    One of his first designs was the experimental Abarth 1500 Biposto of 1952. Inspired by the American Tucker Torpedo, it took aerodynamics to the extreme, with fins at the back and a protruded nose reminiscent of fighter jets. Bought by Packard, it would influence several American designers, like Harley Earl from Oldsmobile (his Oldsmobile Golden Roc...

    Alfa Romeo wanted to study the perfect aerodynamic shape for their cars, so they ordered three concept cars from Bertone, with one major demand: to lower the drag coefficient as much as possible. And lowered they did, as the three concept cars penned by Scaglione reached as low as 0.19 Cd (BAT 7). But they also inspired some of Alfa Romeo's later p...

    An evolution of the superb Alfa Romeo Disco Volante penned by Carrozzeria Touring, the 2000 Sportiva was made in only four examples – two coupés and two spiders. But its design by Scaglione, especially at the back, was carried on the Giulietta Sprint of 1957.

    Also known as the Alfa Romeo 1000 Abarth GT Bertone Coupé, this is one of Scaglione's best efforts. A small car (only 3.69 meters long and 1.55 meters wide) and very light (only 640 kg), the Abarth 1000 GT Coupé had a 1-liter straight engine developing only 87 hp but was pretty fast for its day. So fast, all three prototypes crashed, leaving us onl...

    The Giulietta SS had a drag coefficient of 0.28 (same as the Corvette C6) and was clearly inspired by the BAT design studies of the period. Only 1,366 units were produced, but the Giulietta SS is now one of the most sought-after cars of the period, raking around $180,000 at auctions. Hear this beautiful thing roar!

    This is the car that won the 1960 Le Mans at its category. Scaglione was assigned by Abarth to design a lightweight chassis for the 356B Carrera. He managed to do it in time, working with Viarengo & Filipponi Coachworks, and the 20 examples built sold like hot pancakes. But the Porsche engineers were less impressed and had to bring several technica...

    What would have happened if the first production Lamborghini, the 350 GT, would have kept most of the show car's design lines? We can't say if it would have been even more successful, but we can agree that the concept looked much better than the production car. Penned by Giorgio Prevedi under Scaglione's supervision, the 350 GTV has perfect proport...

    The road-legal version of the Tipo 33 racing car, the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is perhaps the most beautiful car designed by Scaglione. Only 18 examples were made, but the car was extremely advanced for its time: it introduced the world's first butterfly doors on a production car, it had an aluminum body on an aluminum tubular chassis and was able to...

    Towards the end of his career, Franco Scaglione invested a lot of time (and money) into Intermeccanica's cars, especially in the Indra, a project commissioned by Opel to bring affordable Italian design and American power to America. Powered by a 6-cyl engine or a GM 350 V8 powerplant, the Indra was very well received in North America. Unfortunately...
