Built in 1996, the only example of the Ford GhiVivace concept car is up for sale at the Bringatrailer site. The price of the lot is now $ 1,150 (a little over 87 thousand rubles), but the reason for such a low rate is simple: the concept has no engine or interior.
A quarter of a century ago, with the GhiVivace prototype, Ford pursued two goals: to explore the possibilities of using plastic in combination with an aluminum space frame and to showcase new trends in corporate identity.
- The show car was only a design model: it was devoid of the power plant and steering. There was no salon as such, the doors did not open, and the windows did not fall. You can move the "car" only on a cart.
- The seller mentions that the prototype is not in the best condition. The plastic panels of the concept have scratches, chips, cracks and traces of previous repairs.
- The concept, which is essentially a museum piece, is due to change ownership in 6 days, when the auction ends.
- In July of this year, at the same site, they sold another car that does not have the right to travel on public roads - a rocket car built to set speed records. As a result, it was purchased for 175 thousand dollars, that is, 13.3 million rubles.
