It is not often when we come across a camouflage vehicle that has already made its official debut. However, we are making an exception by showcasing one such model. It is dubbed as Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake that made its debut two years back in August 2017. It had a striking presence while being filled at gas station somewhere in Europe. Just like other Vanquish S based Zagato, Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is limited to just 99 units. Additionally, more exclusive Speedster is limited to just 28 units.

Now, the question arises what Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake was doing in wild in camouflage. We are guessing that it was undertaking WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) which was enforced recently. It had left hand drive configuration and wore UK plate. Even though the vehicle had provision for four exhaust pipes, only two were installed. It might be because Aston Martin’s engineers working in the Shooting Brake emission. Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake was revealed way back when NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) was standard norm.

Another reason why Shooting Brake was wandering in cold is because they haven’t delivered all the models. The remaining vehicles are going through stringent WLTP norms and passing it. It makes more sense considering Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake production of vehicle began somewhere in the year 2018 even though it was revealed in 2017. All Vanquish models come with naturally aspirated V12 engine that delivers 580hp. Do share your views with regards of the design of this Shooting Brake model.
