    Hello everyone,

    I just thought we should start a thread about Marcello Gandini in this Lamborghinichat section given all he contributed to the brand. We could include any sort of material, videos, pictures, articles, etc...

    He is a very private person so it is very difficult to find, hence interesting to share.

    I had the idea while coming across this wonderful interview done by Davide Cironi in which Mr. Gandini explains some of the creative process that went on for the creation of the Miura, Countach, Espada. This is an absolute must-see and thanks a lot to Davide for having done it. The sequences with the late ing. Stanzani are also a fantastic insight and make us understand better how these two great men worked together.



    Hope we’ll be able to create a great resource all together!

    I just watched this yesterday as well. It was a great interview. Davide always does great work with his videos. Definitely worth watching.

    Indeed, I love his videos. The ones with ing. Stanzani in the museum are amazing.

    Amazing talent and in his early 20’s. I think his youth, imagination and gutsy approach in his design is what transfixes us today.

    I noticed that, although I'm not sure that's actually an SV front hood, the aperture does not look quite wide enough, and the opening is a bit too tall vertically.

    Marcello Gandini is the only person to sign a Lamborghini I've owned (LP400 1120110), I was lucky to meet him in person once many years ago, I think his benchmark designs, Miura & Countach particularly, are peerless automotive design brilliance.

    A portrait of the master @ home in his studio.

    Interesting indeed. I didn’t know that the 308 gt/4 project also started with the V6,

    Almost too scared to ask how much it is...! I've seen those Urraco images so many times now but never tire of looking at them ;)

    Nuccio Bertone with his own example of Gandini's wonderful 308GT4 (born of the Urraco of course), does anyone know who the other chap is with the glasses...?
