Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato
Take a Lamborghini Gallardo and let Italian design firm Zagato have at it and you end up with the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato. It’s a classic Lamborghini covered with a unique carbon fiber and glass combination. Purists may dismiss the alterations to the classic Gallardo lines, but never the less; the 5–95 makes a statement.
Originally the Lamborhini Zagato was commissioned by a Swiss collector as a one-off design and was unveiled in May, 2014. Later word came out that a limited edition might be produced of this supercar and a yellow monster was spotted at the Milan factory.
This probably is the same unit, now sporting Montana plates and discovered at the Scottsdale, AZ Cars and Coffee event on Saturday September 6, 2014.
It was hard to get a full set of pictures with the crowds around it, and the owner actually parked it off to the side amongst some other more routine exotics that are seen at Cars and Coffee.
The Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato commemorates the 95th anniversary of the Milan design firm. Looking at the supercar shows many of the critical common elements found on Zagato designed cars. Plenty of aerodynamic flowing glass and a double bubble roof; with an air scoop to help deliver sufficient air volume for the engine. The hood has an addendum attached closer to the windshield, which is claimed to help make the car more aerodynamic and gives the front end a longer, rakish view.
The Zagato’s “floating” front spoiler is also a unique look, with a love it or leave it attitude. The side intakes on the Zagato are smaller, hence why the roofline now has an air scoop. The rear end is chopped off, making the front end even more pronounced and emphasized. The circular rear taillights are different as well.
Since Zagato is a Milan design firm, nothing mechanical was changed on the Gallardo framework. The GallardoLP 570-4 was the best selling of the Lamborghini models with a 5.2 liter V-10 engine producing 570 horsepower and nearly 400 foot pounds of torque. The outcome is an official Lamorghini supercar, which will be a limited production run.
It’ll be interesting to see how many collectors jump at the chance to get this Gallardo model and what the actual production will be. Any guesses?
