The ultimate italian coachbuilder site

Ferrari – 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato Spyder


Vehicle Overview

The legendary Italian coachbuilder Zagato were asked to create something special from a customer’s Ferrari 599GTB. The customer wanted something that was distinctive yet obviously Zagato and, some months later, the 599 GTZ Nibbio was unveiled. It was the latest in a long, fine, often wild line of creations from a company that had been modifying cars for nearly 100 years and managed to include all their regular styling cues, the bulbous nose, wide grille, powerful haunches and the signature “double-bubble” — a long-established Zagato calling card. It is difficult to see any elements of the 599’s design remaining in the Nibbio. The front of the car bears a resemblance to those iconic Ferrari racing cars of the early Fifties with its large egg-crate grille and air intakes where the headlights of the older cars would have been but the rear is absolutely unique and definitely opinion-dividing. However, it obviously found favour and Zagato ended up building a total of nine Nibbios, two of which were Spyders.
