Italian design house Zagato has a long running tradition of unconventionally modifying the latest offerings from established supercar houses. Zagato doesn’t turn its back on this tradition, though their latest offering is based on the now somehow dated Lamborghini Gallardo.
During this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este Zagato brought to us the new Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato Milano, a car that goes away with the traditional, clear cut, razor-sharp fighter-jet style edges – opting for smooth, rounded, organic-like lines and a “double-mouth” front in the style of the Aston Martin One-77. There are also many design cues that are a “Zagato” trademark, like the “double-bubble” roof.
With such highlights like the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, the Alfa Romeo Romeo TZ or the Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato, the Italian design house has been known for many quirky designs, which many times haven’t been very well received. Because beauty is always a subject of personal opinion and taste, we’ll just let you see our exclusive live pics of the model to judge whether you fall in the “Love” or “Hate” category.
Based on the now extinct Lamborghini Gallardo, the 5-95 Zagato has been signed as a one-off special by a Swiss Lamborghini collector named Albert Spiess, known as an avid fan of rare models or design studies.
