Elio Zagato (27 February 1921 – 14 September 2009) was an Italian automobile designer.[1]

Like his brother Gianni Zagato (born 1929), Elio Zagato joined his father Ugo Zagato's design firm Zagato in Milan and, upon the father's death in 1968, took over its management.

He also raced cars and was one of the founders of Scuderia Ambrosiana of Milan. Races he won include Targa Florio and five GT series, as well as Coppa Inter-Europa, the Dolomites Gold Cup Race and the Berlin Avus Cup in 1955.

His son Andrea Zagato is as of 2009 in charge of the family business, jointly with his wife Marella Rivolta-Zagato, daughter to Piero Rivolta of the carmaker Iso Automoveicoli S.p.A..

His autobiography Storie di corse e non solo was published in 2002.
