Italdesign Automobili Speciali to launch hot model at Geneva
Design house becomes manufacturer for bespoke, low-volume models; first is due next month
Its first car has been previewed in a series of images. They show angular lines and aerodynamic features, suggesting it is a sports or supercar. Italdesign backs this up with the words “powerful engine” in its statement. It has suggested five models will be produced.
Italdesign bosses voiced intentions to create a new company last year. In a new statement, CEO Jörg Astalosch, said “Today, one year later, we are delivering the first running testimonial. The brand Italdesign Automobili Speciali witnesses our long-term commitment in this business.
“All these competencies applied in our ultra low series production, including styling, testing, validation and homologation, are available and offered to all interested parties worldwide.”
Italdesign’s car brand will offer its services of production alongside its existing service portfolio. “This is styling, engineering, prototyping for small and high volume production vehicles, especially also as a turnkey competence,” added Astalosch.
