Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato

"Over the years, we have developed and refined our own design language and we have always gone that little bit further with our special series cars like CC-100, One-77 and The Vulcan . The Vanquish Zagato Concept shows how our two companies can come together and push the definition of Aston Martin design", said Marek Reichman, Aston's Executive VP and Chief Creative Officer.

2013 Maserati Quattroporte - official reveal

The cover is off and the new, 6th generation of Maserati Quattroporte is revealed.

This is how Lorenzo Ramaciotti, head of Maserati Design Centre explains the new design:
"Its style was born out of the guiding design principles of Maserati: harmony of shapes, dynamism of lines and Italian elegance. More generous in size when compared to the previous model, the new Quattroporte has a design that is at once graceful and sinuous, fashioned to bring out the sporty nature of the car."
