The founder of Italdesign built electric hypercross and Roadster with “halo”


The company GFG Style belonging to the designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio, spoke about the three new products that I wanted to present to the public at the Geneva motor show. One of them is hypercross Vision 2030 – released in December 2019. The remaining two is “off-road Grand Tourer” Vision 2030 Desert Raid and Bandini Barchetta Speedster Dora, made with an eye on the Bandini sports cars of the 1950’s.

Double Vision 2030 Desert Raid evolved from normal Vision 2030. The machines common body panels, the power plant, but there are differences in the equipment. So, a “desert” electrocore extended rut, dispatched special wheels for the assault on the dunes and flaps of carbon fiber. The salon has established two sports armchairs upholstered in durable textiles Kult Italian PT Pantaloni Torino.

In motion Vision 2030 Desert Raid lead two electric motors (380 kilowatt / 517 or forces and 680 Nm of torque) powered by battery 90 kilowatt-hours. Claimed cruising range of over 450 kilometers, acceleration to a hundred in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The coupe is being developed primarily for use outside of paved roads, and help him to overcome the lack of roads needs clearance of 240 millimeters.

The second novelty is a classic Barchetta inspired by sports cars Bandini. The authors used some interesting decisions: for example, installed a frameless windscreen, and the safety secured to the tubular frame, made in the image of the “halo” Formula-1. In the salon, pay attention “the bridge”, divided the cockpit into two halves, the steering-wheel and a complete lack of physical switches.


Powerplant Dora Bandini Barchetta the same as the Vision 2030, the Desert Raid, only the electric motors in the amount of issue at 380 kilowatts and 400 (544 horsepower). From zero to “hundreds” Barchetta all-wheel drive accelerates in 3.3 seconds and reaches 250 dynamometers per hour. Without recharging the electric car drove 450 miles, but in any cycle is not specified.

In the spring of 2019 Giugiaro showed the Kangaroo concept, developed in collaboration with Chinese Auto CH. Ideologically relative French Mega Track is equipped with hydraulic suspension with adjustable ground clearance (120-260 mm) and the camber angle and the steering of the rear axle and pull out the splitter.
