The Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato was the last “evolution” of the Flavia after the Coupé Pininfarina and the Spider Vignale, and Zagato’s prototype was presented at Geneva Auto Show in 1962, while the final version of the car came just a few months later at the Turin Motor Show. What was born from Ercole Spada’s pen was a car with such unique lines that it defied comparisons. It was an alien shape—some might say homely—and an altogether alien-looking shape on the road. Out of place, outrageous, unconventional, charming, and I’ll say beautiful: the Flavia Sport Zagato still continues to divide opinions due to its totally nonconformist and revolutionary lines (as well as the location of its drive wheels), but whatever oddness exists in this shape should be celebrated. The visual language starts from the grille, which becomes an integral part of the front end, “breaking” transversely between the nose and the bonnet and generating a very particular geometric shape in the process. The double headlight casings, especially on the sides of the grille, take the basic shape of the grille out to the perimeter lines, but with much neater and rounded forms.
