Vehicle Overview

Unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1964, the Fiat 850 Coupé Zagato stands out for its distinctive and avant-garde design. Dubbed the “850 edgy,” this version of the Fiat 850 embodies a unique aesthetic defined by sharp corners and flowing curves, creating an original and eye-catching silhouette. The front view of the Fiat 850 Coupé Zagato features circular headlights encased in a chrome trapezoidal profile. This striking design element not only enhances the car’s visual appeal but also sets it apart from the standard Fiat 850, showcasing Zagato’s flair for innovative styling. The side profile of the car is marked by a dividing rib that separates the upper and lower sections, adding to its edgy character. This profile rib serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose, accentuating the car’s sleek lines while also providing structural integrity. The rear of the car is equally distinctive, featuring a rear window that seamlessly transitions into a bonnet with side air intakes. This design not only improves aerodynamics but also adds a touch of sophistication, making the Zagato version of the Fiat 850 particularly notable. When compared to the basic Fiat 850, the Zagato version’s design elements are far more complex and refined. The intricate details, such as the chrome trapezoidal headlight profile, the pronounced side rib, and the integrated rear air intakes, highlight the car’s uniqueness. These features underscore the particularity of this model, emphasizing Zagato’s reputation for creating bespoke and avant-garde designs. Only two specimens of the Fiat 850 Coupé Zagato were ever built, making it a rare and highly sought-after model. Its limited production run adds to its allure, capturing the imagination of automotive enthusiasts and collectors who value both its rarity and its innovative design. The Fiat 850 Coupé Zagato remains a testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of Zagato, showcasing their ability to transform a basic model into a work of automotive art. Its presentation at the Turin Motor Show in 1964 marked a significant moment in automotive design, demonstrating how bold and unconventional ideas can redefine a car’s identity. This model is a prime example of how innovative design can elevate a vehicle, making it a timeless classic.
