I am not terribly au fait with the seemingly endless models and variations of the Flaminia range......but............is this Zagato version worth 3 times what the other finest version (IMHO) I've seen advertised as a coupe or is it purely rarity/exclusivity value?

The Touring does seem a very attractive price, but it does have the "worst" (or should I say, least powerful) engine of the range, just a single carb 2.5.
The SSZ on the other hand has the "best" (i.e. most powerful) engine 2.8 triple carb, it is also a Zagato body which does help, even if it is perhaps a little overpriced. So I would say yes it is purely rarity/exclusivity.

Ok...engine a bit better, or hugely better to make this far more desirable?

Plus I am doubting if the styling is in any way better!

Over the last couple of years I have seen at least 4 Flaminia Zagatos being fully restored for serious money so I surmise their popularity and therefore values are rising. The Touring bodied  cars are my personal choice but of course the soft tops presumably have more corrosion and lack of stiffness in the bodies and are therefore potentially more expensive to restore bodywise?

For me the Zagato quickens the pulse.  The Touring is fabulous but somewhat over the top in a pre-war Paris sense.  The PF is very stylish, would be my choice, but in this company more for the head than the heart.
