Premiered at the 2008 Geneva International Motor Show, The “Quaranta” project is a concept car designed to celebrate Italdesign Giugiaro’s fortieth anniversary.

Despite its flat, highly compact shape, the Quaranta features a single-volume shape, characterized by a continuous body line stretching from its clipped nose to the tail that exploits the almost horizontal rake of the windscreen, as a hommage to the 1968 Bizzarrini Manta which, at that time, represented a major breakthrough in styling.

Let’s analyze together the design of the two Giugiaro concept cars.
