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!

    1968 Ferrari 250 P5 Berlinetta Speciale Pininfarina Concept


    The 250 P5 Berlinetta Speciale concept cars built as collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina. The concept features many design elements which appeared on later Ferrari models. The P5 featured about the concept was that it featured a glass-covered mid-engine, much like many of the modern Ferrari do today.

     
    Designed by Pininfarina in 1968, the Ferrari P5 was first shown at the 1968 Geneva Motorshow. The Ferrari 250 P5 Berlinetta Speciale was constructed using a P4 chassis and had a 3 litre mid-mounted V-12 engine. The car was a study in aerodynamics and design and it helped influence later day production Ferrari's, most notably the clear rear glass over the engine.
