Italian design house Zagato is threatening legal action over the unauthorized use of their name by Scagliarini Motorsports.
Was anyone besides us a little confused by the Scagliarini 504 Coupe Zagato Elaborata? We couldn't figure out at first whether it was something new from the famed Italian design house Zagato or a collaboration with someone else. To recap: Late last week American design house Scagliarini Motorsports revealed their new limited-production 504 Coupe Zagato Elaborata which they claim was inspired by the Fiat 500 Zagato Coupe revealed at the Geneva Motor Show last March.
Thing is, Zagato never approved for their name to be used in Scagliarini's project, which they weren't involved with in any way. Scagliarini also used Zagato's logo without permission. Zagato now claims they will be "taking all the needed legal actions" in order to protect its individual property.
