[Video] Fiat XXX virtual prototype showing retro flavor image

The guys over at Idecore have been responsible for the creation of this interesting Fiat XXX retro-styled model and they now have also come up with the car’s official presentation video.

Fans of the Italian automotive art masters – from Bertone to Gandini – will surely appreciate this virtual Fiat XXX that comes from Idecore and Maltese Design. The render comes up with a proposed new sports car from the Italian automaker which takes the styling ideas from models that were thought by the aforementioned masters back in the 1970s and 1980s. The retro styling makes way for some modern manufacturing though – the body is slapped on a carbon fiber tube taken from the Alfa Romeo 4C, click in order to deliver a fun and lightweight two seater that would have handling as its main source of interest. And because it uses the basis of an existent model, check coming up with the production series version won’t require huge investments as well.

Moving on, the developers believe the contraption should have the heart and soul of the recently unveiled Fiat 124 spider – the turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that is also housed under the hood of numerous other Fiat Chrysler Automobiles models. For example, inside the Alfa Romeo Giulietta it has even been tuned to deliver a very promising 170 hp and the concept also takes from the latter model the Dual Pinion Active Steering system and the twin clutch transmission. We’re now rooting for Idecore to at least deliver a full size real life concept during the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.
