"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.
Aston Martin and Italian design house are known for building jaw dropping concepts and they have just released their fifth model.
The whole body has been reconstructed in carbon fiber, the side slate which cuts the side fender all the way to the door has been redesigned as well. Another design cue which stands by Zagato for over 50 years, is the double-bubble roof. One-77 styled wing mirrors also make their place on this piece of art, new redesigned LED tail lamps are being featured, as well as a quad exhaust for the rear.
Getting inside, you will be introduced by fantastic craftmanship with carbon fiber inserts, anodized bronze and anilide leather, with Z patterned quilt stitching on the seats and door sections.
A revised 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which develops 600 PS (592 HP), is the heart of this extreemly elegant concept.
The car will be exhibited at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, at Lake Como, Italy, on May 21-22.
