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!

The bodywork treatment enhance the production technology and materials with the use of bare stainless steel skin and shark-skin textile at the rear.

    The overall length of the car can be relatively compact and yet grant a large and comfortable cabin because of the minimalist Hybrid powertrain that is made of a very compact 1.6 litres, turbocharged, petrol engine of the RCA R sport cars that delivers as much as 198 kW ( 266 HP) and a 50 kW (67 HP) electric motor driving the rear axle.
