This Ghia Giloa Coupe was designed for the 1955 Turin Motor Show in Italy. It is a striking design and foretold the design direction of many American cars later in the decade. Can you spot a De Soto or Chrysler from the late 50s visible in this view?
If the design is not enough it is power by a 1941 cc OSCA turbine! I walked behind the car as it idled by and the thrust from the big exhaust at even that low speed was like a strong hot summer wind.
These photos were all taken at the 2010 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance where this vehicle was displayed as one of the Motor Trend cover cars. To see more photos and read more about this beauty, Click Here.
