The essence of timeless beauty.
The strictly limited Leica M10 Edition Zagato with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens unites the finest German craftsmanship with Italian design.
A camera with unparalleled design delivering an extraordinary multisensory experience. Directly designed by Andrea Zagato, the Leica M10 Edition Zagato is the debut special edition Leica M10. Limited to 250 sets.
Founded a century ago, Zagato has been the creator of some of the most exquisite and beautifully bespoke automobiles in history. The exclusive Italian brand is especially regarded for its innovative use of aluminum.
Today, the company continues to create special, strictly limited, editions of cars with unique styling in Milan – its original birthplace under founder Ugo Zagato. After the death of Ugo Zagato in 1968, his sons Elio and Gianni took over the company; today, it is in the hands of Elio’s son, Andrea, and his wife, Marella Rivolta-Zagato. The company headquarters have moved to Rho, a town north-west of Milan.
The passion for aesthetics and precision is shared by Leica and Zagato. “Photography plays an essential role in our work. Without the possibilities offered by photography, we would never have had the invaluable pictures and the ability to reconstruct vehicle models, and would not be able to present our work from the last decades in such an impressive way” – emphasizes CEO, Andrea Zagato.
