New Aston Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake images

"Working with the legendary Italian styling house Zagato Milano to combine traditional craftsmanship with high technology and absolute exclusivity, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato delivers a unique combination of performance, rarity & fastidious attention to detail."

So read the Tweet accompanying these new Vanquish Shooting Brake images - thanks goodness for the increased character limit, right? - Aston updating what we knew already from the car's confirmation in October. Beyond that it's up to you to work out what's new, with no further information released.

Perhaps the biggest point of interest is inside, this being the first time the Shooting Brake's cockpit has been seen. Predictably enough it's fantastically sumptuous in there, Zagato-embossed tan leather covering nearly ever surface. Where there's not leather there's carbon fibre - see the incredible divider between passenger and storage area - the interior then brought to life with an ornate glass roof. It even looks quite spacious in the back, this Shooting Brake, irrelevant observation though it will be to every single buyer - this isn't doing the tip run any time soon, is it?

This particular car features two-tone wheels of black and gold that were seen on last year's Zagato, plus Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Don't forget, either, that all the Zagatos will use the old 5.9-litre V12 in Vanquish S form - and therefore with 600hp.

325 Vanquish Zagatos will be made; with the Coupe and Volante already produced, it's just Shooting Brake and 28-car Speedster run left to come. We await the arrival of both with considerable interest...

    No thanks - too "over-styled" for my taste, particularly the side. What's going on behind the front wheel-arch?

    Does not look roomy enough what's that rear box built in ?

    The dog will slide around all over that carbon fibre boot floor, before having it's head cut off by the divider when I have to hit the brakes hard.

    It's also a bit "fussy" on the styling front isn't it?

    The interior colour and textile is pretty horrible tbh

    Those seats are just dreadful. I can't see beyond them. It's like Zorro had a fking field day in there.
