Giugiaro Parcour

Giugiaro is celebrating its 45th anniversary with the Pentacour – a Gran Turismo concept car that draws inspiration from the discipline “invented” by David Belle in France in the 1980s. Parcour is a two-seat car that combines elements from an SUV, a crossover, a GT and a mid-engine sports car. The concept will be offered in both coupe and roadster configurations.

The model is powered by a Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-liter V-10 engine that delivers a total of 550 horsepower and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just in 3.6 seconds. The concept is offered with four different driving modes — Comfort, Sport, Off-road and Ice — each being distinguished by a different color on the dashboard: white, red, orange and respectively blue.

On the exterior, the new Pentacour will feature two distinguishing traits: the A-pillar is detached from the windscreen and also acts as a deflector, while the rear pillar is designed to direct the air over the bonnet and toward the retractable spoiler. It sits on 22-inch wheels that raise the car from the ground significantly.
