Italdesign Giugiaro Brivido
Famous automotive design firm Italdesign Giugiaro displayed the Brivido hybrid coupe concept car -- the name means "thrill" -- at the 2012 Geneva auto show. It has two large, sweeping doors with room inside for four people.
Beneath the Italian styling inside and out, the car has mechanical components from parent company Volkswagen Group. Because it's a concept car and Italdesign Giugiaro is first and foremost a design firm, the emphasis on the show car was on the design and not the mechanical details.
The company did say that the gasoline engine in the gasoline-electric hybrid car is a 3-liter that generates a substantial 360 horsepower. The company estimates a top speed of slightly more than 171 mph and speed from zero to 62 mph in 5.8 seconds.
There are a lot of high-tech touches on the inside, such as two cameras in place of rearview mirrors. The passenger side also gets its own dashboard, including an iPad integration system, which can be used to control media and navigation, and to access online content.
