Spend £695k on the most beautiful car in the world!
This is relatable buying advice, right here!
Stop right there! If you were about to buy a Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Flying Spur or McLaren Senna, I have some buying advice for you! We all know that buying a flashy new production car will result in you losing a lot of money. There are two ways you can limit this though. Firstly, buy a car that is a few years old. Secondly, buy a car that is very rare.
And this Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster fits both of these examples. (It also means that if someone asks you what car you drive there is no one word answer). But that's beside the point. Aston Martin, known for creating the most beautiful cars in the world, collaborated with Zagato, known for creating the most beautiful cars in the world. And, well, the result wasn't exactly ugly!
The limited run Vanquish Zagato range had four parts. 99 Coupes were made, 99 Volantes, 28 Speedsters, (and the editors choice) 99 Shooting Brakes. And yes, before you ask, many customers bought all four!
But this article is about the rarest, because there is one for sale, right now! Yes, that's right, for just under £700k you can have a modern Aston with a Zagato badge and incredible looks. And, if I'm making it seem like a bargain, it kinda is! You see, the only reason this car is valued lower than it's peers is due to just under £10k miles on the clock, meaning this car has actually been driven! Garage queens have been known to go for £1.5 million.

But, I am going to imagine for a moment that this is a review of a normal car. So... the 5.9 litre V12 pumps out 592 bhp and will do 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, while the lack of a roof means that open top is a permanent format! So don't get me wrong, this car is slower than a DBS, but you should be able to keep pace with a Vantage or DB11.
The exterior is painted in white, which is not the most shocking or interesting colour, but the tasteful red interior makes up for it! Red interiors have never been my thing, but on a high end car, and when done properly, it has a brilliant effect.
Unfortunately, Aston Martin has not published the boot space of this model. Tut tut.

So what do you think? Would you buy this, or something else?
