Too futuristic for its era, the one-off Lamborghini Marzal never made it to the production lines. It was designed by Marcello Gandini of Gruppo Bertone and launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1967. Its most remarkable features were the amply glazed doors and the large rear window – in all, 50 square feet of glass.
What was a little surprising about this stunner was that its engine was actually half as powerful as that of the successful Miura. It had a 2.0-liter displacement and 175 horsepower. This however was enough to offer a thrilling driving experience. To match its out-of-this-world exterior, the Marzal received a futuristic interior with silvery seat covers and a honeycomb-shaped central console.
The car is a real gem today and it’s no wonder that it fetched $2.1 million at the Villa d’Este auction.
