Aston Martin?s latest supercar concept, the Vanquish Zagato

Aston Martin has just unveiled what gets my vote for the most beautiful car of the year: the Vanquish Zagato Concept.

LED lights it debuted on the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan. Its winglike mirrors are inspired by the One-77 Aston; its sculpted rear and retractable spoiler evoke the best assets of the DB11. Aston did not respond to questions regarding when?if ever?it will produce the Vanquish Zagato Concept.
