When it comes to car design Giorgetto Giugiaro is like Basquiat, Banksy and Ken Done rolled into one. The Italian born industrial designer has produced some of the most iconic car designs of the 20th century, everything from the Back to the Future Delorean, to the sort of 1970s Italian supercars that can impregnate women from several hundred yards (aka, the 1968 Bizzarrini Manta).

Originally working with famed Italian brand Bertone, a young GG (which is what we’ve taken to calling him) was responsible for shaping the Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Bertone and several other mid '60s classics. That said, he really came into his own in the 1970s with his highly angular ‘folded paper’ style - think classic Lotus Esprit.

Oh, and when he wasn’t making cars that were too awesome for mass production, he was designing camera bodies for Nikon, computer prototypes for Apple and office furniture for Okamura. All of which is great, but this isn’t that kind of party… GG was named Car Designer of the Century 1999 and inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2002. Check the image gallery to see why.
