Posted: 11/02/2012 in coachbuilding, design, sportscars

Allo stand Zagato, durante l’edizione 2012 della fiera “Auto e Moto d’epoca” a Padova, era esposta una piccola opera d’arte su ruote, uno sforzo congiunto tra l’atelier Zagato e l’azienda Racing Legend Motors, la ricostruzione fedele, accurata su disegni originali, con meccanica originale e con la benedizione della casa madre della gloriosa Porsche 356 Speedster Zagato degli anni 50. Non è una replica ma una “continuazione”. La vettura degli anni 50 andò distrutta durante una competizione, ora grazie a questo sforzo 9 fortunati collezionisti potranno avere nei loro garage un pezzo di storia dell’automobilismo, la massima evoluzione della 356 nata per le competizioni.

During the 2012 edition of the fair “Auto e moto d’epoca” in Padua, at the Zagato stand was exposed a little work of art on wheels, a faithfull reconstruction made using original drawings, original frame and mechanic by Porsche: the Porsche 356 Speedster Zagato. This great result was achieved with the collaboration of Zagato atelier and the company Racing Legend Motors. This car isn’t a replica but a “continuation” approved by Porsche. The first original one was built in the 50s and was destroyed during a competition, now 9 lucky collectors can have in their garage a piece of automotive history, the ulitmate evolution of 356 born to race.
