Zagato made the Mostro five units only

Zagato, the renowned Italian coachbuilder specialist, has recently unveiled a gem in the automotive world - the Zagato Maserati Mostro, a limited-edition sports car that epitomizes luxury and exclusivity.

As quoted from Worldcarfans on Sunday, May 24, 2015, the inspiration for the Zagato Maserati Mostro stems from the iconic 1957 Maserati 450 S Coupe Zagato "Monster," originally crafted for the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans at the request of the renowned Sir Stirling Moss. The design elements pay homage to its predecessor, evident in the elongated front snout and the distinct curvature reminiscent of 1950s racing aesthetics.

Crafted with precision, the car's frame is constructed entirely from carbon fiber, offering a perfect balance of strength and lightweight performance. Additionally, a tubular steel protective frame reinforces the center, ensuring optimal safety standards. The body itself is a blend of carbon fiber, further enhancing its agility on the road.

One of the striking features of the Zagato Maserati Mostro is its fixed rear wing, meticulously designed to enhance stability and aerodynamics during high-speed maneuvers. The doors, opening in a unique forward and upward motion, add a touch of theatrical flair to the overall design. Complementing these features are the exquisite 19-inch wire wheels, adorned with 255/40 R19 tires at the front and 295/35 R19 at the rear, delivering a perfect blend of style and performance.

Under the hood, the Zagato Maserati Mostro houses a front-mid mounted Maserati V8 engine, featuring dry-sump lubrication and a customizable engine management system. Paired with a semi-automatic six-speed transmission, this powerhouse ensures a thrilling driving experience, combining raw power with refined engineering.

Stepping into the interior reveals a minimalist yet luxurious cabin, accommodating only two seats adorned with sporty seat belts and a meticulously crafted steering wheel. Every detail exudes sophistication and exclusivity, reflecting the epitome of Italian automotive craftsmanship.
The unveiling of the Zagato Maserati Mostro took place at the prestigious Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in 2015, marking a celebration of the House of Trident's centenary. All five units of this automotive masterpiece were promised for delivery before December 2015, aligning perfectly with the automaker's anniversary and the festive spirit of Christmas.

At the time, while the price remains undisclosed, the allure of the Zagato Maserati Mostro has already captivated enthusiasts, with all five units spoken for before they even hit the market. This limited-edition marvel stands as a testament to the artistry and innovation that define Italian automotive excellence, promising an unparalleled driving experience for the fortunate few who possess it.. *** [EKA [31052015]| FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WORLDCARFANS | PISTONUDOS | CARSTYLING.RU | AUTOMOTOR.HU ]
