At the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, Lamborgini and Zagato brought to life the 5-95, a real contemporary collectivle car. Based on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4, the new Zagato features a body that expresses typical key values of an instant classic. The strong themes that dominate the design of the 5-95 Zagato are the volume of the front fender and the rear end that starts from the center of the car.
The front end also features a floating spoiler that takes inspiration from the Lamborghini Raptor Zagato. In addition, there is a firewall in carbon fiber that conceals the front air intakes. The pillar-less body is similar to those found on aeronautical cockpits and reduces noises and improves aerodynamics.
From the side, we find new air intakes that follow the Lamborghini Raptor. The new side air intakes were reduced to the minimum due to the fact that the 5-95 also comes with an air scoop on the roof as well as additional apertures concealed in the glass surfaces.
Just like on the other Zagato-designed models, the 5-95 comes with the well-known signature double bubble roof. The rear end is dominated by the LED tail lamps and by the new active spoiler.
According to the press release, the 5-95 Zagato features fluid and organic surfaces that recall an animal’s muscles as it is ready to leap forward. What’s more interesting is the new wind deflector found at the base of the windscreen.
This is a very precise aeronautical function as it improves the wind flow in the windscreen wiper area. In the same way, the rear volume has been slightly reduced introducing a "coda tronca" (truncated tail) to emphasize the perception of the leap.
