Audi Karmann Asso di Picche [1973]

Giorgetto Giugiaro

Giugiaro presented an Audi 80-based concept car at the 1973 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show as the first installment in a series of three experimental designs that were to spawn a production vehicle. The angular Asso di Picche (Ace of Spades) allowed the designer to further his ‘wedge’ principle with a graphic focus on the trapezium and an exaggerated cockpit dimension to grant more weight (and space) to a new, cylindrical instrument cluster.
