Last year, Aston Martin revealed that its Zagato line would receive a shooting brake variant of the Vanquish, issuing a teaser photo of the model in red. Then the company went silent, leaving many wondering what happened. Apparently there was no reason to worry, as Aston Martin just released a pretty robust series of images highlighting the vehicle’s bold styling.

With this much fanfare, it must be getting close to launch.

The vehicle, which uses the old Vanquish S platform, makes use of a naturally-aspirated, 5.9-liter V12 and comes with a handful of mechanical upgrades to the steering and suspension. Like the Vanquish Zagato and Vanquish Volante Zagato, the Shooting Brake will be limited to just 99 units. And, if the previous Zagato-designed models are anything to go by, it should be ludicrously expensive.

Visually, the Shooting Brake leans on the classic Aston design but incorporates numerous less-traditional elements. There’s a lot of two-tone paint, including a tapered roof that’s split right down the middle to let in some extra sunlight, and podded taillights that feel a little off-brand for Aston but right on the money for Zagato.

The interior is also receives a bit of the old Zagato flair, with little Zs embroidered all over the seat leather. But the real star is the carbon fiber adorned luggage compartment just behind those seats. While not cavernous, the space should be sufficient for housing whatever items two people might need on an extended road trip or journey to the shops.

Aston Martin still hasn’t said when the Shooting Brake will make its official debut, let alone when production and customer deliveries might start. However, we would assume this most-recent batch of photos are indicative of the wait being nearly over.
