Aston Martin has officially debuted the Vanquish Zagato Concept, a one-off showstopper combining the company s bullish good looks with the legendary artistry of Italian design house Zagato.

Starting on May 21, the car will be showcased at the Concorso d Eleganza Villa d Este, a classic car exhibition held on the banks of Italy s Lake Como.

The Italian influence is especially evident out back as there are four exhaust outlets instead of two, and the rear fascia features rounded tail lamps in true Zagato style.

Over the years, we have developed and refined our own design language and we have always gone that little bit further with our special series cars like CC-100, One-77, and Aston Martin Vulcan, said Aston s executive VP, Marek Reichman.

Inside, the spiffy grand tourer boasts a quilted Z pattern across the upholstery, and there are accents of anodized bronze, aniline leather, and carbon-fiber just about everywhere you look.

It d be a shame if such talented artisans did all this without touching the engine, but don t worry — the 6.0-liter V12 under the hood has been upgraded to 600 horsepower.
