At Aston Martin, we look to the beauty all around us when creating our cars – a trait shared by our long-standing partners at the prestigious Italian design-house Zagato
For our latest collaboration, art director Marella Zagato, designer of the limited edition Vanquish Zagato, has revealed that the exquisite colour of the concept car was inspired by a multi-faceted bronze ring from her personal jewellery collection. The car’s colour subtly changes with the movement of the sun.
Unveiled at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como, the exhilarating Vanquish Zagato Coupe is the latest creation from a partnership that stretches back over 50 years. A winning combination of Aston Martin’s material qualities and Zagato’s signature design language, the release is strictly limited to a run of 99 cars. The carbon-fibre Vanquish Zagato is an exclusive sporting GT and marks a significant new chapter in Aston Martin’s history. Previous models from this dynamic collaboration have included the most expensive Aston Martin car ever sold at auction, the iconic 1962 DB4 GT Zagato racing car, which fetched a cool £9.45m in New York in December 2015, and the 2002 DB7 Vantage Zagato.
