The Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato has been officially released today at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como in Italy. Based on the now extinct Lamborghini Gallardo, this project is based on an official collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and Zagato, commissioned by renowned collector Albert Spiess with the purpose of creating a real contemporary collectible car.
Albert Spiess: “I always appreciated the ability of Zagato to create timeless lines with a forceful visual impact. I believe that a sensual design inspired by nature, together with the best technology, strike a perfect balance that is possible to achieve only in Italy. The 5-95 will be a fundamental piece of my collection.”
“We have chosen the Gallardo because it is the most sensational project in Lamborghini’s history. An extraordinary car, perfect in engineering terms, that has brought the image of ‘the Bull’ from a ‘cottage industry’ to a worldwide major industrial reality. The Gallardo production figures exceeded the whole Lamborghini production since its foundation.” – Andrea Zagato said in a press release.
