In 1978 in Moncalieri Giorgetto Giugiaro founded Italdesign, one of the most important automotive workshops in the world. This year Italdesign will give a further proof of the excellence of the Made in Italy with its new brand, “Italdesign Automobili Speciali”, which will make its debut during the Geneva International Motor Show opening to the public on March, 9th. The new brand will feature only vehicles constructed in extremely limited editions aimed at a selected number of collectors.
The first super exclusive product created under the brand is a first-class powerful sedan that will be produced in 2017 and that will certainly be a star of the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show. Not a prototype, it is a car homologated for road use, but only 5 specimens will be produced. Its characteristics are those of a super sports car, a beautiful and aggressive Grand Turismo, with a body entirely made of carbon fiber and a modular chassis made of carbon fiber and aluminum.
It will have a powerful aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine, capable of going from 0 to 100 km per hour in just 3.2 seconds and of reaching a speed of 330 km per hour. The silhouette of the super sedan maximizes the aerodynamics, limiting the height to just 1.2 meters (with a length of 4.85 meters) to penetrate the air with great lightness and ease. The first Italdesign Automobili Speciali car will be offered at a price of about one and a half million Euros plus taxes and optional packages, which will allow customers to customize to their liking one of the most beautiful and prestigious cars currently being produced.
