Good partnerships bring out the best in both parties, but they can sometimes be hard to come by. Things don’t work out, people disagree, lines get crossed – it happens. That hasn’t been the case when it comes to Zagato and Aston Martin, however. Just recently the two brands have announced a striking new collaboration with their Vanquish Zagato Concept.
Aston Martin’s headquarters in Gaydon, England worked closely with the Milan-based Andrea Zagoto to design and produce this aggressive lightweight carbon fiber body. The Vanquish’s updated 590 horsepower V12 engine now pushes a body constructed from large one-piece panels and featuring specially designed ‘bladed’ LED tail lights. When they step inside, passengers get more than just a powerful car, but a striking interior adorned with a herringbone carbon fibre console and aniline leather seats. Prices have yet to be set, but the car will be making its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Lake Como, Italy.
