The bodywork covers the mechanical parts of this four-wheel drive vehicle with adjustable ground clearance and fitted with a dual compression engine with an output of approximately 800hp, it's a new kind of luxury that allows you to travel anywhere in any kind of weather.

The design of the chassis respects the importance of the mechanics and is dedicated to Castagna's most noteworthy creations that made him become famous in the Crazy Years: the Isotta Fraschini.

Its almost 6 metres of length have been "dressed" in an angular and slightly retro body that is something between a coupé and an MPV. It has numerous edges, surfaces and components that allow total customisation and colouration of its plumage. The interior of the passenger cab is easily accessible through the two doors that open like a book and have no central column: a running board appears automatically, acting as a footrest. The vehicle's height (163cm) and its ground clearance make access to the vehicle both easy and ergonomic: one does not feel as if one has to "climb" in or out of this vehicle.

All items and luggage find a suitable space in the boot compartment, which opens completely thanks to an hydraulic articulation (like Antonov's front style) and in the (temperature-controlled) central bulkhead compartment located between the engine compartment and the passenger cab. As in the period examples, in the Imperial Landaulet the back part of the glassed roof slides backwards, leaving the rear seats open to the elements.

The powerful dual xenon front headlights are height-adjustable from inside the vehicle and are complemented by led parking lights, turning indicator lights and fog lights: just like those at the rear. Both the front and rear bumpers are equipped with dynamic air scoops, in carbon fibre, to properly manage aerodynamic airflow and provide cooling for the components.
