ZAGATO CAR HISTORY

Car review on ZAGATO

Zagato belongs to a select band of Italian coachbuilder dynasties. It is one of the oldest of all, founded by Ugo Zagato in 1919 in Milan, and has an illustrious past. Its heyday undoubtedly came in (lie 1950s and 60s when it created superb coach built bodies for Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati, Aston Martin, Bristol and Lancia.


Brothers Elio and Gianni Zagato set up a new factory in 1962 and eventually expanded into other areas such as electric and armored cars. A unique Zagato characteristic is the "double-bubble" roof, originally intended to clear die heads of passengers in its very low bodies, but this has since become an unmistakable trademark. By the 1970s, Zagato's importance had faded somewhat but its fortunes revived with the 1986 Aston Martin Zagato project, the Alfa Romeo SZ, Lancia Hyena, Nissan Auteeli Stelvio and series production of the Maserati Biturbo.


Zagato’s self-financed dream cars have been relatively rare and rather inconsistent in their level of satisfaction. Alongside such sublime pieces as (lie Zeta 6, there have been some real disasters like the Stelvio and Lagonda Rapide. Zagato was forced to reform for the 1990s as SZ Design with Andrea Zagato at the helm.

 


From Zeta 6 to Raptor

The 1983 Zeta 6 can be singled out as perhaps Zagato's best recent design. This two-plus-two coupe was based on the 2.5-litre Alfa Romeo GTV-six. Chief stylist Giuseppe Mittino extracted a classically graceful style from this project and gave it the Zagato trademark of a distinctive double-bubble roof. It was this car, seen by Aston Martin's director Victor Gauntlett at the 1983 Geneva Motor Show, which led directly to the Aston Martin Zagato project.


Zagato started to go off the boil in the late 1980s. First it presented a vision of a future Aston Martin Lagonda called the Rapide, which was so poor that Aston Martin boss Victor Gauntlett took die unusual step of distancing his company from anything to do with it. Then came the Stelvio AZ1 project for Autech’ a subdivision of Nissan. Unveiled in 1989, it was a two-plus-two coupe seemingly designed from the wing mirrors out (the front wings bulged out to accommodate them). Incredibly, it actually reached series production for the Japanese market. Zagato followed this exercise up with the more acceptable Gavia, Bambu and Seta projects, plus a Testarossa-based super car called the Z93.


Perhaps marking a rebirth of the Zagato (or SZ Design) name was its 1996 Geneva showing and possible production model, the Raptor - its name recalling one of the villains of Steven Spielberg's dinosaur epic, Jurassic Park. lts proportions were exactly right, its Lamborghini Diablo V-twelve engine and four-wheel-drive system suitably exotic and its flop-forward double-bubble canopy scintillating enough to engage the imagination. It justifies a link with the early, classic Zagato design that makes this carrozzeria a legend in car design.
