of the line, the Zagato Concept is the perfect encore for such an iconic vehicle. Because of such a strong customer interest, a very limited production run will be made to order at the Aston Martin’s manufacturing facility in Gaydon, England.
The Vanquish Zagato is a collaboration between Aston Martin and Italian design house and coachbuilder Zagato. Every unit will be tailored to the needs and desires of every client. Even though pricing has not been announced, we can expect that it will not be cheap. Considering that the current ‘regular’ Aston Martin Vanquish costs close to $300,000, we should not be surprised to see the Vanquish Zagato priced upwards of $350,000.
The 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato will have the familiar 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine,, a design that first went into production almost 13 years ago. The engine in the Vanquish Zagato will produce 592 horsepower. For the sake of comparison, the new 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine powering the DB11 puts out 600 horsepower.
The naturally aspirated 5.9-liter V12 engine will propel the Vanquish Zagato from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. Aston Martin also points out in communication that the suspension of the Vanquish Zagato is tuned to provide “a unique GT, or Gran Turismo experience”. I would take this to mean that the vehicle’s suspension will be optimized for high speed touring rather than carving up canyon corners.
