Zagato has finally revealed its coachworks project for the long-dormant Diatto marque. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Diatto brand, two keen collectors turned to Zagato with the aspiration of resurrecting past collaboration. Way back in 1921, Ugo Zagato designed a lightweight and aerodynamic body for the Diatto 25 4DS chassis.

Created in 1835 with a Perfected Wheel patent, Diatto made their first car in 1905 and often crossed paths with Zagato in their close collaboration with Ettore Bugatti, the Maserati brothers and Tazio Nuvolari.

As previously reported, Zagato will also be fitting it with a V8 engine in the front, and it’s expected the mill could be sourced from Maserati in supercharged form.
