Italdesign Giugiaro will display eleven vintage models at this year’s  Techno Classica Essen.
Included are a triumvirate of VW models, such as the first-generation Passat  (1973), Golf (1974) and Scirocco (1974).  Also on display are a Seat Ibiza (1984), Audi  80 (1978), Lamborghini Gallardo (2002), and the still stunningly gorgeous Volkswagen W12 Nardò prototype (2001).
Do these selections fairly represent the show’s theme of “automotive milestones”?
