Joining the Sweptail is a car that is the product of one of the oldest partnerships in automotive design history; Aston Martin and Zagato. This relationship stretches back more than six decades, kicked off by the gorgeous DB4 GT Zagato, and is still flourishing to this day. The Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster, on display here, is the very latest example.
The Speedster is one-of-28 due to be built, combining a beautiful hand-crafted open-top body with the 592bhp 6.0-litre V12 found in Aston Martin’s Vanquish. It’s also part of a family of Vanquish-based Zagato models, including the Coupé, Volante and Shooting Brake.
Representing McLaren will be perhaps the most striking example of its latest Ultimate Series road car; the very first Senna to leave the McLaren Technical Centre in Woking. Only 500 Sennas will be built, but this car is finished in a totally unique ‘MSO Aurora Blue’ and MSO ‘Anniversary White’ paintjob that took the team at McLaren Special Operations more than 600 hours to complete. Powering this unique Senna is McLaren’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, producing 789bhp and 590lb-ft of torque.
