Once the package had been defined, Giorgetto Giugiaro set to work on his drafting machine, a tool he has never abandoned and has always used with great skill. “Usually, for the first drawing, we compete with the computer and I finish first,” he says, amused, pointing out that the computer tools become valuable immediately afterwards, when it comes to developing the concept. Even from the orthogonal views drawn in pencil you can see all the characteristics of the Brivido, designed to offer four comfortable seats and ample space for luggage. Equipped with hybrid propulsion, the large front volume houses the 360 bhp 3 litre V6 engine, concealed by a specially designed bonnet with a large central V-shaped section in brushed aluminium. This is not a stylistic whim, explains Giugiaro, but a technical solution induced by the regulations: “The ‘double bonnet’ has prevented us from increasing the height by 30-40 mm to overcome the problem of hard points. The red part rises in the event of a pedestrian impact to cushion the impact, with an active safety system”.
