There are few automotive duos as iconic as the Aston Martin-Zagato partnership. And today’s drool car is one of the most stunning examples of their work. This Vanquish Zagato Speedster is an absolute stunner. You will be hard-pressed to find another design that packs the same punch as this one. Sure, the standard Vanquish is impressive in its own right, but few other production cars on the planet take drop-top GT recipe to this level. Let’s dive in and see why this model is so special.

Motivating this gorgeous Speedster is the same V12 used in the Vanquish S. With 595 bhp and 630 Nm of torque on tap, the car can reach a top speed of over 200 mph. A Touchtronic III 8-speed gearbox made by ZF fires off lightning-quick shifts while achieving respectable fuel economy figures, at least for a sports car boasting a 6.0-litre, 12-cylinder engine. Aston claims the Zagato can hit the 62-mph mark in just 3.5 seconds. The real story here, of course, is the Vanquish Zagato’s achingly beautiful new carbon-fibre bodywork. In Speedster guise, two curvaceous humps lead up to the open-roof cockpit. Like the standard Vanquish, carbon fibre is everywhere, including the hood vents and front splitter

With just over 500 miles on the odometer, this Zagato promises to be a nearly pristine example of the Italian-British design. As you can see in the photos, this is a picture-perfect vehicle. And I just love that green paint – it seems to perfectly match the effortless grace of the Vanquish Zagato. Of course, that means it will not come cheaply. Listed at £1.5 million, this is one pricey Aston Martin. Top-down GT perfection might just be worth it, however. I’ll start saving now, I think.
