Monterey, Calif. (August 5, 2014) – In honor of Zagato Atelier’s 95th Anniversary Concorso Italiano, known as the world’s largest showing of exotic Italian cars, announced today that it will display eight stunning Zagato Atelier Contemporary Collectibles on Aug. 16 at the Black Horse Golf Course in Seaside, Calif. This will be the first time these cars have ever been shown together.
This exquisite grouping of one-of-a-kind cars will be shown at Concorso Italiano as part of the Zagato Atelier Contemporary Car Display. Each car was conceived and put into production by Andrea and Marella Zagato who represent the third generation of the 95 years old Milanese Atelier. Known for its long-standing partnerships with luxury OEMs manufacturers, the stunning collection of automobiles will include a never before seen in the United States Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato. Flown straight from the factory in Rho, Italy to be delivered to its American owner, the Lamborghini will be the centerpiece of the display and will be shown alongside other Zagato Alfa Romeos, Ferraris and Aston Martins.
“We are honored to have these stunning modern day Zagatos as part of Concorso Italiano’s 95th Anniversary Zagato celebration,” said Tom McDowell, Concorso Italiano President. “This is the first time these contemporary cars have ever been seen together in a grouping, creating a display that is sure to impress car fans of all ages.”
