VIN #8MA512 is the seventh De Tomaso Mangusta chassis built. It's also a one-off prototype presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show by Ghia, with Giorgetto Giugiaro on the receiving end of all the props.
Chassis number '0201L' from 1960 is the last Aston Martin DB4GT completed in period, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Carrozzeria Bertone. They call it the "Jet Coupé", and Bonhams estimates its value at around $5.8 million.
It's much better! You see, Giorgetto Giugiaro started experimenting with a replacement for the Karmann Ghia not long after the Type 34 was introduced in 1961. This open-top wonder came a decade later.
One of the coolest cars in the world is the nigh-indestructible Rally Fighter built and sold in the US. Now VW has unveiled a Giugiaro concept called the X-GT that apes that Baja-style racer.
Giorgetto Giugiaro. Now repeat it three times. Got it? It's one of the biggest names in the business, but don't blame him for switching to the more user friendly Italdesign in 1968. Before doing that though, he also created some beautiful shapes at Bertone and Ghia. After all, they don't name someone Car designer of…
Joe Isuzu (David Leisure) gained fame and fortune for lying, while the cars he shilled never really achieved much of either. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Impulse is semi-famous, and that's no lie, but is its price worth giving up some of your fortune?
At a recent visit to Giugiaro, this 50-year-old unnamed Lamborghini, never before seen, suddenly appeared like an undiscovered Shakespeare manuscript, discreetly displayed in a library with no one paying attention.
You've already seen the other VW/Giugiaro collabo at Geneva, the Go! The Tex is less futuristic, but far more plausible as a next-wave design marker. Could this be the next Golf? It's as good a direction as any.
Giorgetto Giugiaro's pen is the reason the Mk1 Volkswagen Rabbit/Golf and Scirocco appear to have stopped time. This past May, VW bought the design house Giugiaro founded, Italdesign, and can now have anything Giugiaro it wants, including another 13-foot-long hatchback.
Two concepts from Volkswagen-owned design house Italdesign Giugiaro, leaked via European patents, show off a future design for a Golf/Scirocco-sized vehicle and a Polo-sized vehicle.
Walter de'Silva, head of Volkswagen design, has reinterpreted a Leica camera to the tune of $26,500. He's not the first car designer to venture into camera design. In the red corner is Giorgetto Giugiaro of Nikon and supercar fame.
Does the BMW M1 Homage concept we saw yesterday try just a little too hard to impress? Does a bear shit in the woods? The gaping maw of modern styling is chewing through heritage designs at an astonishing rate, and starting to look at eras not often remembered fondly for its great cars. Just because the malaise era…
The Giugiaro folks have been teasing us for days with cropped crap shots of the Quaranta concept car they'll be revealing at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Now we've got a set of press photos of the edgy wedge that's been four decades in the coming in all of its full glory. Oh, and we told you it'd be greener around…
The good little Italian boys n' girls over at Italdesign have gone ahead and released their third batch of teaser shots of the car we're very much looking forward to seeing in Geneva next month, the Giugiaro Quaranta. We've already shown you a few shots and this hot load rounds out the threesome of teaser shots from…
Giugiaro has released another teaser image of its forthcoming Geneva concept car. So far nameless, commenter Mark Miller has made an educated guess that it'll be called Quaranta - Italian for forty. 2008 is ItalDesign's 40th birthday. We also predict some sort of hypothetical green power plant, you know the kind that…
