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!

1964 Worlds Fair Ford Exhibit 1965 Mustang neg CN3430-231The first Ford Mustang was officially born on April 17th, 1964 according to the carmaker, from a product concept clearly defined by Lee Iacocca.
It was an instance success as the affordable sports car the young generation could afford and soon became the icon of the 1960ies American Dream.
The stunning success steered the marketing and sales "experts" at Ford towards bigger and heavier developments and the designers were asked to play it safer and safer.
The following generations somehow betrayed the original «simple» concept and the myth fades away.
However, the Mustang nameplate has remained strong and is still exciting the desire of car enthusiasts. The new generation launched today with the limited series 50th Anniversary Edition has all it needs to pay homage to the founder of the dynasty.

Separately we will look at the Italdesign 2007 Ford Mustang that represent one of the purest interepretation of the orginal Mustang concept and design, with a very amateurish and spontaneous interview on video.
Here below we recap the 50 history of the Ford Mustang and in our Photo Gallery we offer you a first set of images. The gallery will be further extended in the next few days.
