Here's a photograph which I took at the London Motor Show in 1962. I didn't use a flash on the camera and as the Earls Court exhibition centre wasn't very well lit the quality of most of the photographs I took that day isn't brilliant.
This car is a design by Pio Manzu based on an Austin Healey 3000, and this is what the website autodesign.socialblog.us has to say about the car:
More than 40 years ago a young Italian designer, Pio Manzù, outlined the needs and guidelines for an harmonius development of individual mobility with a system of private and public transport. Four decades later his vision has not been implemented yet. It was not his fault. Arch. Enrico Leonardo Fagone, has presented his lecture on Pio Manzù and has agreed to share it with us. I am sure you will not miss a single line of his presentation. Giancarlo Perini.
PIO MANZU’ PIONEER OF CAR AND TRANSPORTATION DESIGN.
In the world of design, and car design in particular, many still remember the contribution of Pio Manzù, a young designer with an international training who died in a car accident in May 1969.
The son of the famous sculptor Giacomo Manzù, Pio Manzoni (Manzù) was born in 1939 in Bergamo and after high school in Italy, he joined the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm.
The school, founded by Max Bill, gave a new relevance to the teachings and methods of the Bauhaus. Before graduation, together with classmates Michael Conrad and Henner Werner, the young Manzù won a prestigious international competition held by the Année Automobile. The prize consisted in the execution of their own design (based on the bones of the Austin Healey 3000 mechanicals) to be built by Pininfarina in 1962. The prototype was first exhibited that year at the London Motor Show.
