To celebrate the centenary of the Milanese coachbuilder in style, this year's stylish Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance poster highlights three of Zagato's greatest designs: the Alfa Romeo TZ1, an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 and the Aston Martin DB4 GTZ.
All three Koh-i-Noor size diamonds...!
But, as we know, size isn't everything...
What about our sparkling little Lancia Appia Sport Zagato which emanates convincingly all the characteristics of a pure Zagato design? Wouldn't you agree this SWB Appia Zagato is the charming little sister of the very sexy Aston Martin DB4 GTZ?
Lancia pretends 200 were built (for homologation purposes), but the Italian Lancia Appia Club doubts this number and thinks the production number is probably closer to 150.
Chassis number 812.05-1119 was almost forgotten in a vast Napoli collection until finally discovered by our friend and Zagato director Paolo di Taranto to the exitement of the very active Italian Lancia Appia Club.
Soon and with the help of these very enthousiast classic car friends, this Appia Sport Zagato was fully sorted and back on the road.
Our classic car workshop, which in the past had the opportunity to concentrate on several other SWB Appia Sport Zagato examples, took care of the final detailing and is proud to bring this sparkling little diamond now on the classic car market.
And... to paraphrase Marilyn Monroe: diamonds are the classic car enthousiasts best friend!
