A single chassis was sent Zagato of Milan for a entirely new body designed by Ercole Spada.

This special car was built on chassis number 0310 which first appeared at the 1965 London motor show.

Later the car ended up in Australia with a left hand-drive conversion. In 1999 the car was purchased in the Netherlands and restored back to its original configuration execept the interni elastipel nero was converted to leather.

The car was painted red for several years and has been recently brought back to it’s original condition. Later in 2008 it was purchased by a new owner and comprehensively restored both and and out for its debut at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

It is believed that a second, unconfirmed chassis was build on 0322 that was damaged beyond repair and destroyed.
