Lancia Aprilia Sport Zagato 1938 Sanction Lost
Within the celebrations for the hundredth anniversary of the Lancia brand, with whom Zagato always worked to body their 'Sport' versions, in 2006 Andrea Zagato launched the 'Sanction Lost' programme. The Zagato Atelier Classic division brought back to life the Lancia Aprilia Sport Zagato, a car which Andrea's grandfather Ugo had built in 1938 and that had gone missing. There were only a few faded black and white pictures of it, but, thanks to the photometric process, to the CAD modeling and to the CNC milling, the Aprilia Sport, shaped like the cross section of a wing, in a single volume undisturbed by external fenders, was reconstructed exactly as it originally was.
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.
