The Italian exotic automaker has teamed up with design and coachbuilder Zagato to create the one-off 5-95 for a special customer. Based on the Lamborghini Gallardo, the 5-95 will be displayed at this weekend’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este before heading into the hands of Albert Spiess, the man who commissioned the project.
