Dedicated to Leonardo DaVinci

The DaVinci concept is a unique GT car from the Italian coachbuilder Italdesign. The vehicle is a homage to the true genius of Leonardo DaVinci. The car has a unique and super sleek design and a modern fully electric powertrain. The innovative design is special because it can be modified to house an internal combustion engine if needed or wanted.

The DaVinci as it’s shown at the Geneva Motor Show has an all-electric powertrain with two electric motors. If you were to put an internal combustion in the vehicle, Italdesign has a 4.0-liter V8 that will fit in there. Fitting that engine in there doesn’t change the car’s design at all, which is a good thing because it’s so attractive.

The Italdesign DaVinci is a pretty big car. It’s about the same size as a BMW 8-Series Coupe. It’s long, elegant, and sporty with some fantastic-looking gullwing doors. The interior is a technophile’s delight with three well-placed screens and a generally futuristic feel.

The DaVinci is just a concept. Italdesign made a point to say that it could be put into production with minimal changes to the design. Italdesign also says the design can fit many platforms that automakers already have, which should make it even more production viable. Overall it sounds like a super smart feat of engineering and design. We’d love to see a production version of the vehicle and its flexible design sounds exactly like what many automakers are looking for these days.
