There were some pretty brutal car designs launched from many countries in the 1990s, but through it all, the Italians seemed to just about manage to keep everything a little more elegant.
At ‘90s Sunday, the Goodwood Motor Circuit was treated to some of the greatest designs that Italy produced, in an era that did admittedly marry a little brutality into the elegance of Italian engineering.
From the more refined, like the Ferrari 456, to the more physically imposing, like Lamborghini’s mighty Diablo or the Lancia Delta Integrale, it seems that the nation that gave us gelato managed to stay on the right design track.
Even then, there was still the odd aberration. While Chris Bangle’s Fiat Coupe has aged quite well, it didn’t go down particularly easily when it came out and remains a more brutalist work. Then there’s the Panda 4x4, which is awesome, but definitely a piece on industrial design rather than art.
