Paolo Spada has written a letter to Lamborghini about the front end's resemblance between the Spada Codatronca and the Lamborghini Estoque. Paolo is not amused!

See for yourself.

Spada Codatronca:

They do have a striking resemblence, but didn't Lamborghini already use these kind of shapes for the Murcielago?
So the question is: who was first?

Spada claims to be the first with the Zagato Ferrari FZ93: http://www.coachbuild.com/index.php?option=com_gallery2&Itemid=50&g2_itemId=21455
The Ferrari Enzo nose shows some resemblance to that car.

Claiming a specific styling feature is the hardest thing to do... All 'new' things simply have to come from somewhere. Fantasy is always based on reality. It is almost impossible to be 100% original. Only God is said to be truly original. ;)
