What is Italdesign?

Ever dreamt of owning an Italiano-Supercar-Rarebreed that still keeps the combustion engine alive? Well, Italdesign is here to help.

Owned by the Volkswagen Audi Group, the “Italdesign Automobili Special” brand will be manufacturing only five of these Anteater-like Front end, taking care of the exotic end.


Side vents and mean arches give a stance to the Italian!


The power comes from the Volkswagen borrowed 5.2 litre V 10 engine mounted onto a modular Carbon Fibre cum Aluminum chassis with complete Carbon Fibre bodywork, which pushes the car to a top speed of 205+ mph, cracking the tonne in a mere 3.2 seconds. That’s fighting waters with the Porsches and the Ferraris!

Customers will have an option to customise it according to their own needs- anyways the rich are spoilt for choice! The full unveiling of the exotica will be done during the Geneva Motorshow.


A little backstory of the company. With the headquarters situated in Moncalieri in Italy, Italdesign is a highly reputed machining and designing company, which does various projects including designing, prototyping, initial testing and final production.


Back to the future again!


The company was founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Aldo Mantovani in 1968, making the company almost complete half a century.

The company currently employs 1000 people with its portfolio having successful ventures like Lancia Delta, DeLorean DMC-12, Maserati MC12, Audi 80 and Alfa Romeo 159. Volkswagen acquired Italdesign in 2010.


That’s some CV to boast about!
