The sensational Lamborghini Marzal prototype has returned to Monte Carlo more than 50 years after its debut at the 1967 Formula 1 Grand Prix. Prince Albert of Monaco paraded it around the 2018 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, just as his father had 51 years before.
This extraordinarily futuristic concept car was designed by Carrozzeria Bertone, with glazed gullwing doors offering an unimpeded view of the silver leather interior. The 1967 original had been driven by Prince Rainier III, with Princess Grace at his side, at the 1967 F1 Grand Prix, so the 2018 recreation was a case of history repeating itself. The Marzal has not been seen on public roads since 1967.
The Marzal has recently finished a painstaking 10-month restoration, both cosmetic and mechanical. It has always remained the property of Lamborghini, and the restorations was carried out by referring closely to Lamborghini’s Polo Storico archives.
