Zagato Lamborghini 5-95, The Model Initially Considered To Be Just A Concept, Just Received Series Version
|   Sunday, August 17, 2014
Lamborghini and Zagato have a long history of working together. From this relationship spanning 50 years the latest result came bearing this form: Lamborghini Zagato 5-95.The Italian coach builder Zagato will build four series copies of the 5-95 model based on the Lamborghini Gallardo. The first of these is yellow colored and was officially presented.

The Lamborghini Zagato 5-95, a model built by Italian coach builder on the Gallardo platform exhibited at the Villa d'Este to celebrate 95 years since the founding of the Italian brand has become a supercar series.


This Zagato designed model evokes an instant classic look, expressing the purest display of the unique Zagato coach-building skills. One glance shows us right away noticeable differences between what a Gallardo looks and what Zagato, has done to the 5-95 model.

Initially, the orange specimen exhibited at Pebble Beach was considered a unique car that had no chance to be produced in series and was sold to a hobbyist. Now, Zagato representatives presented the second 5-95 series, which will be followed later by three more units. The copy presented was yellow with a pearl finish and is already paid for by a collector who chose to remain anonymous, while the first was Albert Spiess.

The Zagato 5-95 is built on the Gallardo LP570-4 platform and has all the classic features of models made ​​by the Italian coach builder. The ceiling has two bumps to accommodate two passenger helmets, the windscreen is extended in a manner similar to the Lancia Stratos and the side ventilation slots remind us of the old Raptor concept in 1996, based on Lamborghini Diablo. The back design is characterized by the rear bumper and how the exhaust, LED taillights and ventilation slot mounted above the rear window are integrated.

The Gallardo LP570-4 has been the last version of the supercar from Sant'Agata before the release of the Huracan, its replacement. Like the Gallardo, the Huracan has an aspirated V10 engine, but the 5.2-liter unit now sees 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and a torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm, besides the fact that it complies with Euro 6 standards. For the first time for Lamborghini, the model has a dual clutch transmission called Lamborghini Doppia Frizione which has seven gears and delivers power to all four wheels.

Expect a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h (62 mph) in less than 4.0 seconds as well as a top speed that exceeds 201 mph or 324 km/h.
Zagato has also brought dramatic bespoke vehicles to Villa d'Este, a list that has names like the BMW Zagato Coupe and Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa, since 2006. Some of the luxurious Zagato creations are actually offered for sale, although not in large numbers. These include the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, of which 150 were built, and the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale 2011, which was to be made in only 9 copies.

The price is not available, but expect it to cost a lot especially since the base model is an already expensive car like the Gallardo.
