The Ercole Spada issue.

As already mentioned, when I was recently at Autoworld Brussels they were having a small exhibit on the works of Ercole Spada. He was chief stylist at Zagato during the most of the 60’s, where he penned some of his most recognizable (and Zagato’s !) designs. After leaving Zagato, he went to BMW (5 and 7 -series), to IDEA and back to Zagato. Currently he works for his own studio (with his son) – Spadaconcept.

First was the Aston DB4 GT Zagato – my favourite (yes, I’m predictable).


The stunning Alfa-Romeo Giulia TZ (for Tubolare Zagato). In 2010, Zagato come up with a very interesting sequel, the TZ3 Corsa and Stradale, based on a Dodge Viper (!)


There was also the less exotic Alfa-Romeo GT 1300/1600 Junior Zagato, using the mechanicals of the popular 105/115 series.



The Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato.


Finally, the Lancia Flaminia Sport Zagato, for me, the less appealing of all. Interestingly, different versions of the Flaminia Coupé were built by Pinifarina, Touring and Zagato – People were spoiled for choice !

The most beautiful…

Carrying on the theme from Autoworld Brussels, there’s more that I would like to show. Today let’s look at the most beautiful /gorgeous / jaw-dropping cars on display (according to me, obviously…)

First is the Aston-Martin DB4 GT Zagato, presented as part of a small Ercole Spada exhibit. No more words needed, really…


Followed by the Bertone designed Lamborghini Espada


A Maserati… model unknown and not shown… can anyone chime in ?


And finally my favorite, the ultra rare Bizzarrini (yep, another Italian) AMX /3 Spyder. Pure lust…
