Limited edition model shows off a more practical side

The first images of the interior of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake were revealed overnight.

Thanks to the elongated roof line and rear hatch, the car's practicality will be improved via more luggage space. Although there's significantly more interior space, the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake remains a two-seater vehicle.

While garden-variety wagons typically have flat floors for maximum flexibility, the Vanquish shooting brake's boot has a raised carbon-fibre floor, likely to allow owners to store valuable items away from prying eyes.

A carbon-fibre brace looks beautiful, and should enhance structural rigidity, but probably means you'll have to find another way to get that 17th century Venetian study table home from Antiques Roadshow. 

The shooting brake also features Zagato's Z logo embroidered onto the seats, and plenty of brown leather and carbon-fibre trim. A unique V-shaped skylight should ensure the interior is well lit.

In addition to giving us our first glimpse of the shooting brake's interior, Aston Martin has also shown the world what the car looks like in white. Last year's first official press photos all featured a red car.

Just 99 Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brakes will be made. Aston Martin's first series production wagon is part of a series of products designed to help the Italian design firm celebrate it centenary.
