Today, in this 21st century, the tradition of Special Coachbuilding has revived with masterpieces based on Maseratis, Aston Martins, Rolls-Royces and Ferraris, as well as Corvettes and Spykers. These cars evoke the memories and values of the glorious past when automotive icons were created by independant designers and coachbuilders like Vignale, Figoni & Falashi, Saoutchik, Pourtout, Park Ward, Gangloff and many more.
Nowadays, with the advent of the ‘unibody’, the number of available rolling chassis is limited. Together with the more stringent legislation, this demands an increased level of creativity of the modern day coachbuilder. Still, within certain technical, legal and safety boundaries, virtually everything is possible.
