This rather nice looking Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster was probably the most expensive car lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife today. And that’s even including two very blue McLaren MSO-kitted 720s… (more on those later)
The Zagato Speedster uses the big naturally-aspirated 5.9ltr V12 of the regular Vanquish, but with an extra few ponies stuffed in, for around 600 horsepower.
