Car design geniuses Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro unveiled the “eyes” of the new luxury electric Kangaroo concept. The full electric beast will be revealed at the upcoming 2019 Geneva Motor Show/ GIMS (7-17 March, 2019).
The new GFG electric hyper-suv features two seats, four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. Kangaroo will jump to 0-100 Km/h in 3.5 seconds and will develop a top speed of over 250 Km/h. On any terrain, says GFG engineers.
The electric car platform has been developed in collaboration with CH Auto and presents a carbon fiber body covering an advanced aluminium space frame.
“Currently – said Fabrizio Giugiaro, who has taken care of the styling with Giorgetto Giugiaro – we are only revealing the “eyes” of this extraordinary concept that, as in our tradition, will be completely unveiled in Geneva and drivable after the show on any terrain”.
GFG Style was born in 2015 from the experience in the field of car design of its founders, Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro. Giorgetto is known all over the world as oneof the most successful designers in automotive history. Fabrizio has been active in car design, industrial design and the planning and development of car interiors and exteriorsfor public and private clients for over 30 years.
They have been directly responsible for creating over 300 standard production models and more than 200 research prototypes for numerous manufacturers. GFG Style operates two premises in Moncalieri (Turin): its headquarters and an operational building. Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro have thus established the conditions that allow them make use of their personal skills to develop automotive projects with the facilities of a new styling center that generates innovative ideas using the most futuristic simulation and virtual reality technologies; the development of models and styling prototypes benefits from the specialist automotive collaboration agreements consolidated in 50 years of activity that the automotive district of Turin can offer.
Today, GFG cars offers the motor industry a wide range of services and consultancies, centred on the conception, design and development of new vehicles and products: from styling to feasibility, modeling and prototyping, right down to the construction of show cars.
GFG Sibylla GG 80
Last October, at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, GFG unveiled GFG Sibylla GG 80, a replica of the car originally launched in Geneva 2018. Sibylla GG 80 is a new electric concept vehicle that brings together beautiful design with beautiful energy, to signpost the future of mobility.
The name Sibylla was chosen in reference to the figure from Latin mythology endowedwith the ability to provide answers and predict the future. This connects to the ability of the EnOS™ platform to make the car smart within the wider energy ecosystem, able to provide data from the external world and support the future of e-mobility. It is also a fitting tribute to Giorgetto’s mother, named Sibilla.
