Known as FZ93 (Formula Zagato '93), this one-off Ferrari was designed by Ercole Spada who had returned to the Milanese coachbuilder in 1992. It is based on a standard Swiss market Ferrari Testarossa (chassis 83935).
The FZ93 was a typically uncompromising Zagato design including the famous 'double bubble' roof. The leading edge of the bonnet is characterized by a projection reminiscent of a F1 nose cone, a feature that showed up in the Ferrari Enzo design many years later.
This experimental car was first presented at the 1993 Geneva Show in Switzerland. When first released, the FZ93 featured an awkward two-tone paint scheme and huge black prancing horses on the sides. Afterwards, Zagato painted the entire body red.
The FZ93 can be seen in the Zagato Collection in Milan.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
