The original Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato, unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este back in May, was intended to be a one off car commissioned by Swiss car collector Albert Speiss. An unexpected demand for the car inspired Lamborghini to build an additional four, and they’ve just revealed the second car in an eye-catching shade of yellow.
Zagato and Lamborghini have a brief history, with the Italian coachbuilding firm building only one car for the marque way back in 1965, the 3500 GTZ. Feruccio Lamborghini preferred Bertone designs, so this Zagato-Lamborghini collaboration is a bit special.
The 5-95 is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4, but features an entirely different body with all-new styling. A reshaped, gaping front grille is present in place of the Gallardo’s sharp fins and Zagato managed to integrate its signature double bubble roof. Out back, unique round taillights and four tiny exhaust tips make sure you’ll never be mistaking this for a Gallardo, or anything else.
Mechanically, the 5-95 Zagato remains the same as the standard Gallardo. That’s just fine though, because it still has 562 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque on tap from its 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Power is sent to all four wheels through the same 6-speed Egear automatic transmission and 0-60 mph will happen in a touch over three seconds.
