Mangusta Legacy Concept aims to honor the memory of famous Italian sports car




Every so often we come upon a concept car that, despite not offering any sort of real world specifications or possibility of coming to fruition, offers an unprecedented display of what makes a concept car design both refined, yet appropriately edgy.

The design of the original Mangusta was penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who at the time was working at Turin-based coachbuilder Ghia.

The car had a distinctive silhouette with a height of just 1,100 mm, and featured a very large windscreen, gullwing doors, and an essential interior.

Fascinated by this icon, Maxime decided to create a modern reinterpretation of the car, adapting its character to the modern technologies and design trends.

The result is the Mangusta Legacy Concept, an extreme, low sportscar which maintains the main design elements and character of the original.
