Someone Has Ordered a Raging Pink Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake and We Understand
This is a wild one!by Ciprian Florea, on
Unveiled in late 2017, the cool Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is starting to make appearances on public roads. Aton Martin Lagonda Group SEO and President Andy Palmer spotted one during a factory walk, and it’s more outlandish that the car we’ve seen on auto show floors - simply because it’s painted bright pink!
It’s a rather unusual color for an Aston Martin. We’ve seen pink Lamborghinis and Bugattis, and Mopar made some headlines with its Panther Pink and Moulin Rouge paints in the 1960s and 1970s, but it’s not a common color for British sports cars. Needless to say, this Shooting Brake will stand out at any supercar meeting.
As a brief reminder, the Vanquish Shooting Brake was launched in 2017 alongside other Zagato-designed models, including a coupe and a Speedster.
It's powered by the same 5.9-liter V-12 as the standard Vanquish and pumps out 592 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.
At least in most of the world, anyway. In the United States, more stringent emissions regulations drop it down to 580 horsepower which is, suffice it to say, more than enough. Only 99 units of the Zagato Shooting Brake will be built and it’s not really that big of a deal considering its only competition is the Ferrari GTC4Lusso that delivers more power but should be in the same price range.
