You probably already know how drop-dead gorgeous the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato is. Now the team have designed a shooting brake and a speedster to go alongside it.

A Shooting Brake and a Speedster model are both set to be unveiled, with 99 'brakes and only 28 Speedsters to be built. These add to the existing run of 99 Coupes and 99 Volantes. 

The Speedster will be a more hardcore Volante that has a double-bubble styled rear, behind each seat. Like the rest of the body these will be made of carbon-fibre and are designed to mimic Zagato's trademark double-bubble roof. Unfortunately the Speedster has already sold 100% of its run, with deliveries starting in 2018. 

The Shooting Brake is a bit lighter on details, with only one photo that really shows it off. AM say the extended roof features double-bubble surfacing "complete with glass inlays to let light flood into the cockpit." It's still a two-door though. There's a tailored luggage set in the back to make you feel even more special - if a one-of-99 Zagato didn't already accomplish that.

“Why create a family of Zagatos,” asked Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. “Well, many of our customers want different things. Some prefer the purity of a Coupe, but others love the idea of something more extreme, like the Speedster. And yes, some of them have ordered one example of each.”

The family use the Vanquish S as a base, with a naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 packing 433kW and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
