Chubasco Concept Car

Gandini

The star of the traditional end-of-year meeting that De Tomaso held in 1990 was a static model designed by Marcello Gandini. It was a mid-engined Maserati supercar called the Chubasco.

The project was highly ambitious, with a structure of a central keel and a load-carrying power unit — a De Tomaso classic since the times of Vallelunga — rocker arm suspension, bodyshell suspended elastically and aerodynamic with directional air flow to optimise negative lift.
Evidently, the design embodied the stylistic trends of its creator. Not only in the cut of the rear wings or the passage between the windscreen and window, but also in it’s generally geometric volume, with the windscreen in line with the boot and flat, vertical sides.
An interesting and complex system of air inlets and outlets livened the whole lower part of the car. The roof that slid to the rear part permitted the car to be used as either a sports coupé as a “targa”.
