New York, New York | Lamborghini and Zagato back at it again this time with the 5-95 Supercar. The relationship from these two dates way back to 1965 with the Lamborghini 3500 GTZ which was introduce at the London Auto Show that year. Today we are giving another monster in form of an orange like super sports car. Lamborghini and Zagato set out to build a real contemporary collectible car.
Albert Spiess, one of the most significant Lamborghini collectors, who hold some of the most amazing cars ever came out of Lamborghini, his love for cars are amazing his collection includes Alfa Romeo S.Z. from 1990 and the R.Z. from 1993, Aston Martin V8 Zagato from 1985 and the V12 Zagato from 2012. Albert Spiess gave Zagato the chance to dress the most successful model of all time from the Bull’s company history, in order to create a modern collectible car:
The Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato is base off the Gallardo LP570-4 one of our favorite ride of all time and Lamoborgini number one seller in the pass 50 years. Andrea Zagato Spoke on why they choose the Gallardo
“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.”
Albert Spiess comments:
“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.”
The 5-95 Zagato is certainly a collector dream come true. The design defines the work of art motto, it takes Lamborgini and Zagato to a new level in terms of design for the next future years. The car features many of Zagato past work like the Continuous Glass Surfaces, which was launch by Zagato from the early 40s. The Continuous Glass Surface a technical theme surrounds the pillar-less body of the car to enhanced the beauty and looks of an amazing car.
The side intakes, following the Lamborghini Raptor, have been visually reduced to the minimum thanks to an air scoop on the roof as well as additional apertures concealed in the glass surfaces. The air scoop is functionally integrated with the double bubble roof, a signature of Zagato design, directing the cooling to the intake manifold.
The monolithic rear volume is chopped off by the typical truncated tail and reveals the brutality of mechanical components protruding from the area such as tail lamps heat release, aerodynamic features and the active spoiler.
There isn’t a sole gram of fat in a Lamborghini. It is thin and athletic, having a lot in common with the surfaces of a Zagato body, true to the rule that a car is as much efficient as it is compact.
Zagato designers and engineers aimed to press the rear towards the engine and to increase the proportion of the front. As a result, the 5-95 Zagato’s volumes express a sense of energy through fluid and organic surfaces that recall an animal’s muscles as it is ready to leap forward.
