Commemorating 95 years since a bloke named Ugo Zagato set up shop in Milan, the coachbuilding and automotive design company from Italy teamed up with Aston Martin and this is what became of it – the gorgeous Virage Shooting Brake design study.
Unveiled at the Chantilly Art & Elegance Richard Mille event, Zagato tells that the Virage Shooting Brake is a one-of-a-kind vehicle comissioned by a European client "who desired an atelier-level collectible," although it doesn't look as elegant and striking as the highly desirable and outlandish Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato.

At first glance, the Virage Shooting Brake may look like a mashup of 1950s Italia and 1970s Aston Martin models such as the V8 Vantage, the overall package is something we'd classify as top-notch automotive eye candy. That sleek roofline complemented by narrow rear quarter windows and two exhaust pipes give an aggressive stance, while the shooting brake layout offers that little bit of extra space for your golf clubs.

This Milanese design approach to British sports car design goes hand in hand with the Virage's sophisticated nature and V12 power. Paying homage to Zagato's artistic coachbuild tradition on glamorous shooting brake conversions, this model marks the completion of the Aston Martin & Zagato centennial trilogy, which started in 2013 with the highly-acclaimed DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial and DB9 Spider Zagato Centennial, which were commissioned celebrate 100 years of Aston Martin motor vehicles.
