Italdesign have given us a new digital concept of one of their old concept cars, the 1973 Audi Asso di Picche. This time is an electrified version of that car, reimagined for the current era.

The intention behind the original 1973 model was “a styling study for a sports 2+2 coupé built on an Audi 80 chassis and mechanics.” That ethos has continued with the Asso di Picche In Movimento, or “ace of spades in motion.”

According to Italdesign, the concept is built on a next-generation platform whose concept is shaped by safety and electrification. So the dimensions are 4.5m long, 1.2m tall, and just under 2m wide. To ensure aerodynamic efficiency, the bodywork is aluminium while the windows are polycarbonate.

On the roof is privacy glass for sun protection and, as is the current trend, cameras replace the rearview and wing mirrors. Additionally, there’s a front boot with space enough for two suitcases. There’s even an active spoiler as well.

Inside the cabin you’ll find bucket seats and a contemporary ultra-thing display on the dash. There’s even a scent synthesiser, making the little trees hanging from the mirror redundant. Something to keep in mind though is that Italdesign have said that they focused on aero performance rather than comfort.

Joquin Garcia, Italdesign Head of Design, said: “Fifty years later, an automobile’s design continues to be the formal interpretation of the concept of movement.”
