Aston Martin decided to enter the crossover market with a production version of the DBX concept planned for release in 2011, now they plan on adding a supercar crossover. The company announced that it will move one of its new concept cars, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato, into limited production. The Zagato lineup includes a shooting brake (don’t worry it’s just a station wagon) that, these days, fits neatly into the crossover segment.
Zagato is an Italian design house that has been building custom sports car body frames for Aston Martin, among other companies, for decades. The collaboration will produce a total of just 325 cars. The model breakdown will be 99 coupes, 99 shooting brakes (station wagons), 99 Volante convertibles, and 28 speedsters. The shooting brake will be a stunning sports wagon with interior cargo room that you would never expect (or, let’s be honest, need) in an Aston Martin.
While official pricing has not been announced you can expect to pay a pretty penny for the carbon fiber bodies, naturally aspirated V12, 580 horsepower engines that come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. We wonder if we’ll see Daniel Craig in any of these models in the next 007 flick. We can’t wait to see Bond driving a station wagon.
Like most other high design concept cars, all of the planned production output has been spoken for, and production for all of these will be phased in over the next few years. The coupe and Volante will cost around $800,000, the Speedster rings in at $1.3 million, and the Shooting Brake is the least expensive in the group at just $770,000. Just.
