These two vehicles for sale at Galpin Aston Martin are the result of a stunning collaboration between Zagato and Aston Martin. Aston Martin’s relationship with Ugo Zagatos Milan based carrozzeria dates to the now infamous 1961 DB4 GT Zagato. A conspicuous combination of British engineering clothed in a lightweight aerodynamic swooping body, it is now considered to be one of the most desirable and thus valuable Aston Martins ever produced. However, in spite of their modern appeal, just 19 were sold in the early 1960s and this limited popularity, perhaps due to a lack of competitiveness at the racetrack, caused relations between the two companies to cool and subsequently lie dormant for close to three decades.
Indeed, it was not until 1986, when Zagatos Giuseppe Mittino made a success story out of his interpretation of the concurrent Aston Martin V8, creating the V8 Zagato and V8 Zagato Spyder, that the relationship was resuscitated. Since then the relationship has gone from strength to strength, spawning the 2002 DB7 Vantage Zagato, the 2003 DB AR1, 2011 V12 Zagato and numerous other concepts and design studies along the way. It was at the prestigious 2016 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este that Aston Martin announced the details of the latest collaboration between the two great companies; the 2017 Vanquish Zagato.
Whilst the car is quintessential Aston Martin, the svelte carbon fiber bodywork, deep Z grille, rounded rear lights, and trademark double-bubble roof are pure Zagato. Aston Martin outfitted the cars with the same powertrain as found in the Vanquish S, meaning 595 bhp albeit exhaling through a freer-flowing exhaust making for an even more glorious soundtrack. Performance is suitably stellar; 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds with a top speed on the right side of 200 mph. Keeping all the power in check is a slightly tweaked chassis with slightly firmer damping and a carbon-ceramic braking setup that is more than up to the task.
Production was limited to just 99 examples for the coupe, convertible and shooting brake variants, and 28 examples for the shooting brake. This limited the production numbers to a total of 325, making them rarities in the automotive world. Below are two of the 325 examples made and they’re both for sale now at Galpin Aston Martin. You can learn more about each of them by clicking their respective buttons.
