IED Turin to Revive Cisitalia 202 Coupe with a New Concept Model in Geneva

Regarded by many as the template from which all great sports cars were born, the 1947 Cisitalia 202 is undoubtedly one of the most important automobiles in history. Designed by Battista “Pinin” Farina, it was honored by New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 1951.

To create a modern day successor to such a famous vehicle is a gargantuan task, but it’s one the students of the Master of Arts in Transportation Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design of Turin (IED) are willing to undertake.

The student will present a modern reinterpretation of the car named the Cisitalia 202 E, where “E” stands for “”evolution”, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.

“The concept faithfully reflects the design of the historic vehicle, with dimensions and power aligned with modern times,” said IED in a statement.

Further information will be released closer to the Geneva Salon.
