ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour
The Volkswagen Group unveiled a daring concept car from ItalDesign Giugiaro at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show that’s called the Parcour. It’s a road-ready rendition on the Lamborghini Gallardo and is powered by a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10 engine sending 550 horsepower to all four wheels. The version shown at the auto show was a hardtop coupe, but the design house has also created a roadster. It can go from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and boasts a top speed of around 200 miles per hour. It also has a kind of terrain dial which can be used inside with settings for Comfort, Off-Road, Ice and Track modes, with a suspension system that the company says is a pushrod arrangement, minus the pushrods, which have been replaced by a second set of shocks, which means there are eight shocks in total, two at each corner. In Track mode, which lowers the car as far as possible, just four of the shocks are used.
