1988 Italdesign Aztec Concept
The Aztec is a concept car introduced by ItalDesign in 1988. The two-seater is unique because the driver and passenger are separated, requiring the two parties to communicate electronically.
It was fitted with a five-cylinder DOHC 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) Audi Turbo engine and uses a four-wheel-drive system derived from Lancia Delta Integrale. Only 18 or 50 (according to different sources) of these cars were ever built, and one sold for $75,000 – far cheaper than the $225,000 they were sold for originally.
The designer, Giugiaro, also designed the Lotus Esprit and the Maserati Boomerang.
