From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marcello Gandini
Born (1938-08-26) 26 August 1938 (age 81)
OccupationAutomobile designer
Known forLamborghini Countach

Marcello Gandini (born 26 August 1938) is an Italian car designer, known for his work with the automotive design house Gruppo Bertone, including his designs of the Lamborghini Miura, Countach and the Lamborghini Diablo. Gandini, along with noted Italian car designers Giorgetto Giugiaro and Leonardo Fioravanti, were all born in 1938, within months of each other.[1]

In a 2009 interview with Robert Cumberford, editor at Automobile Magazine, Gandini indicated "his design interests are focused on vehicle architecture, construction, assembly, and mechanisms – not appearance."[1] Gandini was one of twenty-five designers nominated for Car Designer of the Century.[citation needed]

Early life

The son of an orchestra conductor, Gandini was born in Turin.

In 1963, he approached Nuccio Bertone, head of the Gruppo Bertone company for work. However Giorgetto Giugiaro, then Bertone's chief designer, opposed him being hired.[1] When Giugiaro left Bertone two years later, Gandini was hired, and worked for the company for fourteen years.

Creator of Stile Bertone in Caprie, Gandini served as general manager of the styling house, designing show cars as well as managing the construction of prototype automobiles.[1]

Gandini designed Lamborghini's groundbreaking mid-engined Miura and extreme Countach, as well as many practical cars such as the Citroën BX, the first-generation BMW 5 Series (E12), the Innocenti Mini, and the Renault Supercinq.[1] He introduced the concept of scissor doors with the Alfa Romeo 33 Carabo prototype, while the Lancia Stratos sports car was another Gandini design.[1]

Gandini left Bertone in 1980, pursuing freelance automotive, industrial, and interior design.[1]

Gandini has worked in other areas, including home architecture, the design of a nightclub interior, and the body styling of the Heli-Sport CH-7 helicopter.[1]
