The arrival of the first units of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato steering Wheel is imminent.

for some months pointed to the possibility that Aston Martin in collaboration with the house of Zagato Milano they were working on a version which would complete a trio of models created on the Aston Martin Vanquish. After the implementation over the coupe and volante (convertible), it is time to take a first look at the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster.

We’ve got the first spy photos of this model while he was going to perform a test session at the Nürburgring. However, and as we can see in the photographs, a heavy rain forced the test riders and engineers of the british brand to fail these tests and return to the center in which are kept these prototypes for testing.

Aesthetically, the main changes that will present the Vanquish Zagato Speedster is evident if we take a look at your behind. And it istrena a few new and prominent arches of safety that extend almost to the beginning of the active rear spoiler. Both arches are joined by a small but clear plate whose goal is to improve the aerodynamic performance.

Mechanically no changes are expected with respect to the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato steering Wheel. That is to say, in her gut there will still be a engine V12 naturally aspirated 5.9-liter with 600 HP combined with a automatic gearbox ZF eight-speed and a system of rear wheel drive. You will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds, improving the performance of the convertible with a canvas roof. The maximum speed will be 315 km/h.

it is Also important to note that this prototype of the Vanquish Zagato Speedster was not alone. Was accompanied at all times by a unit of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato steering Wheel which surely is being used as a point of reference for the development of the new version. And is that, simply compare them to realize that aesthetically, the only change resides in the new arches and the system open top double-decker that will be used.

¿When will he be presented? Taking into account that the photographed unit does not look a dash of camouflage, and how advanced is the project, it is not surprising that Aston Martin re-elect the same scenario that took place the laying of the length of the Vanquish Zagato steering Wheel. That is to say, what we will see in the Contest of Elegance of Pebble Beach 2017 that will take place next month of August.
