1993 Autech Gavia

In 1993 Autech and Zagato worked together on their second car known as the Autech Gavia. It was a tuned version of the Leopard with performance modifications by Autech and a new body from Zagato of Milan.

Not much is know about the project, but the model is powered by a turbocharged VG30DETT 3.0-liter engine that produced 280 bhp. At the time is was Nissan’s most potent engine and was typically fitted in the Fairlady Z or 300ZX as it was known in North America.

The car only carries Zagato badges and a single Gavia script on the trunk. Peculiar disc hubcaps were fitted with a duct for the valve stems.
