Giorgetto Giugiaro has designed more cars than we could name, but while most of them have been crowd-pleasers, not so many have been earth-friendly. Included in the Car Designer of the Century's projects are nitrous-spewing gas-guzzlers as the Lotus Esprit, the Bugatti EB112, the DeLorean DMC-12 and the Maserati Quattroporte (as well as some of the Nikon cameras they've been photographed with). But after years of designing decidedly un-green sportscars – the latest of which includes the Ferrari GG50 Giugiaro made for himself and the Giugiaro Mustang – Giorgetto's styling house Italdesign has switched to green concepts.

At last year's Geneva show, Italdesign unveiled the Vad.Ho concept, powered by a BMW-sourced hydrogen V12. Giugiaro is gearing up to unveil a new show car in Geneva next week, and has hinted that it will be a green concept of some sort, with the slogan "nature has never been so powerful" accompanying the teaser images the design house has shown so far on its website. Our sister-site Autoblog has been following the story, and they'll be sure to have more details from Switzerland when the wraps come off Giugiaro's 40th anniversary creation.
