Ford Corrida by Ghia Concept 1976

Hideout Please

Ghia Corrida (1976)

The Ghia Corrida was the first Fiesta-based concept car, introduced at the Turin Motor Show in November of 1976, the year the Fiesta was introduced. Corrida means bullfight, and the Corrida Concept was Ghia's vision of a new age sports car with an array of safety features.

Corrida was not only based on a Fiesta, but was also powered by a Fiesta engine. It featured pneumatically operated gull wing doors hinged in two segments and electrically operated flaps for the headlamps to provide optimal aerodynamics performance. The rear luggage compartment was hinged at the bottom.

Corrida's driving environment was unique. The instrument cluster was an array of boxes that provided a distinctive look of compartmentalization. The concept car was bold orange with black accents.

Normally, i like 70's concept cars. But this one looks scarily awful in my opinion.

Not angular at all hehe i do like the doors.

And 'Corrida' means Race, as in racing someone.

'Corrida de touros' means Bullfight

At least in portuguese. Maybe in spanish it has a direct meaning with bullfight.

It's pretty much the same, but corrida alone can be used for bullfight.

It's interesting, I'll give it that. I like the layout and the apparent concept (small and sporty with the added pizzazz of gulwing doors) but the styling definitely is a little out there.

Does corrida refer any more specifically to the running of the bulls before the actual fight? That's always been my conception but you would know a lot better than I do.

Actually,

Encierro = Bullrun
Corrida = Bullfight

It's curious because, correr means run in Spanish and cerrar, close.
