Italdesign, which belongs to the Volkswagen Group, announced on February 15 that it was establishing the new Italdesign Automobili Speciali brand as its Italian design studio.
The new brand’s aim is to produce mass market cars in extremely small quantities for collectors. Italdesign has produced limited edition models such as the BMW M1 and Volkswagen W12 in the past and the new brand will continue to do so.
It plans to introduce Italdesign Automobili Speciali’s first model at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show in March.
Italdesign has unveiled the new brand’s logo.
