A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

BERTONE---Alfa-Romeo-Canguro-X-ray-by-Makoto-Ouchi

Every time we hear about the disappearance of a great name in the car industry it hurts. Of course there is the loss of employment, but for us – so called automobile enthusiasts – it is also a loss of an old friend.
When I read about Bertone going to bankruptcy it hurt, and when I began to go trough all the beautiful cars they had designed and built and of which I have driven almost all, it was like loosing a good friend.
I cannot imagine what will happen to the name Bertone. One just has to hope that Nuccio will find a way to keep the brand-name alive, and not sell it to some Indian or Korean company.

 

This is an opportunity for the Italian government to jump in a try to keep the trade-mark in the country where it was born and where it grew into one of the most respected names in car design, especially the top range sports cars.
