Aston Martin has announced it will produce a Volante version of its acclaimed Vanquish Zagato model.

Coinciding with the Coupé’s North American premiere at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Aston Martin has revealed images of a limited-edition Volante (Aston-speak for convertible). Like the Coupé, production of the Vanquish Zagato Volante will be limited to just 99 units.

The Vanquish Zagato Coupé was first shown at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Lake Como in May, with the 99 customer models now in build. Volante production will commence once Coupé production has finished.

Like its hardtop sister, the Vanquish Zagato Volante is powered by an upgraded version of Aston Martin’s 6.0-litre V12 engine, now tuned for 600hp.

The Volante is the latest creation from a history of collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato that dates back nearly six decades. Previous Aston Martin Zagato convertibles include the V8 Vantage Volante, first shown in Geneva in 1987 and the DB AR1 in 2003.

Sharing most of its design with the Zagato Coupé, the twin cowls on the Volante’s rear deck blend into the leading edge of the luggage compartment, concealing a folding hood. Inside, the Zagato signature ‘Z’ quilt pattern features in stitching on the seats and doors, with the famous Zagato ‘Z’ embossed on the headrests and stitched into the centre console.

Pricing for the Vanquish Zagato Volante has not been announced, although the Coupé is believed to have set each of the 99 lucky owners back about £500,000. Volante customers won’t get their expensively-manicured hands on their cars until 2017.
