Zagato and Aston Martin have teamed up once again and revealed their special Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake. Unveiled at the Chantilly Art & Elegance show in France and specially commissioned by a European customer, the Virage Shooting Brake is a true one-off and draws on inspiration from the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial as well as the DB9 Spider Zagato Centennial.
While Zagato hasn’t revealed just what is powering the Virage Shooting Brake, it is understood to be the British company’s staple 5.9-litre V12 engine delivering about 490 hp.
In a press release, Zagato said the “Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake Zagato represents a new, exclusive creation for Aston Martin’s limited range of elite models. It represents a point break in traditional modern Aston design that has characterized all Zagato cars since the introduction of the DB7. A modern interpretation with design cues of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Volante of the mid 80s, the new Shooting Brake Zagato creates surprise and fascination with a new shape while maintaining Zagato and Aston Martin’s core design values.”
