Zagato recently unveiled their bespoke Ferrari 575GTZ at Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance in Italy. Zagato, based in nearby Milan, was commissioned by Japanese collector Yoshiyuki Hayashi to create a new body for his 575M in the style of the 250GTZ Berlinetta.

Despite the same underpinnings as the 575M the whole car has been remodelled, striking a balance between its Fifties forebear and more contemporary Ferraris. Marking the 50th anniversary of the 250GTZ, the 575GTZ uses similar two-tone paintwork over a more voluminous form, the flanks now wrapping under the rocker with enlarged rear haunches and slim side-vents, as on the 250GTZ, while the front also bears graphic resemblance to the 599 GTB and 612 Scaglietti.

The Ferrari 575GTZ will join Hayashi’s extensive private collection, which includes a 250 Spider California, two Daytonas and a 166MM.
