If money is no object and you like to own rare cars the ultimate dream is to have a renowned Italian car design studio to create a one-off just for you ... which is what Albert Spiess asked Zagato to do for him using a Lamborghini Gallardo as a base.
Mr Spiess already owns several very special Lamborghini models but the possibility of a one-off didn't sound too bad, in the end it didn't really become an unique car in the strictest sense, but still a one of five is really impressive too ... and recently Zagato unveiled the second 5-95 of their intended total production of five units.
The Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato name is quickly explained in fact, we are talking about a car that celebrated the 95th anniversary of Zagato in 2014 and only 5 will be made, so there is no rocket science behind the naming convention, taking the impressive Gallardo LP570-4 as a base also ensured this Zagato will be as fast as it looks.
A lot has been written about the styling of this Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato, I guess you either love it or hate it ... the least you can say is that it sure looks different with those two round taillights and a quartet of exhaust pipes built into the rear bumper.
I for one rather like that roof mounted air intake while I'm not a fan of the front as it reminds me too much of the Aston Martin One-77 ... it doesn’t look bad, but it just doesn't suit a Lamborghini, still I have to admit I like the look of this yellow one better than the first production model finished in matte orange metallic.
On the inside the Gallardo base car does look obvious again, while the outside is completely modified by Zagato it looks like the interior is mostly left alone ... and having a light grey leather upholstery inside a bright yellow metallic car just isn't the most perfect combination if you ask me.
Still I'm sure the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato will sell out quickly, can't wait to see what shade the other three in the production run will look like.
