Celebrate 100 Years Of Zagato’s Daring, Family-Owned Innovation

t’s difficult for a company to stay relevant for a century—harder still if it’s in the business of low-volume, highly-custom industrial design—and yet today the family-run Zagato coachworks is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding. Zagato was a witness to and influencer of the toddling years of the horseless carriage, later aided the rise of Alfa Romeo and Ferrari’s competitive prominence, and despite the entire operation becoming literal rubble during the second world war, the brand managed to become a definitive source of post-war automotive design while earning motorsport clout to the tune of Grand Prix world championships. The designs are heart-attack arresting, but there is more behind the jagged Z than a pretty aluminum curve.
