The publication of the project on the ADI Design Index 2020 allows the concept car to compete for the pre-selection for the famous prize awarded every two years
Turin, 4 June 2021 – The ADI Permanent Design Observatory has selected the Karma GT designed by Pininfarina for publication in the ADI Design Index 2020, which allows the concept car to enter the competition for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro Award in the Design for Mobility category.
The Karma GT designed by Pininfarina was first unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show 2019 by the California-based luxury electric vehicle manufacturer.
The Karma GT is a true two-door electric “Gran Turismo” defined by the proportions of the Revero GT 2020 on whose platform it is based. Featuring a recognizable interior with a reinvented exterior that fully respects the identity of the Karma brand. The design philosophy emerges from the seductive lines of the vehicle, the completely redesigned sides, aggressive nose, and contrasting black roof. These design elements together transform the character of the Revero GT into an exclusive vehicle that blends Californian innovation with the unique style of Italian sports cars.
“We are proud that the project born from our creativity and the collaboration with Karma Automotive has received prestigious global recognition – affirms Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group. – The electric GT best interprets the spirit of the ADI Design Index and perfectly expresses our expertise in the design and creation of customized luxury vehicles, always in the name of environmental sustainability “.
