Lamborghini Raptor!

1996 Zagato Raptor (1 Made)
Chassis #P06
Engine #

Zagato launched an exciting new sportscar on the occasion of the 1996 Geneva Show. A World Premier, the Raptor is a provocative styling proposal powered by Lamborghini's classic V12.

The Raptor project has revolutionised the company's decades-long expertise in constructing fully functioning running concepts. CAD-CAM development has been integrated from the outset, effectively eliminating the need for the traditional styling model and enabling the prototype to be completed in under one month.

The car features a novel modular cockpit lay-out with a front-hinged, one-piece greenhouse section which includes the doors, windscreen and the company's famous double-bubble roofline. From a traditional two-seater coupé, the Raptor can be transformed into a two-seater Barchetta, or a racing-style open single-seater incorporating a special metal tonneau cover over the passenger's seat.

The Raptor stands out for its particularly aggressive front and the sculpted sides that rise over the rear wheelarch to form small fins. That, along with the crisp crease in the waistline, give the idea of speed and fluency.

Following on in Zagato's long tradition of memorable show cars, the Raptor is no mere dream car, but a thoroughly practical and feasible production proposition.

The Zagato Styling Centre (SZ Design) has developed the Raptor in order to ensure it could be built as a limited series. From the innovative tubular and box-section chassis to the exciting interior styling, the Raptor is a concentration of advanced design and engineering.

Fully certifiable for the road, this ultra-high performance, mid-engined sports coupé uses a powerful 5.7 litre V12 driving all four wheels.

Lamborghini carried out tests on the Raptor, after which it appeared at Pebble Beach celebrating the Zagato marque.

Above and below, the 1996 Zagato Raptor had been offered by Brooks europe during the Geneva salon on March 6, 2000. Closing bid for this one-of-a-kind automobile reached 360,000 Swiss Francs (CHF) or $216,371.88US, less than the price of a new Diablo. Surprisingly low for this rarity but a great deal for its luck new owner. Congratulations!

Apparently the Raptor was only an excellent styling exercise which could have been an exiting new road car. However, the one car that was built was an old, converted Diablo chassis with a rebuilt old engine, and three large new polyester body parts and a new interior. It was a real rolling concept for show; not meant to drive faster than walking pace, as it was not studied, engineered or developed to any further levels (the project was realized in an extremely short timeframe and instantly aborted by Lamborghini; the car was never allowed to wear Lamborghini badges). The buyer at Brooks bought a motorized mock-up which will loose its panels at any speed over 50 km/hour (???), so who really knows if it was such a bargain!
