Some heralded the 2006 Giugiaro Mustang Concept as a portent of things to come for the Blue Oval's successful pony car. While that may be the case, we hope what happened to the car last Friday is not a bad omen for the next iteration of the Mustang. The Mustang Giugiaro Concept's designer, Fabrizio Giugiaro himself, was driving the car in Sofia, Bulgaria after showing it an exhibition when he scraped one of its concept rims against a concrete curb. While the damage was limited to just the front passenger-side rim, we suspect it will cost more to fix than buying a new Mustang outright.

Though over a year old since it was introduced at the L.A. Auto Show in 2006, the Guigiaro Mustang still managed to impress the Bulgarians, who said of the car, "words simply fail to describe the interpretation of the world-class coachbuilder." We agree, though we could come up with a few words to describe his parking abilities.

      You've got to love that the only thing custom about those wheels is the color matching and the center cap. This is not a high dollar item.

      Those are OZ wheels with the center piece painted to match the car's body. Nothing that will cost out of this world to fix.

        Great catch! Upon a closer look the "O-Z" logo is even visibile on the spoke near the scratch!

        They'll just need to buy a new wheel and a bit of orange paint!

        John Neff has been jfa'owned, lol. Hey, let's be overly dramatic to make the car seem incredibly exclusive! The guy shouldn't have stopped with the wheel, he could have done everyone a favor, took it into a narrow back alley and ping ponged that thing off of both walls until he got out the other end. I thought The Wraith was an awesome looking car in 1986. It took 21 years to realize it sucks. This took about 21 seconds. I hereby propose a ban on any further modified Mustangs of any kind.

        Ooooo..... something shiny... wait.. is that a scratch?
      • 7 Years Ago
      The side looks like a cheap aston.
      • 7 Years Ago
      That'll buff right out! (seriously, it might!)

      If these really are one-off rims for this car only, I'm willing to bet he had more than four made. He'll slap on another and have the damaged one repaired.

      I inherit cars from my wife and the first thing I have to do is repair the wheels and front bumper.
