A concept streetcar can sometimes be a preview of what a car can be. In the case of the Giugiaro Brivido, it simply means a potential classic Italian car. Giorgetto Giugiaro has a long history of building classy road vehicles. In fact, with the Italian design for the Giuigiaro Brivido hybrid, it shows how elegant a road car can be. Hand-built with precision to the last detail; there is just something about an exclusive car that attracts the high-end market. The Italdesign vehicle graced the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, and it didn’t disappoint.
The Giugiaro Brivido is powered by a V6 engine that runs both in petrol and electricity. This says a lot considering the changing trends in the automotive market.
The Giugiaro Brivido is the ideal car for the future. Not only is this an environmentally friendly car, but this is also a high-performance vehicle. Powered by the 360 bhp, 3.0 V6 engine, expect a top speed of 170 miles per hour as its top speed. Also, the Giugiaro Brivido can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 5.8 seconds. Though it is not a stunning performance compared to the SLS AMG electric GT car, this is still a feat worth celebrating for Giugiaro.
The design of the Giugiaro Brivido is a combination of many high-end brads. For instance, Volkswagen and even the Porsche can be seen in the Giugiaro Brivido. Volkswagen has a program that can share platforms with different brands including Lamborghini and the Audi. This was maximized by the makers of the hybrid car.
A Big Draw
The Giugiaro Brivido was a big draw when it was unveiled in the 2012 Geneva Auto Show. Though the Giugiaro Brivido is a rare gem, this is a reminder of how good cars can be when it doesn’t enter a mass production phase. The rarity of the car even makes its hefty price tag reasonable.
Not only does it stand at par with the Mercedes, the Audi, and the Porsche, but it can also stand on its own as a rare hybrid and high-performance vehicle.
The Brivido provides a gullwing car similar to the Mercedes SLS. Not only does it become practical in a limited space, but it also provides class. It serves as a reminder of the good old days of GT car manufacturing. Brivido is a combination of today’s best technology. For instance, it makes use of carbon fiber material and aluminum to make the body light.
And since the concept really is to provide a 4 seater hybrid car, the interior of the car is more than just a GT car. It is also a comfortable vehicle for passengers.
The fancy interior reminds the passengers of a lounge chair in terms of its comfort. When you combine these factors with its superb handling, you can expect the best reviews from your critics. For a car that runs both on fuel and electricity, this is a preview of high-class Italian vehicles for the next decade or so. Pegged at $250,000, this hand-built Italian beauty has the potential to be a classic.
