Italian coachbuilder Zagato Atelier has unveiled its latest project, the Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake Zagato.
The bespoke project, commissioned by a European client, is designed to "pay homage to Zagato’s artistic, Italian coachbuilding tradition on the canvas of a shooting brake body shape".
Zagato's shooting brake was revealed at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Concours D'Elegance. The one-off Aston Martin is said to feature "cutting-edge" styling cues that "create surprise and fascination with a new shape."
Aston Martin and Zagato have collaborated since 1960. The first Zagato Aston, the DB4 GT Zagato, was launched at the London motor show in October 1960; other cars produced since then include the Vantage-based V12 Zagato.
The reveal of the the new shooting brake marks the completion of the Aston Martin-Zagato centennial trilogy. In 2013 the DBS coupé Zagato Centennial and DB9 Spider Zagato Centennial were launched, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Aston Martin.
