When I was in elementary school, I loved going to the library for one reason and one reason only. That little library had a collection of books about the future with illustrations by artists like Syd Mead. I was especially interested the future of transportation design.

These supercars of similar sentiment look like they're back from the future, but these pics are from a recent museum exhibit on classic car design in Torino, Italy called: Dream. This exhibit celebrated the the 1960s to 1970s era of design of the Pininfarina group and their contemporaries. That's the 1970
Pininfarina Modulo above, so aws. Check out these intense, yet minimalist interiors!

1968 Bertone Carabo

1972 Italdesign Boomerang

Good post! All of these resemble the beloved Delorean. Every boy's preferred futuristic car with the option of time travel. One of my favorite viewings of BTTF was with Mr. Kyality on Maui. Good times


Suh weet! Love these cars, great post.
