Carrozzeria Castagna, the revitalized Italian automotive design firm is set to pull the sheet on its latest effort, the Gran Tourer Sport, at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 1.

The Milan-based coachbuilder has occupied itself lately with a number of MINI-based designs, but the firm itself has a rich history dating back to 1849. Details are slim on the rakish Gran Tourer Sport, but it’s obvious that Castagna’s pens were heavily influenced by a desire to update classic Rolls-Royce/Bentley design idioms.

(Thanks for the tip, Noah!)

      reminds me of those RR kits you could put on the old VW Bug - perhaps this is the concept for th "New Beetle"

      Who else would buy this ugly thing? Of course it's for the rappers and ballers.
      • 8 Years Ago
      I don't think this will be good advertising for the company. Maybe they'd consider coming up with something beautiful for the next Geneva Show.

      It's looking at me! :(

      does anybody else find the semi-ghetto background a tad out of place or is it just me... or are they subliminally targeting rappers and ballers already?

      Yeah, the headlights are too C3PO.
      • 8 Years Ago
