What better occasion to open Zagato’s Centenary than the Kyoto Concours d’Elegance that took place at Nijo Castle, UNESCO heritage site. 33 collectors’ cars, historic and contemporary, clad by the Milanese Atelier, have been evaluated by a high profile international jury. Best of Show: Lamborghini 3500 GTZ (1965) belonging to Bill Pope (USA). Best Italian Award: Fiat 8V Zagato (1955), owner Japanese collector Sato. Contemporary Class winner: Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale (2010) of Japanese collector Shirai. Public’s favourite: Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS (1930) of Albert Wetz (Luxembourg). On Saturday night, at the gala dinner in Tenryu-ji Temple, never opened before to a private function, Karl Friedrich Scheufele, president of the watch division of Chopard, presented the Mille Miglia Classic Chrono Zagato Cento, a 100 piece limited series that will accompany the Milanese Signature marking time throughout this memorable year. We thank the ZagatoClub Japan for the precious cooperation.
