Throughout Automobili Lamborghini’s history there have been numerous records and firsts that have made the House of Sant’Agata Bolognese one of the world’s best known supercar manufacturers. But here are five unusual records you might not have known about:
1. Marzal: the car with the most glass surface area: 4.5 square meters
Developed with the intention to create a four-seater grand tourer, the Marzal, designed by Marcello Gandini for Carrozzeria Bertone, became a worldwide icon of style and design. Among the features that make the Marzal’s design special are the interior, entirely upholstered in silver-colored leather and the hexagon, the central theme of its entire design which was repeated in as many details as possible and is echoed in the shape of the dashboard, the rear window and in the console cut-out. But the most striking feature of all was the extensive glass surface that covers 4.5 square meters, from the gull-wing doors to the roof.
This peculiarity means the Marzal is a fully operational show car with the largest glass surface in history.
