    born 7 August 1938 he is an Italian automobile designer. He has worked on supercars and popular everyday vehicles. He was born in Garessio, Cuneo, Piedmont.

    Giugiaro was named Car Designer of the Century 1999 and inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2002.

    In addition to cars, Giugiaro has designed camera bodies for Nikon, computer prototypes for Apple, Navigation promenade of Porto Santo Stefano and even developed a new pasta shape "Marille", as well as office furniture for Okamura Corporation, He started his career at Bertone (1960–1965), then Ghia (1966–1968) then started his own firm Italdesign (1968–2015)

    Giugaro's earliest cars featured tautly arched shapes, such as the Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Bertone, De Tomaso Mangusta, Iso Grifo, and Maserati Ghibli. However, as the 1970s approached, Giugiaro's designs became increasingly angular, culminating in the "folded paper" era of the 1970s. Straight-lined designs such as the BMW M1, Maserati Bora, and Maserati Merak followed before a softer approach returned in the Calà, Maserati Spyder, and Ferrari GG50.

    He has over 200 cars over the term of his carrer, Alfa-Romeo, Iso Rivolta, Lancia, Lamborghini, Lotus, BMW, Maserati, DeTomaso, Fiat, SEAT, Saab, Porsche, DeLorean and more.
