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!

Reportedly Volkswagen is also working to this aim and I would not be surprised if the German maker also shows a similar concept in Paris.

Peugeot-Exalt-x-Paris-2014-02The restyling of a concept car.

A new trend is launched for the Paris Motor Show by Peugeot. The restyling of a concept car.

Restyling is typically reserved to production cars and when a concept car chassis was “recycled” for a new project the outcome would take a different name. Here we witness the introduction of the “sequel”.

Last Spring. Peugeot’s look into the potential successor to the 508 flagship took the shape of a luxury car that would attract the Chinese buyers.
