Zagato Atelier attended the 2014 edition of Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este with two modern collectible cars: Kazunari Shirai’s Aston Martin DBS Coupé Centennial and Albert Spiess’s Lamborghini 5-95. Both competed in the Prototypes and Concepts class.

For the entire weekend on the shores of lake Como it was possible to admire (on Saturday in Villa d’Este and on Sunday in Villa Erba), some important historical Zagato collectibles: the 1932 Maserati V4 with a 16 cylinders engine (this is the only original one unit in existance) and the 1954 Maserati A6G54 in the special Maserati Class; in the Fuoriserie class the Fiat 132 Aster Zagato, a show car introduced at the 1972 Turin Auto Show.

The Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este award went to the 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato/Aprile. Mr. Albert Spiess himself was also prized with the Best of Show award for his 1956 Maserati 450 Sport.
