Exhibition with Vehicles from David Brown Automotive and Italdesign Giugiaro

When purchasing a vehicle, the #design is one of the most important selection criteria: It should be functional, ergonomic and aesthetic. Several creations made by world-famous automobile designers are awaiting the visitors in Hall 3 at the #essen Motor Show from November 26 to December 4 (November 25: Preview Day). Some of the concept cars, prototypes and studies have what it takes to become trendsetters in the history of automobile construction. This year, featuring: David Brown Automotive, Halcón SuperSport, Italdesign Giugiaro, Rinspeed and Zagato - ZED Milano.

The special exhibition is focusing, amongst other vehicles, on the Speedback GT, the first car manufactured by David Brown Automotive in Coventry in the Midlands of England. A maximum of 100 of this vehicle are to be built. The price is GBP 495,000. With regard to the #design, the objective of the firm's founder David Brown was to bring the 1960s back to life. And the car is actually very reminiscent of the famous Aston Martin DB5 which James Bond drove in several films. The technology of the Speedback GT is based on the Jaguar XKR whose turbocharged 5.0-litre V8 engine supplies 510 bhp. Optically, the factory's designers have created a classic, British GT.
