The 5-95 one-off supercar has been created for Albert Spiess, one of the most significant Lamborghini worldwide collectors, and honors Zagato's 95th anniversary. It will debut at the 2014 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in the Concept Cars and Prototypes' class.
Under the body lies a Gallardo LP 570-4 platform, visually pushed forward due to the striving front fascia and a wind deflector at the bottom of the windshield that lenghtens the hood.
"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," said Andrea Zagato.
Continuous glass surfaces - a technical and stylistic theme launched by Zagato in the end of the 40s on the Panoramic bodies and re-applied in the 80s - surround the pillar-less body and, similarly to aeronautical cockpits, reduce noise and improve aerodynamics.
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.
