Design studio Camal celebrates its fifth anniversary with a new project named Tributo. The Tributo is a 3D design exercise for a one-off, coachbuilt coupe based on the underpinnings and mechanical hardware of the Maserati GranTurismo.
The V8 powered sports a brand new body with a liftback styling. Camal Studios states:
"Stylistic influence is born from the famous Ghibli, Bora and Kashmin, and creates a new interpretation of “Trident” grand touring. The Fastback body was a natural choice for underlining the sporting character of the brand. Our intention was to merge a strong character with the essential characteristics of quality, comfort and elegance, that are typical of Maserati.
We looked for inspiration in our Turin car design heritage,and the work of best car designers from the past, in order to meet the most rigorous, structure design technics. A balance is achieved through use of simple sections along the central part of the car. The protruding wheel arches are reminiscent of the powerful V8 of ‘60s and ‘70s from overseas, reinforcing the visual impact of the car body that lives and enhances the symbiosis, with the basic architecture. The front and the rear are treated and embellished only in a functional way, thus emphasizing the simple and sculptural shapes, that makes Tributo an exercise in elegance, with a strong identity."

None of us want it to happen, but through no fault of your own, you can end up in an auto body shop repairer. It doesn’t matter how good a driver you are, as there is somebody out there who thinks they are better than you and will drive in such a way as to try to prove it. When you drive on the roads every day in the UK, you will come across newly qualified drivers that drive with great care but may be nervous. Then you have the boy racers flying about the roads with little or no consideration for other drivers.
