Looking back at the charm of the Lamborghini Marzal classic concept car

At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, perhaps the Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder and Terzo Millennio are a row of Lamborghini cars that most attract the attention of visitors. But that is not the only thing that is interesting in there.

There was something special about the appearance of the Lamborghini P200 Marzal concept car that was re-displayed by these Italian premium car manufacturer after being exhibited at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. Yes, at the same event, 51 years later Marzal's looks still attracted the attention of the visitors at these international automotive event.

As reported by Carscoops, this concept car is the result of Lamborghini's collaboration with Bertone, one of the famous Italian coachbuilders in 60s to 70s and designed by Nuccio Bertone and Marcello Gandini as a vehicle capable of accommodating four passengers.

They designed Marzal with a gullwing-style door, which was mostly made of glass, although that didn't suit Ferruccio Lamborghini's taste, as he believed that a woman's legs shouldn't be there for all to see.

Even so, its features have been likened to features in several other Lamborghini, including the Lamborghini Espada which launched in 1968. The car has many similarity ranging from the exterior, interior to the dashboard.

The Lamborghini Marzal is equipped with a 2.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 175 hp, and the engine's power is only half of the Lamborghini Miura that was coming from the same era. Those engine's power is channeled to the rear wheels through 5-speed manual transmission system.

Unlike other concept cars at the Geneva Motor Show, the visitors are allowed to browse the interior features, steering wheel, engine parts to the rear trunk of the Lamborghini Marzal as close as possible.
The Lamborghini concept car that is more than 50 years old is already owned by a private automotive collector who got it from an auction event in 2011 for US $2 million or around Rp.26 billion. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEW ATLAS | CARSCOOPS]
