  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Returns, This Time As a Convertible

Recommended Posts

When Aston Martin announced a limited-production version of the Zagato-bodied Vanquish back in June, it simultaneously announced that the 99 copies it was going to build already had been sold. Now comes word that another run of Vanquish Zagatos will be built, this time in convertible (Volante) form, so it appears that well-heeled collectors will get another shot.

-

Once again, the total on offer is 99 cars. And although the Volante scraps the unique double-bubble roof that marked the Zagato coupe—in its place is a custom soft top derived from that on the standard Vanquish Volante—the convertible otherwise mirrors the special treatment that the Italian design house visited upon the coupe.

-

Like the Vanquish Zagato coupe, the convertible revealed at Pebble Beach is distinguished by a carbon-fiber splitter that starts at the nose and extends around the body sides all the way to the rear wheels. The lower rear valance and the rear deck have been restyled, the round taillights feature LED “blades,” and the front fenders sport side vents. The interior is dressed up with a “Z” stitch pattern on the seats and door panels, a Zagato “Z” on the headrests and center console, herringbone-weave carbon fiber, and bronze trim.

Aston Martin’s naturally aspirated V-12 is here again bumped up to 592 horsepower, resulting in a factory-estimated 0-to-60-mph time of 3.7 seconds. We’ll assume, though, that, as with the coupe, U.S. buyers again will be restricted to the federalized V-12 engine found in the standard Vanquish, meaning a mere 576 horsepower.

--

Regardless, the car is bound to be pretty quick, and Aston fans will have to be just as fast on their feet if they want to snag one, given demand for these Aston/Zagato creations. There’s no word on pricing, but we’re guessing this crowd is pretty much immune to sticker shock.
