Zagato has spent the last few decades refining and reimagining many of Europe's finest cars, ranging from Alfa Romeo, to Perana, and, of course Maserati. In celebration of this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Lake Como, Italy, the unmatched Milan-based coach builder has done it again, revealing their latest project: the Zagato Maserati Mostro. Designed to be a tribute to their 1957 Maserati 450S "il Mostro" and its monstrous power, this 2015 edition of the powerful coupe is built around a carbon monocoque body with a dry-sump Maserati V8 engine mounted up front. Controlled via a six-speed semi-automatic and featuring long, pontoon-like front fenders that wrap around into a long nose and rounded, wing-adorned back, the visual appeal is finished with 19-inch custom alloys. As with many of the cars seen at this year's star-studded event, all five of the Zagato Maserati Mostro cars are track-ready, but street legal and are also, unfortunately, all claimed for unannounced sums. Continue browsing their latest project after the click and head to the Zagato homepage to see their full line of Maseratis, dating back to the early 20th century.
