click above image for high-resolution gallery of the Zagato Diatto Ottovu

Zagato has released a bevy of new images detailing its Diatto Ottovu coachbuilt sports car that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week. As we told you in our previous post, the Diatto Ottovu was commissioned by a pair of collectors to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Diatto producing its first car back in 1905. Though a couple years late, these pictures prove that patience has paid off. The powerplant for the Diatto Ottovu is reportedly a supercharged V8 sourced from Maserati. The design modern but intentionally incorporates some retro cues recalling the custom horseless carriages Zagato designed and built in the early twentieth century. We'll bring you more live shots of this sexy Italian from the show floor next week.

      It's still a Fiat Coupe with a Jaguar greenhouse and a Ferari grill, but the back works quite well.

      I think the shape is incredible. I like it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Maybe it's just the color, but I kind of like the concept renderings a little better...

      Yeah. I agree with akintz's comments.

      The design, though is a nice take on retro. You have to get by the Zagato rear fender flares that has shown up in their designs for like the past 50 years...but that blue makes the care remind me of a P1800 ES that someone around here drives.

      I am not so sure about ugly, but certainly not agressive-looking.

      This is definitely in the "talk softly but carry a good sized, sturdy stick." camp.

      Supercharged V8 sourced from Maserati, which in turn was sourced from Ferrari... One could do worse...

      For someone who doesn't want the same thing as every other ferrari at the malibu starbucks, and doesn't need to advertize their taste in sportscars.

      What a TVR should have looked like. The headlamps have a dead resemblance.
