Report: Renowned designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro sells remaining shares of his own firm

Giorgetto Giugiaro might sound like a familiar individual, and that’s because he’s one of the most famous automotive designers ever to walk this planet. He’s the founder of Italdesign Giugiaro, which has been responsible for a very long list of aesthetically pleasing automobiles since 1968. But not only does he have his own design firm, he’s also worked for other famous designers such as Bertone and Ghia.

Some of his works include the DeLorean DMC12, Maserati Merak, the Lotus Esprit, countless Alfa Romeos, the BMW M1. And on the flipside, he also lent a hand in designing plenty of mainstream cars, from lots of Fiats, to several Hyundais, and even some Volkswagens like the 1974 Golf and Scirocco, as well as the 1973 Passat.

Needless to say, his resume is huge and given the fact that Mr. Giugiaro has been around for quite some time, AutomotiveNews reports he and his son, Fabrizio, just sold their remaining shares of his own company to Audi and Volkswagen AG.

This ultimately means Italdesign Guigiaro is officially a part of Volkswagen. That said, the prospect of more Italdesign Guigiaro-styled Volkswagens, Audis, and more kind of has us excited for the future of Volkswagen AG’s portfolios.
