The Abarth brand is set to bring a new concept model to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Its offering comes as a result of collaborative work with the Istitute Europeo di Design of Turin (IED). The result is the sports coupe named Abarth Scorp-Ion and it was designed by seven IED students who worked under the supervision of designers Luca Borgogno from Pinifarina, and Luigi Giampaolo from Maserati.
The result of the collaboration was a design that bespoke a compact-sized sports car with lines that evoke the scorpion, all the while refraining from any references to the Fiat brand. The futuristic looking two-seater draws its power from four electric motors, one on each wheel. Further details are to be released only at the start of the Geneva show.
