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!

Renault-New-Twingo-Geneva-2014--05

The first fruit of the Daimler and Renault alliance is ready for production and commercial launch. It is the all new “all-at-rear” Twingo developed in association with Smart.
In 2010 the two companies agreed on a strategic cooperation for the joint-development of New Twingo and the next versions of the two and four seats Smarts.
Preview concepts, the Twin’Z and Twin’Run of the small city car have been shown at events of different sorts since last March but now the replacement of the 20 years old French city car is shown in its final, and attractive, form.The small French car is not small really: it is some 3.6 metres long, fairly wide at 1705mm and some 1505 high.

Skoda-Octavia-Scout-2014-01Skoda escalation to international markets continues with new and ambitious additions to its range. The goal is to lift the average price of the brand. In Geneva the Check maker and member of the VW group will launch its new generation Scout, its Crossover flag in the Octavia range.  The Scout comes with the Haldex permanent all-wheel-drive transmission already available with the Octavia Wagon but has a fairly higher suspensions setting and 17inch wheels that add 33mm the ground clearance of the car.

Fiat-Panda-Cross Geneva-2014-01Ever since it was first launched, back in 1983, the Fiat Panda 4x4 has been a great market success in Italy and the nearby Alpine countries, France, Switzerland and Austria for its unique capabilities condensed into a small and light package. The great size/carrying capacity ratio, the big (for a small city car) wheels, the than very rare 4x4 transmission made it an instant success that never faded away.

The second generation designed by Bertone added size, roominess, height and style and the success is continue. The Fiat Panda range is granting the highest earning ratio to the brand.

Fiat believes it can do better, with the extra touch of style and image of the Panda Cross, positioned over the Panda 4x4 and the Panda Trekking.

The city-car-by-definition that farmers and gentlemen drive in the countryside is taking a colourful look that shows it further enhanced capabilities and ambitions.

QOROS-3-Hatch--Geneva-2014-03

The multi-ethnic team at Qoros is keeping its promises with the precision of a Swiss watch and is going back to the Geneva motor show with its second model in the range ready for production. One year after the announcement of the Qoros 3 Sedan, here comes the Qoros 3 Hatch, with its two-box and 5 doors architecture extending over a length of 4.4 metres. Although it is as much as 215 mm shorter than the Sedan, the Hatch shares the same wheelbase of the Sedan and thus it comes with a comfortable wheelbase of 2.69 metres.

The looks provided by the images released by the young Sino-Chinese maker, create a good impression and this is to no surprise. It is the work of German and much experienced designer Gert Hildebrand, one of the most creative and passionate designers around. Indeed, the 3 Hatch looks even better balanced than the 3 Sedan it is derived from.
