ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour is a Lamborghini-Powered Crossover SUV [Photo Gallery]
The Volkswagen Group-owned company showed up in Geneva with "a type of GT car that did not exist until now" and man, we can't argue with that. It's difficult to wrap our heads around it and name names, so to speak, but ItalDesign says the Parcour is an "original concept of a SUV". And to top it all up, they even made a roadster version of it.
In short, it's a two-seater car with four-wheel drive powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 mounted in the Lamborghini Gallardo. But what's the deal with the crossover SUV claims you may ask? Well, it seems it's a vehicle capable of strolling on all kinds of terrain, including off-road, it has an adjustable ride height up to 13 inches, and it's supposedly able to carry its own weight of 3,400 pounds from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds and to a top speed of around 200 miles per hour.
"Parkour was devised as a new way of living and experiencing a metropolitan route creatively", states Fabrizio Giugiaro, "Parkour enthusiasts, who are referred to as traceurs or plotters, adapt their body to the surrounding environment pursuing, through their movements, not just spectacle but instead mainly maximum efficiency. The purpose of parkour is to move around as efficiently as possible. By efficiently I mean: simply, quickly and safely, which are characteristic features of our car."
You can read more about it in the ItalDesign Giugiaro press release below, but we can't help asking: is the Lancia Stratos back in some sort of "crossoverish" something something way?
