Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante (2017)
With the aim of supplementing of the North American debut of the Vanquish Zagato Coupe demonstrated at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Aston Martin offered an astounding model for this unusual auto named the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante.
Owing to the enormous demand on the previous Coupe model the Vanquish Zagato Volante will be manufactured in a limited number of 99 units at the main production facility of Aston Martin in Gaydon, England.
Activity started more than approximately six decades ago led to the creation of gorgeous muscular racing car DB4 GT Zagato in 1960, the DB7 Vantage Zagato in 2002, V12 Vantage Zagato in 2011 and recently developed Vanquish Zagato Coupe that was presented in the current year. Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante became the latest product of this collaborative work.
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept
Aston Martin and Italian design-house Zagato are proud to announce the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept, the latest creation from their long-standing partnership. The Vanquish Zagato Concept will make its global debut at the prestigious 2016 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, held at Lake Como in Italy.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept is the fifth car to emerge from a collaboration that stretches back over five decades, pairing Aston Martin's acclaimed sporting, dynamic and material qualities with Zagato's signature design language.
From the iconic DB4 GT Zagato of 1960 through to the V12 Vantage Zagato of 2011, every collaboration has accentuated key aspects of Aston Martin's design journey and brought them together with Zagato's own race-inspired design language. The result is a group of four sports cars that represent some of Aston Martin's most avant-garde expressions.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept was designed in close colaboration between the Aston Martin Design team led by Marek Reichman and Andrea Zagato and his dedicated design team in Milan. Developed and engineered at Aston Martin's headquarters in Gaydon, England the concept features proportions that remain quintessentially Aston Martin and emphasises a dynamic, forward-looking stance. The new bodywork is entirely shaped from carbon fibre, with the split lines on the body reduced by the use of large one-piece panels. New lights include round tail light reflectors that evoke the classic rear view of a Zagato design, incorporating the same 'bladed' LED technology as the Aston Martin Vulcan track-only supercar.
Aston Martin Vantage GTS (2017)
Aston Martin Vantage GT8
Racing is in Aston Martin's blood. From outright victory at Le Mans 24 Hours in 1959, to countless race wins in GT3 and GT4 categories and a continued race and title-winning form in the production-based GTE category of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), Aston Martin is proud to be at the forefront of GT racing.
All Aston Martin road cars possess some of that sporting DNA, but the luxury brand's most extreme models draw directly from that knowledge and passion to deliver something altogether more overt in looks and ability. The new Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is just that.
Director of Special Projects and Motorsport, David King said: "We long held the desire to create a road car that truly reflects our racing activity at Le Mans. With the Vantage GT8, we've finally been able to achieve that. By focusing on weight savings and aerodynamics, we've taken the V8 Vantage to an entirely different level of agility and aggression. It's a hugely exciting car honed to the keenest possible edge."
Inspired and influenced by the 2016 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE race car, the Vantage GT8 is a true thoroughbred. The lightest and most powerful V8 Vantage ever, the Vantage GT8's dramatically sculpted carbon fibre bodywork has been shaped by race-bred aerodynamic function. With a super-sharp chassis tuned for track-focused agility, powered by a revised 446PS1 version of Aston Martin's rousing 4.7-litre V8 and available with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed SportshiftTM II paddle-shift transmissions, the Vantage GT8 has unmistakable style, a no-nonsense stance and a driving experience that's second to none.
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
Underlining its commitment to building exceptional sports cars that appeal to the most discerning enthusiasts, Aston Martin has ushered in its 17MY range by offering the sensational Aston Martin V12 Vantage S with a manual transmission.
True icons of pure performance blessed with exceptional agility, each Aston Martin V12 Vantage S transmission option delivers its own unique character and dynamic emphasis; the manual unashamedly championing classic tradition and total driver engagement, while the Sportshift™ III transmission offers a more contemporary driving experience. Both exude the unrivaled sporting qualities for which the V12 Vantage S is renowned.
Director of Product Development, Ian Minards said: "We're all enthusiasts here at Aston Martin. Building cars that offer something exceptional is what we do. Technology drives us forward, but we understand the importance of tradition. The true purist will always hanker for the tactility and connection offered by a manual transmission, so it has been a real pleasure to offer just that in our fastest and most focused model. At a time when manual transmissions have almost entirely disappeared in high performance cars, this makes the manual V12 Vantage S a very special car indeed".
The seven-speed manual transmission features a classic dog-leg first gear position; an echo from the past that will be welcomed by driving enthusiasts. This dog-leg configuration also ensures the gears used most frequently are located in a double 'H' pattern like that of a conventional 6-speed manual.
