The 1967 Lamborghini Marzal concept goes publicJune 3, 2019
An amazing 1967 Lamborghini Marzal concept vehicle is featured on the Concorso d’Eleganza. The car received a unique appearance and powerplant of 175 hp
Apparently, this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza is home to old concept cars that somehow come back to life. First, the concept Ferrari 512 S Modulo (either a UFO or a sports car) caught our attention. But now we want to mention the 1967 Lamborghini Marzal. This concept was developed by Marcello Gandini from Bertone.
Lamborghini Marzal was a concept car presented at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show.
As planned by its creators, the four-seater Lambo was supposed to join the Ferruccio Lamborghini racing team. Based on the Miura, the concept has a wheelbase extended by 127 mm.
Visually, it is difficult not to notice the concept of Marzal with its silver color, which is primarily visible on the upholstery, thanks to which the car looks like it is ready for the future. Especially worth noting the “very invisible” windows that extend to the door sills.
In addition to the outlandish design, the Marzal concept also has a rather specific engine behind the rear seats. We are talking about a 2.0-liter row “six”, which gives 175 horsepower, which in turn are sent through a 5-step “mechanics” to the wheels. Well, this is actually a version of the Lamborghini 4.0L V12 engine divided into two parts.
The video published here is not the only one that captures the Italian concept. In addition to the Geneva Motor Show, he also appeared at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix and in 1996 in California. It was then sold at auction in Ville d’Este for about $ 2 million in 2011.
