An auto salon like the Geneva Motor Show isn't just a chance for automakers to show off their latest production and concept cars, but also for stoic design houses to shape the state of automotive design. So with Pininfarina, Bertone and Carrozzeria Touring all having released glimpses of the designs they will be unveiling this year at the Palexpo, so has ItalDesign Giugiaro.
As you can see, there's not much we can tell from this detail rendering, but what it does tell us is that the concept in question will be high-performance in orientation. Or at least look the part, anyway – minivans, hybrids and city cars seldom call for big air intakes like this one.

While formerly an independent design house, these days ItalDesign is owned by Volkswagen. Its last couple of designs – the Tex and the Go! – have both worn VW badges on the nose, so we'd expect this year's to sport one as well, although another brand in the group could get the action this time. What we wouldn't expect is for the show car to presage any specific production vehicle as much as outline a styling ethos for the German automaker. Watch this space for more.
