Aston Martin has released official images of its upcoming Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake, and it’s not the usual mum bus. First confirmed in a sketch earlier this year at Pebble Beach Concours in California, the Shooting Brake has been redesigned by famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato.
Rather than cater for kids in the back, the Shooting Brake retains a two-seater cabin layout and offers a larger boot space which is kitted out with bespoke tailored luggage for use on swanky weekends away.
It is the first factory-built wagon to come from the British vehicle maker and becomes the fourth member of an exclusive range of Vanquish models redesigned by the Italian company, joining the Coupe, Volante (convertible) and Speedster variants.
Faithful to the unique Zagato-designed elements found in its siblings, the Shooting Brake features all-new bodywork, trademark spotlights in the front bumper, gaping intakes in the front fenders and floating taillights at the rear.
The images also show the Shooting Brake has a steeply raked, floating-style roof that incorporates its signature double bubble treatment and extends over the liftback with a sharp rear wing.
Powering the unique wagon is a more powerful version of Aston’s 6.0-litre naturally-aspirated V12, which produces 444kW and 630Nm and drives the rear wheels through a rear-mounted eight-speed automatic transaxle gearbox.
While Aston is yet to announce pricing, interested buyers have already missed out with all 99 Shooting Brakes pre-sold to loyal collectors.
