Known History

Aston Martin and Zagato have enjoyed a long but fitful association. They first collaborated in 1960, when the British car maker asked the Italian coachbuilder to reinvent its DB4 GT competition model for the following season. Despite its success, but no doubt on account of the very small number of cars built, it would be another 25 years before a fresh partnership between the two companies came about, this time in the shape of the controversial Vantage V8, first in coupé form and then as a cabriolet, still in very limited numbers. After this, there was a gap until the universally acclaimed DB7 Zagato was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 2002 and its DB AR1 roadster version at the Los Angeles Auto Show the same year. Both were limited series of just 99 cars. Subsequently, the two brands had some dealings with each other for tiny numbers of cars, but in general Zagato specialised in working on Aston Martin's most exclusive models, adding a final touch to them and creating some highly sought-after special series. It was in this context that the exceptional line-up of Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato models was presented at the Villa d'Este concours d'élégance in Italy in 2016. Available with four different bodies - speedster, cabriolet, coupé and shooting brake - and combining extreme sportiness and the ultimate in refinement, this series of just 325 cars, made up of 28 speedsters, 99 coupés, 99 Volante cabriolets and 99 shooting brakes, has already taken its place among the iconic luxury cars of today. The flowing lines, radiator grille, side scoops, rear spoiler and blade-like LED rear lights, akin to genuine sculptures, were common to the different body styles. So too were the 6-litre V12 engine, uprated to 600bhp, and 8-speed automatic transmission. The quilted Zagato leather on the seats and door cards, as well as the herringbone-patterned carbon fibre trim, could also be found inside all the different variants, a further sign that they belonged to this fabulous limited run of Aston Martins reworked by Zagato.

The car offered for sale is a splendid coupé version of the Vanquish Zagato with the 'double-bubble' roof which is a hallmark of Zagato's designs. Number 20 of the limited series of 99 coupés built, it has a particularly unusual specification, with 'Rosso Corsa' paintwork, 15-spoke 20-inch wheels finished in black and bronze, black brake callipers, anodised bronze side strakes and gloss black window surrounds. These items of equipment, part of the 'Villa d'Este' pack, are a stylish complement to the car's carbon fibre aerodynamic features and further enhance its magnificent design. Inside, in line with the interior equipment of the 'Villa d'Este' pack, there is an abundance of black and red quilted Zagato leather. As on cars without the pack, the centre sections of the seats, side bolsters, side pillars and door cards are all covered in leather with the Zagato logo, but here the headlining is also leather-trimmed. In addition, as a nod to the bronze details of the car's exterior, the air vent surrounds and rear seat belt guides are finished in bronze. On top of this, this car's 'Villa d'Este' pack includes a numbered plate in the engine compartment with the signature of the designers Marek Reichmann and Andrea Zagato. These features make for a particularly well finished and original model, which was delivered new by the Aston Martin dealership in Luxembourg to its first owner on 2 June 2017. It was then acquired by our client, a major collector, in 2019. Used extremely sparingly, it has covered only 3700km and is in near-new condition. A service has just been carried out to bring the maintenance schedule up to date (cf. engine light). It comes with all its accessories, with the car cover in its branded storage bag, battery maintainer, umbrella and first-aid kit. Naturally, the car will also be sold with its service book and two spare keys. Its condition and probably unique specification make this Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato coupé an exceptional example of this outstanding supercar, the ultimate expression of automotive exclusivity as defined by this Anglo-Italian partnership of two legendary companies.
