The GFG Style Prototypes appear in the second season of the Sky series “Diavoli”

The GFG Protoypes designed by Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro were spotted on the set of “Diavoli”, the Sky Atlantic series co-produced by Italy, France and UK which features Alessandro Borghi and Patrick Dempsey.

The prototypes were co-stars in over a minute of editing of the first episode of the second season, (which premiered on April 22, 2022). The GFG Vision 2030 and the GFG Kangaroo were driven by Massimo Ruggero (played by Alessandro Borghi) and by Oliver Harris (Malachi Kirby), in a sort of race at the Northamptonshire circuit in the United Kingdom. 

At the finish-line two more GFG Style models were spotted: the Sibylla and the Dora.

The series tells the story about global financial conspiracies and power struggles between businessmen and large investment banks and this is just the latest episode of a long relationship between Giugiaro and the world of cinema (see the Delorean).

In a harmonious fusion of heritage and innovation, Morgan Motor Company and Pininfarina S.p.A. proudly present Midsummer, a limited series special project celebrating over two centuries of coachbuilding excellence.

The Midsummer barchetta design pays homage to the iconic European coachwork style while showcasing the timeless silhouette flexibility of Morgan vehicles. Crafted on the latest Morgan CX-Generation Bonded Aluminium platform, each Midsummer boasts a turbocharged six-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a dynamic driving experience.

Central to Midsummer’s allure is the sensory connection it fosters between occupants and machine, achieved through its distinctive style and character. Encapsulating this connection is the exterior’s remarkable use of sustainable teak wood, meticulously laminated to create sculpted wood structures surrounding the cockpit and defining a distinctive shoulder line.

Crafted by hand, each aluminium body panel demands over 250 hours of meticulous labour, a testament to the dedication of Morgan’s skilled artisans. Collaborative efforts between Morgan and Pininfarina’s designers and engineers have resulted in a final design that is both surprising and unique.

Limited to just 50 units, all of which have been eagerly claimed by customers following exclusive preview sessions, Midsummer marks a milestone in automotive craftsmanship. Each vehicle is adorned with the “Pininfarina Fuoriserie” badge, a first for a production car, signifying its exceptional status.

Massimo Fumarola, CEO of Morgan Motor Company, expressed pride in Midsummer, stating, “We are incredibly proud to unveil Midsummer, a limited series special project that celebrates two centuries of coachbuilding and embodies the core values of Morgan. It represents the pinnacle of our talented workforce’s craftsmanship.”

Giuseppe Bonollo, SVP Sales & Marketing of Pininfarina, echoed this sentiment, saying, “Together with Morgan, we are proud to lead the coachbuilding movement. This extraordinary collaboration brings together Morgan’s century-old bodybuilding philosophy with Pininfarina’s nearly 95 years of tradition in designing and crafting bespoke vehicles.”

Midsummer’s design journey was marked by intense collaboration, with designers and engineers from both companies working closely to translate shared ideals into reality. The result is a masterpiece that seamlessly blends Morgan’s rich heritage with Pininfarina’s timeless design language.

From its striking exterior to its meticulously crafted interior, Midsummer embodies the essence of automotive excellence. With its limited production and unparalleled craftsmanship, Midsummer promises to become a coveted collector’s item, cherished by enthusiasts for generations to come
