Aston Martin has pulled the covers from a new limited edition model at the Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, called the Vanquish Zagato Volante.

Fans will of course remember the Vanquish Zagato coupe, unveiled in May, and now this topless production version has arrived due to “overwhelming customer interest”.

As with the May coupe, the new offering marries Aston styling with the influence of long-time partner Zagato, although the run of just 99 examples will be built at Aston HQ in England.

Power comes from Aston’s naturally-aspirated 5.9 litre V12 petrol engine, lifted from 424 to 442kW, with a projected 0-60 MPH time of 3.7 seconds.

Aston says the Volante version shares its proportions with the Coupe, including ‘bladed’ LED tail lamp technology as seen in the Vulcan supercar.

Carbon fibre is used in the sills around the lower body, and the same folding roof mechanism from the Vanquish Volante sees the roof sit overhead when required.

Inside, there’s herringbone carbon-fibre finishes along with anodized bronze, while softer materials include Bridge of Weir leather and ‘Z’ quilt stitching.

“Just like the Coupe, we have emphasised the way surfaces change and intersect to create a muscular form,” Aston Martin’s Marek Reichman said.

“We’ve endeavoured to create an elegant, flowing shape that really works to emphasise the car’s sculpted rear haunches.”

Mr Reichman said the Vanquish Zagato Volante was a pertinent example of Aston’s relationship with Zagato, adding that the pair has evolved together.

Customer deliveries are expected to begin next year, and we suspect most, if not all, of the 99 examples are already spoken for.
