Italdesign Giugiaro has turned its design talents to Volkswagen's MQB platform, revealing this, the Clipper MPV, at the Geneva Motor Show.

2What has Italdesign Giugiaro got in store for us in Geneva this year?

Think of famous Italian design firms and you'll likely conjure up names like Pininfarina, Bertone and Zagato. But don't forget Italdesign. The firm started by Giorgetto Giugiaro has been responsible for more designs for more automakers than we would care to count. Like Ford bought Ghia in 1970 and De Tomaso took over Vignale the year before that, Italdesign Giugiaro was subsumed into the Volkswagen Group (via Audi and Lamborghini) in 2010 – but that hasn't stopped the studio from creating.

23Audi Nanuk Concept likes Parcour, puts four rings on it

Without a doubt, one of the coolest (and weirdest) debuts from this year's Geneva Motor Show had to be the Italdesign Giugiaro Parcour concept. And ever since the off-road performance coupe with Lamborgini guts made its debut, we've sort of been smitten with it. We figured this neat two-door would be a one-and-done show car, but to our delight, the folks at Italdesign worked with Audi to create this, the Nanuk Quattro Concept, which makes its debut here at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

We've seen the ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour on the move, but that was in B-roll. Car and Driver sent John Lamm to get a personal feeling for the blood-red concept that's powered by a 550-horsepower Lamborghini V10 and is half SUV, half track star, and we're thankful.

26ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour concept gets a move on

The rather awesome ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour concept first seen at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show hasn't been affixed to some museum plinth just yet. The high-riding assemblage of curves, wedges and prisms laid over the carcass of a Lamborghini Gallardo – in both coupe and convertible forms – was sent out to play for the cameras, solely for our benefit.

Where do concepts go when their auto show circuit life is over? For many, it's off to the scrap heap, while others manage to find their way into various automotive museums and private collections. Yet it is a select few that enjoy the honor of actually being driven on open roads. What you see here is the latter.

3ItalDesign Giugiaro hints at Geneva-bound Volkswagen concept

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.

24Giugiaro's original Lamborghini design unearthed and realized 50 years later

If you had asked us just a few days ago if Giorgetto Giugiaro was behind the design of any production Lamborghini, we probably would have answered, Sure, he must have...right? Wrong. Because none of Lamborghini's road cars ever bore the famed designer's lines.

Before Pontiac unleashed the vile Aztek on the world, there was another, weirder car that bore the name. In 1988, Italdesign introduced the Aztec, a two-seat roadster that made extremely limited production and carried a $750,000 price tag when new.
