One Of 99 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volantes Spotted In London

It’s not often you get to see such a rare and expensive car sitting so nonchalantly in an alley, of all places, yet there’s why this Vanquish Zagato Volante was spotted.

The images were taken in London by ErikG_NL, showing the convertible version of the gorgeous Vanquish Zagato wearing a red, carbon fiber-infused exterior and a dual tone red and black leather interior.

Aston Martin first launched the car at Pebble Beach in 2016, where they also announced that they would only be making 99 units of the soft-top, the same limited number as the hardtop.

If you think this car isn’t exclusive or expensive enough, we’ll just point out that, a couple of weeks ago, a Swiss dealer put a Vanquish Zagato Volante up for sale and the asking price was roughly $1.5 million.

Aside from its bespoke design, the Vanquish Zagato Volante features a 5.9-liter naturally-aspirated V12 with 592 horses, which enable it to sprint from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds.

    Massive Cool

  • It looks stunning in real life background.

    Makes me remember story in last year Pebble Beach where some wealthy visitor wants to buy the Coupe but he is informed that it’s sold out, Zagato offered the shooting brake and he paid in full that day. Without even seen the car will looks like.

      Cool story.
      But i think wealthier man would have offered some more cash to Zagato for making one more coupe..
      That would be BETTER STORY:)

      • Lol yeah, well the even better story is for convincing the client to fund next Zagato project (Among them, Alfa TZ4 in 2019, you hear it from me first)

    Okay stunning! How did they achieve that rear quarter panel shape with so few cut lines?

    • europeon

      Carbon can be glued, and aluminium can be welded without visible seams, especially if you paint it over. It’s no rocket science.

      • TheBelltower

        Guess I’m easily impressed! 😉
        It’s a clean look that could have been very messy if there were lots of seams.

        • europeon

          Yeah, one of Zagato’s staples is to have as fewer panels as possible.

      • MAY NOT BE ROCKET SCIENCE BUT IT AIN’T COMMON. LOOK AT THE NEW BENTLEY CONTINENTAL WITH THE BUMPER/FENDER REAR BREAK LINE, A NASTY INEXCUSABLE SCAR.

          True, but when designing a car engineers have to take into account a lot of things like packaging, repairability, serviceability production cost… less than glamorous stuff that aren’t obvious to everyone. With a low production/coach car wearing a hefty price tag, they can make concessions to the designers, as the price and repairability aren’t really important factors.
          The Continental is pretty normal car, meant to be daily driven, and with 50-100k units on the streets, a lot of bumpers will need to be replaced and resprayed – making the whole rear of the car one piece, wouldn’t be viable.

          • TRUE BUT BENTLEY COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE GRACEFUL WITH THAT BREAK LINE.

  • europeon

    One of 99? LOL

    • In fairness this is collab between Aston and Zagato, and I assume Aston wants to keep Vanquish running for some more before they replace it.

      Love the Monstro though, I’m glad this owner delete the awful spoiler.

  • NICE TO SEE IT’S DRIVEN AND NOT MOTHBALLED.

  • Bash

    One of the coolest.
