The Italdesign DaVinci is an electric grand touring concept that has been dedicated to Leonardo DaVinci 500 years after his death. Designed and conceived to be easily adjusted to production spec and even be altered to suit the design of several major manufacturers, Italdesign have created their idea of the electric GT car of the near future.
"We wanted to pay homage to Leonardo's genius by symbolically dedicating this vehicle to him," explains Filippo Perini, Head of Innovation Design. "Leonardo was an ante-litteram engineer, an eclectic personality whose interests ranged from painting to sculpture, architecture, graphical design and experimentation. His eclectic approach is a strong inspiration for our day-by-day work".
"Every showcar made in Italdesign is the manifesto of our activities, skills and competences and the result of a 1,000 people teamwork - continues Jörg Astalosch, CEO of Italdesign. All our units are fully engaged in these projects: Styling, Engineering, and, of course, the Showcar Construction Department, where technology and craftmanship combine to build up a car that is unique in the world".
