Italian coachbuilding company Zagato has officially unveiled a one-off for a client based in Europe at the Chantilly Art & Elegance show in France. The car, called the Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake, features a shooting brake-style rear with the profile showing a roofline that melds almost seamlessly with the rear window. The unveiling also marks a significant point in Zagato’s history as it turns 95 this year.

Not much was revealed about the technical specifications of the car but it’s safe to assume that everything underneath its reworked skin is similar to those found on current production Aston Martins, with the 6.0 litre V12 most likely providing power to the rear wheels.

This would be the second model that Zagato has unveiled this year, with the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato Concept making an appearance earlier this year. Where it differs from the Aston Martin featured here is that the Lamborghini was then given the green light to be put in a limited production run of five units.

Aston Martin has said that the unveiling of this car brings a close to its centennial celebrations, with two earlier models also commissioned by Zagato, the Aston Martin DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial and the Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial.
