Italian Styling and German Excellence: the Leica M10 Edition Zagato
Zagato designs have impressed each and every single one of us for nearly 100 years. The renowned Italian design firm, founded in 1919, was responsible for some of the most beautiful cars on the road in these last decades, with names like Aston Martin, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, and even Lamborghini teaming up with the family-run coachbuilding company to design some of their most iconic vehicles.
But Zagato should not be associated only with automotive creations; the company has been involved in many other projects, and the Leica M10 Edition Zagato camera surely points towards an evolution of the name, as branching out towards a new universe. The stunning digital camera you see here looks more like a work of art than anything else.
Decked in an all-aluminum body, the Leica M10 Edition Zagato shows off machined grooves and a gray Leica icon, not to mention the iconic red shutter button. Zagato’s name can be seen on the edges of the Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 lens, while a top-grain red leather strap complements its elegant body.
If you like what you see, you might have to fight over it, because only 250 examples of this Leica camera will be produced and each one will set you back a cool $21,600. Does that sound interesting to you? It sure looks amazing, and the gallery below will have anyone thinking the same in a heartbeat.
