    As a Barchetta owner, I'm sorry to say that I don't care for the lines on this Zagato-bodied car. At all. But, to each their own. Looks like a BMW Z8.

    No crazy about the views, but the front-on is not bad. I do like the roof--wish I had one.

    Nice Design, somebody can like somebody don't, as any consideration in the field of aestetics. i like it. Mr harada had done again his miracle keeping out a great design car looking to all past model of italian bodywork cars inline with the OEM tradition and staying on the 575-550 package.
    Great and stunning result. Thank you again Nori.

    All other things a bugle. Probally images are stolen or illeagy leaked from sombody in next days going in heavy legal position since Coachbuilders and Automotive producers usually
    get this kind of projects under confidentially agreements till the final model (if any) will be on sale.

    Best regards nice images.

    The whole situation is crap. I knew about these cars back in 2007 and posted a photoshop which Zagato had me remove. I suspect that these cars are not approved by Ferrari hence all the litigation.

    As far as I know two cars have been made.

    Ah! That photoshop was yours? I noticed on supercars dot net that the photoshop had been replaced by an ordinary Zagato 575 Coupe.

    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.

    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.

    Is this photoshop-image from supercars which had been replaced by an Zagato 575 Coupe?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

    And they say that building a 550 GTZ should take 'only' 5 months:

    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:

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

    and 353 for a zagato body... that sounds CHEAP. I can only imagine what this car will be worth in the future.

    Photos you say. OK, here you go. From Chelsea Sept 2010. Thanks to Sy for letting me use.
    Guide price was £800,000 to £1,200,000. Someone took a bath at £353k.
    The one in the photos was the only RHD made. The other 5 were LHD.
    Neither Zagato or Bertone styling is to my taste. Much prefer PininFarina

    For 1.6m you can buy a Pagani Zonda F roadster and still have change to buy a 550 Maranello...

    Sorry, the Zagato Maranello's are nothing short of hideous unfortunately (but then, improving upon perfection is fairly hard!).

    I've never been a huge fan of the Zagato cars. I don't find them to be ugly, I just think the price isn't justified. What is the market for this car today? Still crazy money?
