Spyker Re-Born As Bespoke One-Off Lamborghini 5-95 By Zagato

How about this? A Lamborghini Gallardo that look like the Spyker C12 that showed up at the Geneva Auto Show a long time ago in 2007. This bespoke Lamborghini Gallardo is given a super maker over by Italian coachbuilding company, Zagato. Named, Lamborghini 5-95 by Zagato, custom-made Lambo is commissioned by Albert Spiess, who has the unofficial designation as “one of the most significant Lamborghini collectors” in the world. The car is set to receive its world premiere this weekend at the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como in Italy.

Lamborghini 5-95 by Zagato

The car is an official collaboration between Lamborghini and Zagato. This is also the 95th year Zagato is in the business of making coaches. The business was started in 1919 by Ugo Zagato. In the 1920’s they worked with Alfa Romeo and then expanded to work with almost all the big names in the auto industry that include Ferrari, Bugatti, Maserati, and Rolls-Royce.

The base for the Lamborghini 5-95 by Zagato comes from Gallardo LP570-4. Zagato spiced-up its exteriors that ended up looking a lot like the Spyker C12 (above). In a statement, Andrea Zagato explained the reason behind selecting 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.”

Understandably Spiess is very happy about his new sporty ride, “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.”
