Ferrari GG50 by Giorgetto Giugiaro

Source: http://www.bridgestone.co.jp/english/news/051005.html

Looks like a one off showcar built by Giorgetto Giugiaro based on a Ferrari. I read some other sources that indicated a 612 based car. Couldn't find any pictures yet.

It is a shame I don't live in Tokyo anymore. According to a recent email from United Airline I could get there for $500 during that week....hummm....is it worth it?

I wouldn't pay $500 and fly for 10 hours just to see a car. It will probably travel around the world since it is quite expensive to build a car like that (I assume) so they won't keep it for one show.

I like the sideview... I think it's the only side of the car I like. That massive windshield looks kinda cool though.

I dont know about this. :-?


I dont like the huge window, but it is a design piece so I guess theres got to be some room for innovation/creativity. Not my thing I guess.

My biggest complaint is its resemblence to a corvette! No thanks. I'd like to keep my ferrari italian thanks very much!

I dunno, I guess I still havent made up my mind.

One thing that struck me as odd is the incorporation of a folding rear seat. I dont know if thats really important to tell you the truth, and the incorporation of practicality into the design seems kind of like they missed the idea behind 'Ferrari'.

Next thing you know the GG 50-a will have a 4 cylinder engine to optimize mpg and a roof rack for your bike.

Very cool PDF, and very informative. Too bad it didn't have some photos of the car included.

i dunno... i'm not a big fan of Giugiaro's work,... on a recent trip to Turino, Italy for the launch of the latest RUF car (where i was also able to meet Mr. Pininfarina! lol), some Italian dude pulls up in an Aston Martin, designed by Guigiaro.. it was a concept of the DB7 which Aston never adopted.....

i thought the thing was hideous.. he put masking tape on the front hood as a 'style' ... i got pix somewhere.. i'll try and dig 'em up.. :green:
