2014 Zagato Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake

AstonShootingBrake

The famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato Atelier is celebrating its 95th Anniversary with this dynamic design for Aston Martin. Despite the “moniker” Shooting Brake, the aggressively aerodynamic shape is more reminiscent of a fastback with a Kamm style back.

BRITISH ORIGIN, ITALIAN TRADITION

The Shooting Brake body has had different meanings throughout automotive history. Since the 60s, however, it commonly refers to a luxury coupĂ©, rigorously-styled with two doors and a functional boot space. This body was created to accommodate drivers’ sport and leisure passions, such as hunting or golf, while providing the exciting driving experience of a fast and exclusive GT. Nearly all of the most prestigious English marques include a Shooting Brake model (or an “authorized” conversion) in their model line.

95 YEARS OF ZAGATO

Ugo Zagato began his coachbuilding career in 1919 when he left the Officine Aeronautiche Pomilio, where he excelled for four years, to return to Milan to set up his own business. He did so with the bold intent of transferring sophisticated constructional techniques that combined lightness with strength from the aeronautic to the automotive sector.
