Aston Martin launches 99 Vanquish Zagato Volante roadsters

The Vanquish Zagato Volante takes everything we loved about the coupe and rips the top off, adding sunshine and freedom to an already winning formula.


Today in Carmel, California, Aston Martin announced the addition of a sister auto to the Vanquish Zagato coupe it debuted earlier this year: The Vanquish Zagato Volante.

Consequently, it’s seen fit to roll out a Volante version of its recently revealed Vanquish Zagato, in order to meet ‘overwhelming customer interest’.

Like the fixed-roof vehicle it features the 5.9-litre V12 from the standard Vanquish, albeit in a 592bhp state of tune.

Like its fixed roof sibling, the Vanquish Zagato Volante is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 that produces an impressive 592 horsepower. Some of the better elements of the hardtop are now missing – the “double bubble” top and cascading roofline, for example – but the open-air experience appears to be more than worth it. But the result is if anything even more pert than that of the coupe and distinctly different from Aston Martin’s own rumps.

Aston’s executive vice president and chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, said: ‘Just like the Coupe, we have emphasised the way surfaces change and intersect to create a muscular form.

The stunning Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato now has a droptop variant. The rest of the auto is lined in supple leather with a “Z” quilt pattern stitch used for the seats and door linings and a large “Z” embossed on the headrests and center armrest.


Pricing was not released, but deliveries begin next year.
