Italian car design studio Italdesign has revealed the “DaVinci”, a 100% electric GT concept, at the Geneva motor show.
Aimed at the luxury end of the market, it measures 4,981 mm long and 2,124 mm wide, and can comfortably seat up to four passengers.
The few ‘exotic’ features typical of a show car are concentrated in the expansive gullwing doors, which allow both the front and rear seats to be accessed at the same time, as well as in the rear lighting units and aerodynamic lateral tail-fins integrated in the doors.
Interior details include an asymmetrical dashboard that is slightly turned towards the driver. There are also three screens: One replaces the instrument panel behind the steering wheel, another is located in front of the passenger, and a third and larger unit is found above the central tunnel, incorporating all of the major functions, from infotainment to travel data, and from climate control to driver and passenger comfort.
The DaVinci has principally been created to show off Italdesign’s design-for-manufacture capabilities. The consultancy even says the concept car is ready for series production and could fit different platforms developed by different car brands.
“It is a project for the future; not a futuristic project. With a few changes it is ready for production,” explains company design boss, Filippo Perini.
“This is exactly our mission: To provide OEMs with new solutions and innovative ideas to trigger the markets,” adds Jörg Astalosch, Italdesign’s current CEO.
The DaVinci follows on from the Italdesign-badged Zerouno hypercar that was revealed back in 2017.
