Even those, who can pronounce the name Ghia (Gi:ha) correctly, usually only know the VW Karmann-Ghia, which was first launched in 1955. Connoisseurs know, that Carrozzeria Ghia is 100 years old this year and was bought by Ford in 1970.
But Ghia is behind far more vehicles than most expect: DeTomaso Mangusta and Pantera, Maserati Ghibli, but also Renault Floride or even Innocenti 950 and the many variants of the FIAT 500 and 600 as “Jolly” beach cars. In addition, there are more than 60 extravagant prototypes that have been created for Ghia by renowned designers since 1950 – and many of them still exist!
The international Concours d’Elegance ASC-Classic-Gala Schwetzingen from 3 to 5 September 2021 is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of this creative Italian coachbuilding company and invites owners of rare Ghia automobiles to enter the Concours d’Elegance 2021, for which a separate trophy “Centennario Ghia 2021” has been created. Entries have already been received, promising a special Ghia show.
