Zagato Builds an Aston Martin Vanquish Wagon, and We’re in Love

Like all right-thinking individuals, we love station wagons, particularly people who mix their elevated utility with good-looking seems. Which is why we’re notably enthusiastic about the manufacturing model of Aston Martin’s Zagato taking pictures brake, the fourth of its limited-edition, Vanquish-based Z-cars and one that’s virtually actually set to be probably the most unique wagon on the planet.

We’ve beforehand instructed you about Aston’s plans to spherical out its 325-unit Zagato household with 99 taking pictures brakes (together with 28 speedsters), following the 99 coupes and 99 Volante convertibles it has already produced. However whereas the roofless speedster was catching the headlines, the automotive we actually needed to see was an Aston Martin wagon, and the primary photographs counsel that it has been well worth the wait. Why aren’t all luxurious grand tourers bought with a long-roof model? There’s one thing of the Ferrari FF and GTC4Lusso concerning the profile view, however we’d must say that the Aston’s extra muscular rear flanks make it much more good-looking—if much less sensible. The Aston, just like the Vanquish coupe on which it’s primarily based, is strictly a two-seater.

Such beauty will come at a severe worth, one which Aston hasn’t but launched. Again in August when the automotive was introduced, we have been instructed that it was nonetheless potential to order one of many taking pictures brakes, though all the different Zagato restricted editions had bought out. As with its siblings, the taking pictures brake makes use of a 580-hp model of Aston’s venerable naturally aspirated 6.Zero-liter V-12 engine. Bodywork is carbon fiber over a bonded-aluminum body.

Zagato has been producing its personal model of Aston Martins for almost 60 years, the primary being the DB4 GT Zagato in 1960. A kind of bought at public sale for the equal of $14 million again in 2015, and whereas there aren’t any ensures that the most recent variations will rise equally in worth, they’re about as enticing as speculative investments come. Or, alternatively, use the taking pictures brake as a correct station wagon; we’d like to see the way it copes with a furniture-buying journey to IKEA.
