Autocar Logo By Richard Dredge of Autocar | Slide 1 of 51: Giugiaro entered his work into a student exhibition in 1955, where it was spotted by Fiat's technical director Dante Giacosa; the result was a four-year stint at Fiat before moving to Bertone. By 1968 Giugiaro had set up his own design studio called Italdesign; we marked its half-century earlier in the year at autocar.co.uk/slideshow/genius-italdesign. Check it out for even more Giugiaro greats including the Alfasud, Maserati Bora and a raft of concepts.
