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!

11 MINI 2014 SUPERLEGGERA VISION 16Alec Issigonis would be proud of this sporty Mini Superleggera and I would be really glad to get a chance to drive one before they are sold out!

But I would wear a helmet with a tough glass screen to protect my face, should there some a sudden stop and my head would contact with the upper edge of the windscreen! A motorbike helmet with a strong visor would be just what the doctor ordered.

But with that negative note over and forgotten, I think the car is a worthy newcomer in the Mini-line-up.

The first car that came to my mind when I saw the photo of the Superleggera, is the Austin-Healey Sprint. The difference between these two cars is some 40 years of new technology and design. I am especially impressed of the cockpit design, but not having had a chance to feel the materials and sit in the drivers seat, I cannot say how good it is in reality.

Knowing the Superleggera is at the moment just a design-prototype; we can only hope that the BMW Group will put this roadster in production soonest possible! It has all the makings of a sales success.

    Anyhow, congratulations to Anders Warming, Louis de Fabribeckers and the Superleggera team for this jolly nice and probably reasonably fast mini sports car! There are not too many nice, small and hopefully affordable roadsters on the market. It would be perfect for a tour of Tuscany at the time of a Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este
