Aston Martin has revealed the new Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake in a set of new images revealing the car’s awesome new design.
The British car manufacturer revealed the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato range back in August this year, but now we get a closer look at the design of the new cars. The Shooting Brake was unveiled next to the Speedster, Volante and Coupe variants but was kept under wraps until now.
Aston will build just 99 shooting brakes, which join the 99 each of coupes and Volantes, plus the the 28 Speedsters, for a total production run of 325 of the cars styled by the Italian design house for Aston.
Then comes a 5.9-litre V12 with 592bhp, a Touchtronic III auto gearbox and rear-drive. For this Shooting Brake, we get a powered boot that opens up to reveal what we’re promised is a nicely finished cabin area. There’s even a luggage set promised. Though on these last points, Aston is again cruel because we have no pictures of the interior. Look closely at the above pics though, and you’ll probably make it out.

“Shooting brake” may sound like just another snooty British term for something ordinary like a station wagon, but it is a traditional term for two-door wagons that have long been made by companies such as Jaguar and Volvo. The term, like “station wagon,” arose from the vehicles’ use, but rather than transporting groups from the train station, they were used by hunting parties to go shooting.
Maybe the notion of ordering such an exclusive ride as the Aston Martin Shooting Brake is fantasy anyway, but that is particularly true because Aston says all 99 of the cars are already sold.
