Franco Scaglione

The designer Franco Scaglione drew the Lamborghini 350 GTV, the first car to bear Ferruccio Lamborghini's name. Lamborghini once revealed why he chose Scaglione: "Well, in the early 1960's there was quite a number of designers and stylists to choose from. But Scaglione arrived at my place in a big shiny Mercedes, immaculately dressed and accompanied by a breathtakingly beautiful secretary". Your car will be ready in a week, "he told me. So I gave him the job". Scaglione was asked to draw an Italian version of the Jaguar E-type. Lamborghini owned an early model of the E-type and told: "It was a very attractive car and I really liked being seen in it!"
