So, Aston Martin made headlines last year with their brand new model, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake. Interior shots of the car not only made headlines but were shared and posted on social media more than cute videos of cuddly kittens! To say that this was pretty big news would indeed be an understatement.
And to further the incredible buzz surrounding this car, what if we told you that the car has already sold out, would you believe us?
The car has actually definitely sold out, but one look at the specs and photos of this car, there will be no doubt as to why.
Aston Martin was founded in London back in 1913 and has been producing quality luxury vehicles ever since and as of 2017, they have a reported revenue of 876 million dollars. Now talk about a long line of success.
A bit of Shooting Brake trivia: the term is actually the name for a style of car, much like a sedan, or hatchback, dating back to the later portion of the 19th century. The style of car, or rather, wagon, was used in hunting, able to carry all parties and their game of choice at a time.
But enough with the history lesson. Let’s concentrate on the here and now and the wonder that is this model, celebrating not only its sleek style, but it’s performance on the road and in the market.
And there sure is a lot to get excited about as the aforementioned specs speak for themselves: It comes with a 5.9-liter naturally-aspirated V12 and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
According to TopGear, Aston is known to build limited amounts of the Zagato Series vehicles. Case in point, in the past, they built only 99 Zagato Coupes, 28 Zagato Speedsters, and 99 Zagato Volantes. Their choice in numbers is definitely peculiar but hey, what can we do? As for the Shooting Brake, they once again went with a batch of 99, and like all other models before it, they sold out just recently, placing all of the vehicles with proud new owners. There’s something to be said about a company that can sell out with every one of their projects, and when it comes to the boys and girls at Aston Martin, and the Zagato series, they definitely have been hitting them out of the park, every time they step up to the plate.
So, if you were hoping to acquire one of these after you saw shots of the car and its interior online and just missed your chance, you can always wait around until one becomes available used.
