Three designers, Chetan Rajput of India, Andrea Coccia of Italy and Jaime Cervates of Mexico, have beautifully combined the retro style of the 60s and 70s with a futuristic approach and the outcome is the wonderful, Maserati GT Garbin slated for launch in 2020. The Italian word ‘Gabrin’ means summer wind. This is much different from the usual ones that basically have minor modifications done in the existing car designs. They have given car design a new aspect. The designers are students of Transportation Design at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
The car design clearly indicates various influences from unlikely domains including fabrics, Armani fashion collection and even Spanish opera houses. The car, fitted with V12 engine, has classy interiors and artistically selected exteriors, fitted with blue-LED lights for maximum emphasis on surface. The doors too, are quite different than usual pull doors, used in cars. This exclusive door system provides dual advantage, of a large opening, within the same width. All these make this car really advanced and a futuristic machine indeed.
The four seater vehicle includes attractive interiors and luxuries like air conditioning, navigation and entertainment systems. The automobile giant, Fiat has sponsored this design project. Hence, as per the company’s terms, the concept is based on the existing model, Maserati GranTurismo.
