Zagato's one-off Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake


Specially constructed for a European client, the 1960s-inspired Shooting Brake comes complete with functional trunk space for carrying the likes of golf clubs, fishing gear, or hunting equipment. Unveiled at the Chantilly Art & Elegance show in France, the Zagato Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake also rounds out a series commemorating Aston Martin's 100th anniversary last year, joining the DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial and the DB9 Spider Zagato Centennial.

Essentially a three-door station wagon, the term "shooting brake" is derived from an era when men went out to go shooting in a vehicle primarily used to train horses – known as a "brake".

Though there are no details mentioned by Zagato on the specifications, it is assumed that the Virage's hand-assembled 6.0-liter (actually 5.95 liter, 362 cubic inch) V12 engine delivering 490 hp (365 kW), is still in place and that the its sub 5 second 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time remains largely unaffected.
