 Indiacar News-Ferrari GG50 from ItalDesign
ItalDesign: "To mark 50 years of activity in the world of car design, I decided to sculpture a Ferrari to the memory of that great adventure and enjoy it with my family".
For the Ferrari GG50, Italdesign engineers were asked by Giugiaro to concentrate on positioning the new 95-liter fuel tank entirely below the trunk platform line.
From a structural standpoint, Italdesign engineers had to redesign the rear cross-member which, in the Scaglietti, joins the suspension domes atop the fuel tank.

 Italdesign Giugiaro
Italdesign's name is descriptive, but unlike Pininfarina and Bertone, their logo almost never appears on automobiles.
When Italdesign's "Iguana" was finished at 2:30 in the morning (a special new paint process to get the right "metallized" effect took much longer than anticipated), no truck could be found to transport it, so it had to be driven.
Italdesign's second generation, sons Fabrizio Giugiaro and Marco Mantovani, are now firmly in charge, though Giorgetto keeps his hand in by designing with his son Fabrizio--the body of the new Maserati Spyder is one of their joint efforts.

 Giugiaro, Italdesign, Isuzu Asso di Fiori
Italdesign's stand at the Geneva Motor Show was perennially swelling with people: journalists, designers, and manufacturers, all came to see what Giugiaro had "been up to" this time.
And they weren't disappointed: the Asso di Fiori was his fifth "Copernican revolution", after the radiator grille with incorporated headlights (Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint, 1960), bonded windows (Alfa Romeo Canguro 1964), built-in painted bumpers (Asso di Picche, 1973), and cut of the hatch wrapping onto the sides (Volkswagen Golf, 1974).
Urged by Montovani and by the Japanese who out of their enormous respect for Giugiaro, requested that every modification be approved in writing, even the substitution of the diameter of the washer or the movement of a switch on the seat, they ran non-stop for almost two years.

 The futuristic Alfa Romeo Brera by ItalDesign appears at the Geneva Motor Show
Giorgetto Giugiaro and Italdesign have shown a new concept car for Alfa at the Geneva Motor Show this month - the Alfa Romeo Brera - a 300 kW V8 power sports coupe drawing both on Alfa Romeo's styling heritage and using the latest technology to produce a dramatic coupe which promises shattering performance.
Also, with no baggage compartment, luggage loading is enabled by raising the hinged rear window inserted in the dark spoiler that houses the stoplights.
Italdesign and Giorgetto Giugiaro have drawn inspiration for the Brera from traditional Italian coachbuilders and have combined features of the 156 and 147 with a rear window modelled on the much older Giulietta Sprint.

 ItalDesign to unveil two concepts - 4Car News from Channel 4
The Visconti (pictured) is iconic designer Giorgetto Giugiaro's latest project, a study towards a possible Alfa Romeo range-topper to challenge the large coupes currently on offer from Mercedes and BMW.
According to ItalDesign, "Giugiaro has not stepped away from his personal tradition of creating concept cars that may also go straight into series production."
With four doors, the Visconti is more akin to the M-B CLS (see separate story), but retains a sleek coupe profile with a short tail and long sweep from the rear pillars.

 Car Pictures :: Welcome
As the V6 3.3 litre engine is mounted near to the rear axle, there are no transmission shafts, nor exhaust tubes which need a central tunnel in the car.
Consequently, the flat floor permitted Italdesign to house three passengers in a coupe which is slightly narrower than 2 meters.
Thanks to the combination of the internal combustion engine and of two electric motors, one for each axle, the Volta has a total output of 300 Kw / 408 hp, reaches 250 kph of top speed and accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in 4.06 seconds.

The hybrid 'green' Toyota themed Volta is joined by the Alfa Romeo based Visconti, a proposal for a future Alfa Romeo flagship.
The Giugiaro styled concept is very forward looking as it incorporates four wheel steering, an area that Alfa Romeo is known to be presently developing, while under the deeply swaged bonnet sits the next generation GM/Alfa developed 3.2-litre V6, here fitted with twin turbos to pump out 408bhp.

Without running around the point too much, the Visconti is what ItalDesign figures the replacement to the 156, the 157 might look like.
This is yet another vehicle designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who is seemingly closely knit to the Italian marque which leaped over from Pininfarina in the '80s and '90s.
At just over five meters long and 1.90 meters wide, one might think that the Visconti is too big to be a direct replacement to the 156, however it's the platform that is guaranteed.

 Giugiaro, Italdesign, Isuzu Piazza   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
During the 1979 Geneva Motor Show, Italdesign had been entrusted by Isuzu to develop all the engineering studies for the production start-up of the Asso di Fiori prototype, to construct a new prototype faithful to the new designs and build the master for the preparation of the molds.
At the 1981 Geneva Motor Show, Italdesign exhibited the first pre-production model of the car that had been dubbed the Piazza and was to be sold in Japan from the following May onwards.
From this point of view of shape the variations are minimal: The front bumper has a larger cross member, the underbody, a different shape of the air intake, the door opens by means of a traditional handle instead of pulling on the sheet metal.
