Looks nice from a rear 3/4 view, but the front must be butt ugly since they don't show it in any of the pix I could find. :D

it's good to see that these italian coach builders are back at it again with all these commissioned artwork.

Maybe they are saving the best for last.

The way the rear window meets the rear side window is unique.
I don't recall seeing any other car where these two pieces meet at a point.

That's got to affect torsional rigidity. There's no way that roof adds any structural support. Also wonder what happens if it rolls?

More info on the car @ Winding Road

At least Zagato is in better shape than Bertone, who seems to be close to the edge of the abyss...

This has been a long standing styling cue of Zagato along with the Double Bubble roof design and other features.

While I welcome the growing number enthusiasts that are now owning Maseratis. I hope that their enthusiasm for the marque will include getting to know its history and how many of the styling cues of the current cars are actually inspired by classic Maseratis of yesterday.

If anyone is interested in learning more about Maserati's history, come to the Maserati Owners National Meet & Historic Reunion June 22 - 25.

We already have 3 of the legendary Maserati 450S' and 2 Birdcages scheduled to attend.
