2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante Villa dEste For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Monterey event, 15 - 17 August 2019. The 89th of 99 examples built; only 12 for U.S. deliveryOnly three U.S.-delivery cars with the Villa d’Este package, a $27,000 optionFinished in stunning Lava Red over Pure Black and Spicy Red leatherOffered from original ownership on MSOThe only new Zagato Volante available in the U.S.Showing mere delivery mileage Perhaps no automaker and coachbuilder have such an illustrious and storied history together. For Aston Martin and Zagato, the relationship dates to the 1960s DB4GT Zagato race car. The lightened, streamlined version of Aston Martin’s DB4 could have been the beginning of the end for the two, as demand was not as strong as either party had hoped. History has been kind to the DB4GT Zagato, thanks in part to a strong competition debut in 1961, when Stirling Moss took 3rd place at Goodwood. The two parties took a lengthy break before rekindling their relationship in the mid-1980s with a special coachbuilt version of the muscular Aston Martin Vantage. It would simultaneously pay homage to Aston Martin’s last collaboration with Zagato and set the stage for the next 35 years. By the 21st century, Aston Martin and Zagato’s partnership was as strong as ever. It was hardly a surprise when, on the shores of Lake Como, Aston Martin took the wraps off its Vanquish Zagato in 2016. The car was first presented in concept form, and four production body styles would eventually follow the coupe—the racy speedster, the voluptuous shooting brake, and the evocative Volante convertible. One particularly committed Aston Martin enthusiast ordered four matching cars, one in each body style. The following year, Aston Martin chose the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the stage for the Vanquish Zagato Volante’s global debut. Presented alongside the production Vanquish Zagato coupe, the drop-top Volante shares the round headlights and bladed LED taillights that link the cars to the Vulcan supercar. The wing mirrors draw from the One-77 supercar. Carbon-fiber lower sills remind those who catch a glimpse of this special Aston Martin that it is more than rolling art. Where the Volante differs compared to the coupe is above its belt line. The twin cowls integrated into its rear deck merge into the leading edge of the trunk lid. Hidden underneath is a special convertible top specific to the Zagato Volante. Inside, Zagato worked directly with Aston Martin’s bespoke Q division to create special cabin treatments befitting the car’s unique positioning in the Vanquish lineup. The quilted Z-pattern detail on the Bridge of Weir leather upholstery that drapes the sport-seat bolsters adds a distinct touch not often seen in bespoke sports cars. Zagato took conventional carbon-fiber trim and reworked it in a herringbone pattern for the dashboard and doors. The Vanquish Zagato Volante offered here, the 89th of just 99 examples delivered worldwide, is being offered as a new car by the original owner on MSO. The Zagato Volante is finished in striking Lava Red over a Pure Black with Spicy Red leather interior with matching red stitching. Furthermore, the car features a wide array of optional extras, including: upgraded alarm with volumetric and tilt sensor; contemporary Alcantara; auto-dimming mirror with garage opener, and a color-keyed One-77 steering wheel. Exterior options include painted black calipers and a black textured tailpipe. Last not but least, this exceptional example is equipped with the optional “Villa d’Este” package, which features the badges, wheel spokes, and side strakes finished in gold—which is likewise brought through to the dashboard vents, center console switchgear, and steering wheel. As one of just three U.S. examples outfitted with the $27,000 Villa d’Este package, this special Zagato-massaged Aston Martin is the only remaining example in the U.S. that is being offered as new. The Zagato Volante shows mere delivery mileage and is ready for its next owner to experience a sports car six decades in the making.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo19.
