Ercole Spada

von Bart Lenaerts und Lies de Mol

When he started his career in the famous Milanese studio Zagato back in 1960, Ercole Spada was absolutely unknown to car enthusiasts and the whole industry. Nevertheless, the young designer instantly was ordered to conceptualize cars for famous companies like Aston Martin, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, yet Bristol. Since then, companies with a mainly sporty touch relied on his creations. One reason is that Spada obviously had one important target: he wanted to combine aerodynamics - functional efficiency - and aesthetics in one form.

Although he contributed to a lot of racing victories in this manner and worked for the Carrozzeria Ghia, for BMW and the design studio I.DE.A. in Turin in his long career, he didn't become a star on the world's boulevards. And he still is the silent foreman. For this, it is most unusual that he opened the doors to his studio, to his home and to his creative heart for the motoring journalist and photographer Bart Lenaerts and his wife Lies De Mol. The outcome of this is shown in an extraordinary illustrated book: their years of extensive work together. It is beautifully designed and gives exclusive information - for the reader to take part in the exciting life of a truly passionate car guy.

  • Spada is the creator of the famous "Codatronca" tail (Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ etc.), designed the BMW 5-series (E34) and the 7-series (E32)
  • with his son Paolo, he is running the design studio Spadaconcept
  • his company Spada Vetture Sport created an international stir with its Codatronca supercar
