Pop.Up from Airbus and Italdesign looks to the future of ride-hailing.

Geneva

Does your car have vertical takeoff and landing capabilities?

Airbus is involved, and they actually know a thing or two about flying machines.

Italdesign, Airbus reportedly working on concept that would leave autonomous chassis behind.

Italdesign's idea of a flying car is a detachable, airlift-able cabin mounted on a self-driving chassis.

All-wheel drive joins four-wheel steering and doors inspired by beetles.

The Italdesign GTZero, which debuts at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, reminds us that electric cars to not have to be boring. Also, it has beetle doors.

The Bremen Classic Motor Show in Germany this year is focusing on the futuristic wedge designs of the 1970s, starting with the Alfa Romeo Caimano concept penned by Italdesign Giugiaro.

Report

Don't count Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio out of the design business just yet. After selling out to Volkswagen, they're going independent.

Report

Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son have sold their remaining 9.9 percent stake in Italdesign Giugiaro to Audi, and the two of them have resigned from the company that bears their name.

Italdesign Giugiaro Gea imagines a future fully electric luxury sedan with a motor powering each wheel. It's also meant to be completely autonomous and envisions the future where drivers are no longer necessary.

Report

Wolfgang Egger has bounced back and forth between Italy and Germany over the course of his career, and will now be bouncing somewhere else as he reportedly leaves his job as head of Italdesign.

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

Teased

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.

Frankfurt

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.

Volkswagen Group Night ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show always has some surprises, the first of which this year is the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept. The all-wheel-drive, turbo-diesel-powered supercar is similar to the Giugiaro Parcour Concept that was unveiled earlier this summer. In fact, the Parcour's creator, Italdesign Giugiaro, penned the Nanuk, and we suspect much of the former found its way into the latter - with some changes, of course.

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.

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.
