Design your own motorcar

What is coachbuilding?

In the early motoring days, when series production did not yet exist, the process of acquiring a new vehicle involved purchasing a chassis. After that, the customer approached a carrozzeria or coachbuilder, requesting a personal body design to be fitted on the chassis.
