New Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake Is Coming For Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Say what you will about two-door Shooting Brake body styles, but what they certainly are is very exclusive, with only the Ferrari GTC4Lusso out there, the successor to the FF.

In fact, Ferrari have done quite a few throughout their history. Take for example the 330 GT 2+2 Vignale or the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. We also can’t forget about the likes of the Volvo 1800 ES, Lotus Elan S4 Estate, BMW Z3 M Coupe or the Lancia Beta HPE.

What about Aston Martin you ask? Well, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake model is not their first-ever GT wagon, because that would mean forgetting about the DB5 Shooting Brake or the more recent Virage Shooting Brake, which had a very short production run back in the early 90s.

Times, they are a-changing

Nowadays, people who can afford to purchase ultra-expensive GTs understand there’s been a shift in perception when it comes to surprisingly practical supercars or luxury cars. Otherwise, we would have never seen a Ferrari FF, or a Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo.

So knowing that, we’re not the least bit worried about how well something like the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake will do for itself in terms of sales, especially since Aston Martin will reportedly only build 99 of them.

We’re not sure what Aston Martin is doing with this particular prototype, as we’ve already seen the first production samples (remember this controversial pink-colored model?) being readied for delivery, but it was spotted in southern Europe.

Essentially, it’s simply a more practical take on the Vanquish Zagato Concept unveiled a couple years back at Villa d’Este. The rear end design is nowhere near as sleek as the Concept‘s, which is of course by design so as to give the Ferrari GTC4Lusso a run for its money.

However practical it may look, don’t expect to take the kids to school in it, because according to Aston Martin, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is a “strict two-seater”, where its wagon-style roof is only meant to let more light into the cabin and allow for more luggage space.

Meanwhile, interior features include a herringbone carbon fiber trim, anodized bronze controls, optional aniline leather upholstery and a power tailgate, sheltering a tailored luggage set.

Article has been updated to reflect the fact that first deliveries of the Shooting Brake are already on their way
