I’ve had my turn here gushing over the Marzal, so now it’s Road and Track’s turn. Not surprisingly, they were as blown away as I was when they first saw pictures of it. But then “it is seldom that that an entirely fresh approach to automobile design is seen…it’s so fresh it’s startling”.
What’s a bit surprising is that there’s no mention of the name Marcello Gandini, who designed it and also takes credit for the Miura and others to come. Actually, R&T did criticize the excessive use of the hexagonal honeycomb motif in the interior as well as engine cover “tasteless to the extreme”. Ouch; that’s pretty harsh.
