In 2006 they took the wraps off a new concept vehicle for the third consecutive time. This is not as odd as it may look at first sight as the company's headquarters is located just minutes from the vast exhibition center. After Kira in 2002 and Xtile in 2004, it was now time for the Izana to be shown to the public.

The two door coupe's name is derived from, 'Izanaginomikoto', a god in Japanese mythology who is believed to be the father of many gods and the creator of the ancient Japanese islands. An ambitious name for a project that Sivax wants to use to underline their commitment to coachbuilding in Japan. A combination of French flamboyance and Japanese technical excellence could indeed prove to be a big success.

It is immediately clear that the Izana is the best looking Sivax to day with its combination of modern touches and the classic front-engined GT-car shape. At a touch of a button hidden in the C-pillar the 'gullwing' doors open to reveal an airy and brightly upholstered interior. The most striking features are the sculpted seats and the floating center console.

Other than some dimensions, Sivax has released no technical details and it will most likely remain a show car only. This is unfortunate, as the Izana, packed with a powerful V8, would not look out of place in the range of any of the big Japanese manufactures.
