Lamborghini L595 Zagato Roadster Surfaces Ahead Of Possible Debut At Concorso d’Eleganza

A mysterious Lamborghini-based Zagato roadster has surfaced on the company’s website.

First noticed by Carscoops reader Paul, the roadster is listed as a “2018 Lamborghini L595 Zagato.” The company hasn’t previously disclosed the vehicle but it appears to be a roadster version of the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato which was introduced in 2014.

We’ve reached out to the company for more information but, judging by its name and appearance, it’s likely a limited edition follow up to the coupe which was introduced at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este four years ago.

While the company’s website only shows one image of the car, it will apparently remain pretty faithful to the original model.

As you can see, the roadster will have unique fascias and bespoke lighting units which appear identical to the 5-95. However, the car’s distinctive roof has been removed and replaced by an open air setup complete with a unique engine cover.

Little else is known about the car but the original model was based on the Gallardo LP570-4 and was commissioned by Lamborghini collector Albert Spiess. The car helped to celebrate Zagato’s 95th anniversary and was powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produced 570 hp (425 kW) and 537 Nm (397 lb-ft) of torque.

This reportedly enabled the all-wheel drive model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).

While it seems odd that Zagato would wait four years to introduce the roadster variant, we could learn more about the car next month as the 2018 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este takes place on the shores of Lake Como on May 25th.

    • Like a lot of modern cars (most Fords for example)… and almost all Zagato cars.

        I suppose so, however, I feel as though it looks far more fish-like than most others.
