Not too long ago, Zagato, the Italian Automotive and Design company unveiled two renditions of the Vanquish, the Zagato Speedster and Zagato Shooting Brake. While the Speedster was unveiled in full, Aston Martin had only one digital render of the Shooting Brake. Now, the company has unveiled the car in full and it is drop dead gorgeous.

As reported earlier, the Shooting Brake is strictly a two-seater grand tourer. Only 99 units of these will be made. The “double-bubble” extended roofline gets narrower towards the rear. Naturally, the roof and even the A pillars are made out of carbon fibre. A panoramic glass roof lets natural light into the cabin for you and your passenger.

Tasked to move this beauty is a 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 mated to an eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission. Output is rated at 592 hp and 630 Nm of torque. On the standard Vanquish S, century sprint time is clocked in at 3.5 seconds while top speed is capped at 323 km/h. Expect the Zagato to match if not best, those figures.
