Here are some of Zagato's wildest designs

Aston Martin and Zagato have done it again. In 2016 they revealed the Vanquish Zagato and Vanquish Zagato Volante models, which were nice.

Now, they’ve completed the ‘family’ by unveiling the Vanquish Zagato Speedster (see the ‘double bubble’ speed humps over the rear), and the rather stunning Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake.

Shooting Brakes, in case you’re unaware, are great. This one especially so. While all the other Vanquish Zagato models have sold out, we’re told this one is still available, with a production run of 99 models. But be quick though.

The two new models however, are just the latest in a long, fine, often wild line of Zagato-bodied creations from a company that has been modifying cars for nearly 100 years.

Ugo Zagato himself began his coachbuilding career way back in 1919, and had a simple aim: to transfer his aeronautical nous - strong, lightweight construction - to the business of cars. And in doing so, also happened to make them look bloody amazing.

So in light of these new Vanquishes, here are some of Zagato’s standout moments.
