Zagato History

1919 - Founding of the Carrozzeria Zagato

1923 - Founding of Zagato Ltd.

As the First World War came to an end, there was an increasing demand for passenger automobiles. Ugo Zagato started his company at this time utilizing the techniques developed by the aircraft industry during the war to produce cars that were recognized for their high performance, light weight, and rakish, aerodynamically-efficient, streamlined designs.

In collaboration with Alfa Romeo, Fiat, and Lancia, Zagato created a series of legendary racing cars including the Alfa Romeo 1500, the 1750 Gran Sport, and the 2300 AC.

1946 - New Factory Premises in via Giorgini 16 (Milano)

With the advances in technology during and after World War II, automobile performance accelerated rapidlly. As car racing continued after the war, a new category took off - the GT class. Zagato designed cars for Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Abarth, Ferrari and Aston Martin. These cars were know for their avant-garde styling, weight to power ratioes, and aerodynamic lines.

1962 - New Factory Premises in via Arese 30 Rho (Milano)

The company's primary business is producing special design cars in small quantities but they also have built one-of-a-kind and prototype cars for Jaguar, MG, Rolls-Royce, Ford, Volvo, Rover, and Bristol.

Considered by many to be one of the most radical of the Italian coachbuilders, Zagato continues to be successful by building strong ties with car manufacturers such as Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin.
