The 2007 Giugiaro
Vadho was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland
and has thrilled car enthusiasts ever since. The 2-seat futuristic
style automobile is build with a custom tandem cockpit layout
on the left side and hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE)
and transmission on the right side.
and right sides, though are interchangeable depending upon the
country the Giugiaro Vadho will be driven in. The Giugiaro Vadho
uses the same engine as the BMW Hydrogen 7 automobile and the
same 7-speed SMG transmission as well.
As far as cool
cars, the Giugiaro Vadho take the cake (or power drink) as the cockpit
is driven via two joysticks that sit upon the driver's armrests.
These joysticks adjust for driving conditions such as curves to
aid the driver is a smooth transition and truly interactive feel
while inside the automobile. Aiding in the interactivity and gamer
feel is the by-wire technology for maneuvering, accelerating and
also has monitors on the center console to view what the side and
rear cameras see at all times. The rear seat passenger is also not
left out of the fun as this person also has a joystick to play with.
The joystick in the back seat controls a video monitor on the rear
of the driver's seat so that the one in the rear can see everything
the driver sees.
design of the Giugiaro Vadho also means that safety is a prime factor
when blowing down the road in this zero emission vehicle. The Giugiaro
Vadho has a roll bar attached to the cockpit glass and several different
airbags from different angles pop out as needed in any kind of impact.
What also makes
the Giugiarò Vadho a very cool car is the radar technology
used when backing up to park the car. In addition, infrared technology
is available for nighttime driving and the car is also a smart car
able to communicate with roadside infrastructure such as signals,
when this becomes available.
Italdesign, the Giugiarò Vadho meets the very definition
of a cool car with its eye-catching design, high performance and
maneuverability and all the bells and whistle a gaming enthusiast
or gadget-head would ever want in a vehicle.
