Zagato was recently at Uniques Special Ones International Concours d’Elegance in Florence with a great display of cars. There were more than 82 entrants, but 27 were Zagato bodied cars, which overviewed more than 90 years of the Milanese Atelier’s story. The result of the event was great. The Italian coachbuilder won “Best of Show” and “Press Award” for two Zagato cars.
Ferrari 250 GT Zagato – chassis number 0515GT – owned by American Zagato collector David Sydorick was prized with Best of Show award at Uniques Special Ones International Concours d’Elegance in Florence. Two different juries (both technical and stylistic) voted it the best one among 82 extraordinary collectible cars. During the final contest the 1956 250 GTZ was chosen among a 1938 Bugatti Type 57S Cabriolet and the 1962 Ferrari 268 SP.
Mr. Sydorick’s 250 GT Zagato also won all the prizes in its class (Class 9 – The Gentleman Driver’s Choice): Best of Class for Originality, Best of Class for Style and Overall Best of Class. In second and third place, two more Zagatos: 1952 Fiat 1100 E Berlinetta Zagato and 1953 Fiat 8V Zagato.
Unique Special Ones gave space also to special modern and show cars. 2006 Ferrari 575 GT Coupé Zagato was awarded with the Press award, which was presented by Gentleman magazine Director Franz Botré. Marella Zagato, Andrea Zagato’s wife, was on the catwalk at the wheel of one of rarest modern Ferraris. “The 575 – said Mr. Botré – enhances Ferrari 250 GT Zagato’s tradition on a modern take”.
The complete lineup of Zagato cars also featured a 2011 Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale, 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato, and 1932 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Testa Fissa Zagato.
