Aston Martin is giving 99 lucky customers the chance to own the new Vanquish Zagato Volante, but the privilege doesn’t come cheap.
This car, which was styled by Italian design house Zagato, will sell for at least $850,000, though there are still bespoke options that can be added beyond that. Aston expects each buyer to put down a $150,000 deposit, made by October 10, and will begin delivering cars in October of 2017. Production will end in early 2018.
Aston didn’t plan on building the car initially, but the positive feedback was so great that the brand moved ahead with production. The car is powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 laying down 590 horsepower and can hit 60 mph from a standstill in 3.5 seconds.
What really sets this car apart is its unique style, achieved in part by large body panels which reduces split lines, giving the Zagato a smooth and clean look. And since they are made from carbon fiber, the weight of the Zagato Volante was kept in check.
