Brivido is a nicely blend of the Italian styling with a German engineering

Cars often come loaded with national stereotypes. For example, Italian cars are known for being achingly beautiful, and (sometimes) frustratingly unreliable. The reverse is true of German cars: they are designed and built with fanatical attention to detail, but no have charisma. What if you could have the best of both world's best: a German car with Italian styling?

And back in the 2012, Italdesign Giugiaro shows what such a car might be like. Those car concept named the Italdesign Giugiaro Brivido. This car concept made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, in the event those concept was shown in two car models eachly a red colored car and the other one in a Martini Racing livery.

As we all knew in 2010, Volkswagen has bought a majority shares of thosee Italian styling house, so the Brivido can be use a VW platform. And this car was launched shortly before the company was launched their Parcour concept in the 2013.

The Brivido is a four-seat GT car with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Unlike rival Pininfarina, Italdesign did not follow the trend of coupe-like sedans; their car only has two doors. The gull wings-style make quite a statement, and the roof is almost entirely glass. Italdesign says this design improves visibility while making the cabin more pleasant.

The rest of the car is just as dramatic, with short overhangs, a sleek roofline, and slivers of LEDs for headlights. Instead of side view mirrors, Brivido sports tiny cameras that fold into the fenders. The body is made of aluminum and carbon fiber to make it as light as possible.

The interior design is as clever as the exterior is striking. The driver gets touchpads on the steering wheel to operate the sound system, climate control, and more, while the passenger gets their own instrument panel with trip information and controls for the entertainment systems. The car also has an built-in iPad docking system attached on the dashboard.

This car uses hybrid system with a VW's 3.0-liter V6 drivetrain has a capability to burst power of 360 hp, coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission and electric motor. Italdesign says those combination made a good acceleration for a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 171 mph.

The Brivido makes a pretty good case for a future collaboration between Volkswagen and Italdesign. The German company (along with corporate sibling Audi) helped improve the quality of brands such like Lamborghini and Bentley, so the concept has already been applied to real-world vehicles.
The Brivido is just a concept car, but it shows what the marriage of German engineering and Italian styling can produce. It could also foreshadow a world-beater from Volkswagen..... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOBLOG | DIGITALTRENDS | YAHOO]
