Lamborghini has been seriously upping its production overt the years. When Audi took over in the late 1990s, the company's production was measured in the 200-unit range. Now it's making over 2,000 cars every year. But at the same time, Sant'Agata has been focusing on low-volume production as well, with a separate assembly line dedicated to putting together concept cars and limited editions like the Sesto Elemento and Veneno. And now it may just have another on its hands.

That would be the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato, a unique coachbuilt supercar based on the Gallardo and unveiled last week at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este on the shores of Italy's glamorous Lake Como. It was commissioned as a one-off custom for noted Lambo and Zagato collector Albert Spiess, but reports suggest that it could be put into limited production.

The viability of the project would likely depend on how many orders the Italians might garner for an expanded production run. Whether the project would be undertaken at Lamborghini's special projects facility or off-site by Zagato remains to be seen, but you can bet it would fetch a pretty penny or two, despite the fact that the platform on which it's based is now over a decade old and has since been replaced by the newer Huracán.

It wouldn't be the first time Zagato has performed its magic for Lamborghini, from the 3500 GTZ of 1965, through to the Raptor, L147 "Super Diablo" and LM 003 Borneo of the 1990s. Take a drive down memory lane in the image gallery below.

      I hope this thing looks better in real life than on screen.

      This is.... unfortunate.

      In the past, for me anyway, Zagato versions seemed to be visually lighter yet more powerful than the production cars they were based on. Not this one.

      The design work of Zagato worked very nicely on the Aston Marting V12 Zagato, but not here. This is terrible. The Gallardo is a very angular car and throwing semi circles and curves on it simply doesn't work in my opinion.

      Maybe they could limit production to zero?

      Zagato usually has decent designs but this is an absolute atrocity. No idea how this made it past an initial sketch... That's why they're no Pininfarina.

      For a Spiker this would be a tremendous improvement in aesthetics that would fit right in with the line up. For a Lamborghini this is a tragic failure. Maybe they should sell this styling to Spiker.

        Their Spyker C12 was almost alien, but I preferred it to this. Spyker could simply start producing cars once again, and scrap the B6.

      I might be apart of the minority here, but I think this looks amazing.

      Looks less like a Lambo and more like an amateur start-up, vapor bound creation.
