The AMX Vignale Project IV.

Vehicle Overview

The AMX Vignale Project IV stands as a cornerstone in the history of American Motors Corporation (AMC), marking a pivotal moment in the evolution of automotive design and innovation. Conceived in 1965, the AMX program took shape and swiftly gained momentum, culminating in the unveiling of “Project IV” in 1966—a traveling showcase of prototypes that offered a tantalizing glimpse into AMC’s future production vehicles. At its inception, the AMX project began with a prototype featuring a lightweight fiberglass skin and an absence of an engine, serving as a canvas for future developments. However, it was the transformation into a fully operational vehicle by Vignale, a renowned Italian coachbuilder, that truly elevated the project to new heights. In a remarkable display of skill and efficiency, the Vignale prototype emerged within a mere 78 days, a testament to AMC’s commitment to innovation and progress. Central to the Vignale prototype’s allure were its myriad of unique features, each meticulously crafted to captivate the imagination of enthusiasts and critics alike. From the sleek, aerodynamic profile accentuated by hidden “A” pillars to the inclusion of a versatile “Ramble seat” in the rear, every detail spoke volumes about AMC’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of automotive design. Crucially, the dimensions of the Vignale prototype closely mirrored those of the eventual production AMX, offering a tantalizing preview of what was to come. With a wheelbase of 98 inches, an overall length of 179 inches, and a height of 48 inches, it exuded a sense of proportion and balance that would come to define the AMX lineage. At the helm of this visionary project was Richard Teague, whose creative genius played a pivotal role in shaping the AMX Vignale Project IV. His innovative approach to design, coupled with Vignale’s renowned craftsmanship, resulted in a vehicle that captured the essence of automotive excellence. In essence, the AMX Vignale Project IV represented the culmination of AMC’s relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation. From its humble beginnings as a concept to its realization as a tangible embodiment of automotive prowess, it remains a timeless testament to the power of collaboration, creativity, and unwavering determination in the pursuit of automotive greatness.
