Did Giugiaro fall out with the tour?

N According to the Automotive News, the shares were sold on Sunday (June 28, 2015). In an e-mail, Giorgetto and Fabrizo announced that they are leaving the board of directors of Italdesign Giugiaro SpA with immediate effect - Giorgetto Giugiaro is also stepping down as honorary chairman.

Another statement states that the legendary designer now wants to devote more time to his personal interests and the change will not affect the company's positive development. By the end of the year, Italdesign will have hired 250 employees since the takeover in 2010. According to rumors, there was a crisis between Giugiaro and the management team, writes the 'Automobile Produktion'.

Giugiaro drew Ghibli, Brera and Mangusta

Giorgetto Giugiaro founded his design forge in Turin in 1968 after having previously worked for Fiat, Bertone and Ghia. Giugiaro drew more than 100 series vehicles in his career, including the VW Golf I, the Fiat Panda and the Audi 80 as well as Alfa Brera, De Tomaso Mangusta, Lotus Esprit and Maserati Ghibli.
