italdesign giugiaro presents 30 car models during its 50th anniversary event in turin

thirty prototypes and production models that have marked the history of italdesign and, in many cases, also that of mobility, will be on show inside the courtyard of castello del valentino in turin, throughout italdesign’s fiftieth anniversary event. visitors to the show will therefore be able to see close up and first-hand authentic legends like the de lorean DMC 12, immortalized forever on the large screen by the back to the future trilogy, the golf GTI which, between the seventies and the eighties was the dream of generations of newly qualified drivers, or the fiat panda, ‘safari’ version in the 4×4 strip concept.

in addition, visitors to italian based company italdesign‘s event will be presented some prototypes that in the eighties and nineties offered solutions to the already pressing traffic problems in city centers. these models include the biga (1992), designed for car-sharing long before the term was invented, the megagamma (1978), actually the first one-box in the history of the car, whilst the capsula (1984) proposed a revolutionary idea, whereby the same chassis could be kept and the vehicle transformed with just a few operations from a car to a tow truck, ambulance or minibus by changing its bodywork.

there will also be the first prototype entirely developed by italdesign, the bizzarrini manta. this vehicle has been built in just forty days so that it could take part in the 1968 turin motor show, which was held just three months after the company was founded.
