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!

ITALDESIGN-GIUGIARO-2014-CLIPPER--Geneva-06How wrong were we when we guessed what Giugiaro had in store for Geneva? We leave the answer to you. Sure this is not the sort of classic saloon-style three-box limousine. Not a sort of elegant SUV, the sort of four (unusual) doors, six-seater evolution of the Parcour few ones would dream of. But how else would you call a luxurious, elegant, simple and more conservative than classic, if not a new form of luxury limousine with the DNA of the Golf?

The concept is one, which Maestro Giorgetto Giugiaro is very keen on: the greatest space for passenger in a given length and widht. Well, line the fast Clipper design to cross the oceans at the fastest speed with their full load of people and goods, the Italdesign-Giugiaro Clipper offers great comfort to six passenger on three rows and each of them in his own armchair. We shall discuss the ultimate concepts from Giugiaro again and again in the near future because it seems to point to an interesting direction everybody will want to look at.

For the time being here the official images released by the design temple of the Volkswagen Group, ahead of the opening of the Geneva Motor Show.
