completely new Italdesign concept to be unveiled at next month’s Geneva motor show
Italdesign Giugiaro will unveil a completely new concept car at the Geneva motor show next month.
The Italian design house has issued very little information to accompany the above teaser picture, nevertheless the concept will be likely to show the firm’s vision for the future of the automotive industry.
The latest concept will be understood to have been styled under Italdesign design boss Filippo Perini, who was appointed last September. Perini was formerly Lamborghini’s design chief.
Volkswagen-owned Italdesign was headed by former VW Group design boss Walter de Silva until November last year when de Silva announced he would likely leave Volkswagen. His replacement, Michael Mauer, was announced in December.
Italdesign hit the headlines in July last year as Giorgetto Giugiaro, who founded the company in 1968, sold his remaining shares to Audi, bringing to an end his participation from the firm.
Previous concepts unveiled by Italdesign include 2012’s Brivido, a dramatic two-door four-seater coupe constructed of aluminium in addition to also carbonfibre which has a large glasshouse “dome”, in addition to also 2013’s Parcour crossover.
