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!

AR-1931-6C-1750-GS-Villa-Este-201436All the Winners at the 2014 «Concorso d’Eleganza di Villa d’Este».


Many awards have been delivered on the final days of the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza di Villa d’Este» but with no doubt the supreme and outstanding winner was the unique Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Spider built in 1931 and brought back to life by famous Italian classic car collector Corrado Lopresto.

His spectacular open-air two seater was immediately awarded the Coppa d’Oro top-prize from the selected public invited to Villa d’Este on the first day and went on to win the same honour next day from the paying public at Villa Erba.

The superlative Alfa Romeo, that was built by a forgotten coachbuilder by the name of Aprile in its shops at Savona, also won the referendum among young people under 16 years of age and, naturally, its class. That was the Class C: Gone with the wind.
