Separated at birth?

We’re sure we’re not the first ones to have noticed this, but could Bertone designer Marcello Gandini be guilty of cribbing off of… himself? Oh sure, the Alfa Romeo Montreal and the Lamborghini Jarama (neither of which we’re particularly huge fans, incidentally) are different cars, but one can’t help but notice the design cues that they share, particularly when viewed from head-on.

Of course, given the jaw-dropping list of credits attached to Gandini’s name, it goes without saying that if anyone should have license to dip into one’s playbook, it would be Gandini.

  1. aside from that, the Montreal was basically a junior version of the MIURA design. If you look at the side profiles, you can see the influence. The MONTREAL is one of the most striking cars i’ve ever seen in person! one of my all time favourites! the Jarama, on the other hand was a bit of a Lambo reject…

  2. Why is it that you don’t like Montreals? Not starting a flame war or anything.
