Italy and Britain are no strangers when it comes to sports cars, most famously with the long-term collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato. Not quite as well-known but a design that would go on to heavily influence Lamborghini's Espada grand tourer, the 1967 Jaguar Pirana took the E-Type and added long, low bodywork by Bertone. Penned by the legendary Marcello Gandini, the Pirana was a semi-monocoque design that favored luxury over the E-Type's original lightweight, racing-inspired design. Commissioned by the British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, the car debuted at the 1967 London Motor show. The Pirana would go through several conversions over the years, from a manual transmission to automatic and two-seater to 2+2 GT before being brought back to its original specification. While a one-off, Gandini would use many of the concepts on the production Espada of 1968.
