To celebrate 90 years of re-skinning Italian exotics, CarsUK.net is reporting that Zagato has teamed up with Ferrari to produce the 550 GTZ. Based off the Ferrari 550 Barchetta, five of these Z8-like-styling roadsters will be built at a price tag of more than £1 million ($1.65 million). Each car will be refurbished by Ferrari and then shipped to Zagato for the bodywork.
Performance will not be altered. It will use the same 5.5-liter 485-hp V-12 engine found in the base car.
Rumors have this being that last time a re-skinned Zagato will be able to work with Ferrari and thus wear the prancing-horse badges because Ferrari will be moving all customer customizations in-house.
