The DaVinci is a design concept for a Gran Turismo with a 100% electric drive. Its sporty nature combines with utmost refined elegance in both its exterior lines and interior design, placing it firmly in the premium segment.

Measuring 4,981mm in length and 2,124mm in width, it can comfortably seat four passengers. Its 2,900mm wide wheelbase and reduced overhangs confirm its sporting focus also in aesthetic terms, emphasised by a ground clearance of just 119mm.

In keeping with its tradition, the Italdesign Innovation Design Department headed by Filippo Perini, conceived the design of this concept car so that with just a few adjustments it can easily be adapted to series production and the family feeling of several brands. The few 'exotic' features typical of a showcar are concentrated in the expansive gullwing doors, which allow both the front and rear seats to be accessed at the same time, as well as in the rear optical units and aerodynamic lateral tailfins integrated in the doors.

"We wanted to pay homage to Leonardo's genius by symbolically dedicating this vehicle to him," explains Filippo Perini, Head of Innovation Design. "Leonardo was an ante-litteram engineer, an eclectic personality whose interests ranged from painting to sculpture, architecture, graphical design and experimentation. His eclectic approach is a strong inspiration for our day-by-day work".

"Every showcar made in Italdesign is the manifesto of our activities, skills and competences and the result of a 1,000 people teamwork - continues Jörg Astalosch, CEO of Italdesign. All our units are fully engaged in these projects: Styling, Engineering, and, of course, the Showcar Construction Department, where technology and craftmanship combine to build up a car that is unique in the world".

The Italdesign DaVinci has been 100% conceived, designed, planned and built at the Company's Moncalieri plant, in Italy.
