Ford Mustang
(Geneva 2007)

The Mustang by Giugiaro originally was presented at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2006.

In March 2007, I had the chance to see ItalDesigns suggestion for a new Mustang at the Geneva Motor Show.

There, I had the chance to see two different models, one at the stand of Vredestein, a tire company.
Giugiaro also designs tires for that company.

At the ItalDesign stand, there was a real, running prototype.

Inspired by the original 1964 Mustang, ItalDesign worked on a realistic, actual Mustang.

Back in 2003, ID already worked on an American car-icon, the Corvette.
(More about the ID Moray you can find here.)
Even in 2007, the Moray looks more futuristic, than the actual ID Mustang.

Compared to the actual, production-Mustang,
the Giugiaro design is just a little ahead of its time,
showing a more ideal, but less practical design.

The design includes a transparent roof, a missing trunk-hood, and some Lamborghini-like opening doors,
a must to make cars a little more interesting...
