By releasing ‘The Making of Karma GT Designed by Pininfarina’, the Southern California-based automaker is out to show the world what it took in order for this custom-made two door coupe variant of the new 2020 Revero GT to come to life.
The Karma GT is part of a trio of cars used to showcase the company’s short term, mid-term and long-term aspirations. The other two vehicles are the previously-mentioned 2020 Revero GT and the SC1 Vision Concept, the latter reflecting the brand’s fully electric plans.
California meets Italy
For the Karma GT, Pininfarina took a look at the Revero and while the fundamental engineering parameters were retained, the iconic Italian design house crafted a new body style, new panels and interior, for a completely different styling interpretation, compared to the four-door benchmark.
According to design boss Nazzareno Epifani, the Karma GT was given a strong front end presence with a long bonnet type of design, while the profile lines were described as “fluid”, in the sense that they are free-flowing and uninterrupted.
The GT also comes with a redesigned interior, wrapped in white and off-white leathers. From a distance, it looks pretty plush, but overall quality remains to be determined, especially if the car is to ever make it into production.
Speaking of which, Karma Automotive said that they will only build the GT (as a limited production model) if there’s enough consumer interest. Assembly would take place at Pininfarina’s facilities in Italy.
