That is sweet! I'm assuming that lives at the Scottsdale Auto Museum since it has been mentioned they have a huge Zagato collection.

Yes, it does. Owned by Mr. Walton. I saw it when he brought it to Scottsdale Ferrari for service when I was picking up my 550. While unique, it looks alot like a Panoz. Sorry, but it just doesn't do it for me.

550 Zagato

The 550 Zagato shown above does live in AZ but not at the Scottsdale Auto Museum. The guys there have seen it and when the car was shipped here the original body panels were sent also. Kind of strange seeing the old body cut off and stacked up next to the shinning new Z.

For $1.6M, you could have Zagato design and build another one-off on a 550 or 575 chassis.

As far as I know two cars have been made.
Richard,

Is this photoshop-image from supercars which had been replaced by an Zagato 575 Coupe?

RHD chassis no. N9 sold at Bonhams for only 353,500 inclusive of Buyer's Premium. It's interesting why so small price? The price of the new 550 GTZ was over 1,5 million dollars as I remember

Right hand drive could be one of the reasons.
Also, prices mentioned on the internet and in magazines are often much higher than what the customer actually paid.

The took their time to build this car.

Quote:
By May 2008 a total of only 900 miles had been covered from new and in September/October that same year work on the car's transformation commenced at Zagato.
...
'N9' was completed and returned to the UK in August 2010
And they say that building a 550 GTZ should take 'only' 5 months:

Quote:
Zagato's transformation of the 'ordinary' 550 to 550 Barchetta Zagato took all of five months to complete.
I also wondered about the fact if there are 3 of 5 550 GTZ's build. But I guess there are only three. Why?
They refer to this car as "Chassis no. N9". So I guess N1-N6 are the six 575 GTZ's and then there are 3 550 GTZ's build (USA, Canada & UK). Also they say that this is the last GTZ build:

Quote:
Zagato has confirmed that no more 550 GTZs will be made, making this the last series of special-bodied Ferraris to be built at the carrozzeria's own factory and 'N9' a possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of these unique cars.

But it's only RHD 550 GTZ. So it's very rare car. And only 353,500...
