    Lamborghini Marzal Concept by Bertone 1967

    The Lamborghini Marzal is a concept car, first presented by Lamborghini at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show.

    Designed by Marcello Gandini of Bertone, it was created to supply Ferruccio Lamborghini with a true four-seater car for his lineup which already included the 400GT 2+2 and the Miura. It was distinguished by amply glazed gull-wing doors and an equally amply louvered rear window. Propulsion was by a 2.0 L 175 bhp (130 kW) inline-six engine, actually a split-in-half version of Lamborghini's 4.0 L V12, mated to a 5-speed transmission.

    The Marzal remained a one-off, though the general shape and many of the ideas would later be used in the Lamborghini Espada. The Marzal design probably found wider recognition as a die-cast model, with both Dinky Toys and Matchbox making scale models, albeit in other colours such as orange, despite the original show car being painted silver.

    The Marzal appeared in action at a public event for the first time at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix when Prince Rainier III, accompanied by his wife, Princess Grace, drove the car on his traditional parade lap before the start of the race. The car made a second public appearance at the 1996 Concours Italiano in Monterey, California in honor of Carrozzeria Bertone. The Lamborghini Athon was also exhibited at this time.

    Bertone produced many special bodies in the 1950s on the chassis of Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Maserati, but he did not really get into his stride as a producer of dream cars until the late 1960s. One of the most striking of all was the 1967 Lamborghini Marzal, a very novel concept car, which directly inspired the later Espada series production car. Bertone's scheme for a four-seater Lamborghini called for enourmous gullwing doors with surfaces almost entirely of glass. This solved the problem of entry to the rear seats and drew attention to the idea. So did the all-silver upholstery!

    another scoop by Ferruccio, showing the Marzal in front of the astonished public during the Monaco GP. He did the same trick with the Miura in an earlier year.

    Wasn't Bob Wallace who actually did it with the Miura?
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    I think they were both there, but they parked the car in front of the Loewes hotel IIRC.
