Spawning from Italdesign, the famous Italian design house responsible for models such as the BMW M1 and Audi Q2, Italdesign Automobili Speciali will produce bespoke, low-volume models for collectors.

Its first car has been previewed in a series of images. They show angular lines and aerodynamic features, suggesting it is a sports or supercar. Italdesign backs this up with the words “powerful engine” in its statement. It has suggested five models will be produced.

Italdesign bosses voiced intentions to create a new company last year. In a new statement, CEO Jörg Astalosch, said “Today, one year later, we are delivering the first running testimonial. The brand Italdesign Automobili Speciali witnesses our long-term commitment in this business.
