Italdesign Giugiaro’s latest concept peek [w/video]Thu, 23 Feb 2012
Giugiaro has tweeted a mysterious video and second abstract image of its new concept car, due to be unveiled at Geneva next month.
The video is just as frustrating as the first image the design house released, with very few details revealed. However it gives an indication of the name of this widely anticipated concept, Italdesign Giugiaro captioning the video, "what's the name? Try and guess." Although the name is not exactly spelt out for the viewer, two letters best identified through squinting at the video in slow-motion – fly at the screen.
After the initial ‘G' (presumably signifying the name Giugiaro) the letters ‘B' and then ‘R' can be seen. Whether ‘BR' will be confirmed as the name of the concept, or merely one part, remains to be seen, but follow @IDGiugiaro on Twitter to receive daily updates.
Meanwhile the image shows what appears to be a hood-mounted induction system.
