Zagato Maserati Mostro Debut At The Villa d'Este Elegance Contest
|   Thursday, June 18, 2015
Zagato is an elegant guest known at the Villa d'Este competition in Italy, and each time it comes up with something special. In 2015 the Italian coach builder brings an extravagant model called Mostro.

Zagato Mostro is the name of the model specially prepared for the 2015 edition of the prestigious Villa d'Este Elegance Contest, which takes place every year on Lake Como Italy. In the past years, Zagato has presented at Villa d'Este concepts like Lamborghini 5-95, and BMW Zagato Roadster, so you can easily tell that the Italian company already has experience in terms of extravagant models.


The event is organized BMW and held in Cernobbio, Italy, near the beautiful lake Como.
The Elegance Contest from this year will be honored by masterpieces which wrote history, such as the Isotta Fraschini 8A SS, Rolls-Royce Phantom from generation I to VI, Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, Mercedes-Benz 710 SS, Ferrari Dino 206 S and the latest luxury concept cars: Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6, Touring Berlinetta Lusso, Aston Martin DBX concept, Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4, and even the ambitious Glickenhaus SCG003C # 001.

What will the absolute novelties be? BMW promises that it will present a fascinating concept called 3.0 CSL Hommage - a tribute to the legendary BMW 3.0 CSL. Also, the Zagato workshop delights our eyes with a monstrous V8 coupe.

The new Zagato Mostro celebrates Maserati centenary, and is named after a model built by this coach builder in 1957 that earned the nickname "il Mostro". More specifically, we are talking about homage brought to the Maserati 450S Zagato Coupe, designed in 1957 and driven by Sir Stirling Moss to race 24 hours of Le Mans. This "il Mostro" was among the most powerful front wheel drive cars until 1990!

According to the official press release, the Zagato Mostro is built on a hybrid chassis that combines carbon fiber with a tubular steel structure, while power is provided by a Maserati V8 engine which drives the rear wheels through a semi-automatic six-speed transmission. The body is made entirely of carbon fiber and the engine output would be somewhere around 460 hp.

Zagato Mostro can take pride with an exemplary weight too, tallying only 1,000 kilograms. The wheel rims, with classic design, have a diameter of 19 inches and are shod with 255 mm tires on the front side and 295 mm wide on the rear part.

The manufacturer says the new Mostro was designed to be used on race tracks, just like the original model, but there is the possibility to homologate the car for public roads. In total, the Zagato Monstro will be built by hand in only 5 copies. But these copies have already been ordered by fanatic Italian customers.

The supercar's price was not announced, so we suggest mere mortals continue to admire this model in the image gallery. It looks very sexy, and imposes itself with a highly unusual look, beautifully done in the style of the original model.
