Aston Martin Vanquish Roadster Zagato 2004

(from Zagato Press Release) Zagato and Aston Martin: a strong alliance that goes back to the 60s with the legendary DB4 GTZ, continued in the 80s with the Vantage and Volante, and is now firmer than ever in the new millennium with the DB7 Zagato and American Roadster 1.
These are the cult cars of collectors and enthusiasts, always prime examples of the instant classic.
At this year's Geneva Motor Show, Zagato is presenting the Roadster version of the Aston Martin Vanquish, partly leaving unchanged the original project. For the first time, this Milan workshop is not giving an entirely new look to the production model, but is offering an interesting variation of the Vanquish, introducing innovative, futuristic touches of style.
While the Aston Martin DB7 Zagato and AR1 were initially presented to customers in the form of a limited edition, immediately sold out, the Vanquish Roadster is a 'provocation' proposed by Zagato with the backing of Aston Martin itself.
Close cooperation between Nori Harada, Zagato's Automotive Chief Designer, and Peter Hutchinson, Design Manager at Aston Martin, has resulted in this new car introducing elements that are a sharp break with the Roadster segment.
A decidedly original interpretation that combines the totally unique design of the rear with the introduction of a functional modular cover system.
A hard top for winter, developed to not appear as an add-on but as an integral part that also takes in the rear. On warmer days of the year, its place is taken by a transparent hardened glass and an easily used soft cover.
Developed by Zagato's engineers, this soft top is easily and simply mounted and, when not in use, is held in the luggage compartment without taking up much space.
The car has a round rear light cluster, a tapered tail to best feature the wheelbox and a completely new rear bumper. The hardened glass, with its curvy 'double bubble' form, emphasises how unique and valued is this proposal, balancing in a different, almost extravagant way, the relationship between the solid and void.
Special care has been applied to the interior trim, made exclusive by the design and type of seaming introduced.
A luggage compartment immediately behind the seats can also be seen through the glass cover.

If I was very very rich, that's the kind of unique car I would own.

Don't like..the back is sad. The lights should be extinct, in car terms they're a triceritops.

I already have a mental image of the Vanquish and with the Zagato the rear just doesn't seem to fit, especially since the face is virtually unchanged.

That looks fackin' awesome.

I love the way the lines just... flow. It's so sensuous.

Love the lights, too. They add a great classic touch.

I'm not really sure what to think of this car... It seems cool but on the other hand I don't like it at all. The front is awesome but the rear just doesn't fit...

Zagato has done a great job with this one, but the rear really kills the overall look of the car.
