Unique pieces, chassis no. 1, or strictly Italian prototypes, on which the greatest designers and coach builders from the past have experimented pioneering solutions: choices that foretell future fashion phenomena and stylistic canons. The Lopresto Collection is unlike all others: it comprises only Italian models, one off specimens, prototypes, special editions, and models made in extremely limited numbers, often personalized to match the customers specific requests. This is why it is the most important collection in Italy and one of the most prestigious in the world. Frequently, they are masterpieces that have long been forgotten, but through skilled restoration Lopresto has salvaged their bygone splendor, because he, an architect by profession and collector by passion, is in fact an automobile archeologist in love with his vehicles.
