Aston Martin, the British automobile manufacturer, is going to discontinue the current Aston Martin Vanquish. The intention is to introduce the new model for the next year with the name, 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato. The current model was launched in 2012 as a substitute to the aging Aston Martin Virage. The Vanquish Zagato is going to be outfitted with an athletic yet elegant interior and an improved powertrain, which would stand out in the middle of other models of Aston Martin.
Due to these changes and assuming prompts from the Aston Martin One-77 supercar, the new vehicle is expected to offer an inspiring performance. The vehicle has been constructed due to extraordinary customer notice, and it will be just like the concept model, down to the aggressive external design and the powerful engine. However, Aston Martin is going to make only 99 Zagato units for the model year 2017.

The exterior design of the all-new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato will be similar to that of the One-77 super coupe. The front part comes equipped with a gigantic grille with incorporated LED mist lamps at all corners, a revamped hood, and a huge splitter for better downforce.
The side profile displays the identical molded side skirts and body panels, similar to those of the 2016 model concept. However, the trademark side strake has been redecorated to flow from the wheel curve to the door, similar to that on the Aston Martin DB11.
