Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake | Supercar of the Month

  • Sep 08, 2017

The first two members of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato family of supercars, the Coupe and the Volante, were announced in 2016. The company has now come up with two more cars for the family, the Speedster and the Shooting Brake. Like the first two, the Speedster and the Shooting Brake are also limited-run models.


All these performance cars are essentially the same underneath. They derive power from a 600PS, naturally aspirated V12 engine paired with a Touchtronic III transmission, but it’s not just the engine that makes these supercars special; it’s the exclusivity.


Aston Martin will only be making 325 of all these four cars put together. And the latest car that the carmaker has revealed, the Speedster, will be the rarest of all, with only 25 units to come out of the Aston Martin factory. Not surprisingly, all of the 25 units have already been booked!

Shooting Brake

The Shooting Brake has a grand tourer-type body style, with a stretched roof. Aston Martin believes that its customers want different types of cars, which is the reason why they have come up with a family of four supercars that essentially share the same underpinnings. The Coupe is a more traditional design but the Speedster is a bit extreme. The Shooting Brake is also a limited-run model, and only 99 units of this type will be rolled out.


Is there anything else that’s special about these exclusive cars? A design element on the roof that they call the double-bubble is one. Wondering how Aston Martin has managed to retain the roof’s design element on the open-top Speedster? Well, it’s formed along the cowls that flow back from the seats. All the body panels on the Speedster are made of carbon fibre.

Production of the Shooting Brake, which will be the last of the Vanquish Zagato family to be built, is scheduled for 2018.
