The 1996 Zagato Raptor Concept is a supercar like no other in the world because it’s a one-off venture. It’s evidence of Zagato’s fledgling computer-aided design (CAD) equipment and was one of the first to enjoy a completely digital creation and manufacturing process.
Built using elegant carbon fiber on a tubular space-frame chassis, the Raptor hinges at the rear to reveal a 5.5-liter V-12 dual-overhead-cam quad-valve engine borrowed from the Lamborghini Diablo. It has a top speed estimated to be 200 mph, the ability to reach 60 from a standstill in less than 4 seconds and is paired with an all-wheel-drive six-speed manual transmission.
When unhinged at the front, the Raptor’s middle area pivots forward, providing easy access to the luxurious interior without the use of boring conventional doors. The double bubble design, a Zagato trademark, is both distinctive and removable so the Raptor can be either a roadster or a coupe.
