From 1947, Zagato presented a new style for competition models, called ‘Panoramica’. It was basically a raised, rounded roof to accomodate helmeted drivers. It was later replaced by the famous ‘double-bubble’ arrangement in the 50’s. The ‘Panoramica’ style was invented by Zagato designer, Vieri Rapi.
