2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Arrives at Dealerships Early Next Year

GAYDON, England — The limited-production 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato will begin arriving at U.S. Aston Martin dealerships early next year.

An Aston Martin spokesman told Edmunds that pricing has not yet been announced, but it's a moot point, since all the special-edition coupes scheduled for North American delivery have already been sold.

Prices for the standard 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish coupe start at $291,775, while the Volante convertible is priced from $309,775, both including gas-guzzler tax and a $2,825 destination fee.

Competitors to the top-of-line Aston Martin Vanquish include the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Bentley Continental GT.

Just 99 examples of the 2017 Vanquish Zagato, the latest model in the 50-year partnership between Aston Martin and Italian design firm Zagato, will be produced, each built to order at the Aston production facility in the U.K.

The carbon-fiber body features sleek, aerodynamic lines with sills that run around the lower bodywork to create a pronounced line from front to rear, as well as a new twist on the classic Aston Martin side strake that runs from wheel arch to the door, similar to the 2017 DB11.

Up top, there's a double-bubble roof, a Zagato trademark since the early 1950s, and the rear end is punctuated by a retractable spoiler and unique "bladed" LED taillights.

The interior of the Vanquish Zagato is set off by herringbone-patterned carbon fiber with anodized bronze on the fascia, vents and rotary dials. The seats and door panels feature unique "Z" quilt patterned stitching and the Zagato "Z" logo makes an appearance on the headrests and center console.

Power comes from the Vanquish 5.9-liter V12 engine that produces 568 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, which comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Together with an uprated suspension system, Aston Martin says the combination will "create a unique GT driving experience specific to the Vanquish Zagato model."

Edmunds says: All examples of the 2017 Vanquish Zagato may be sold, but interested buyers can see their local Aston Martin dealer about a Vanquish coupe or Volante convertible.
