Lapo Elkann’s adventure at Garage Italia Customs has ended: he had founded the creative hub (cars, motorcycles, boats and even touring planes) in 2017 after having already dedicated himself to customizing other models. A few weeks afteracquisition by Youngtimers Asset Company AG, evidently things did not work out and the office of honorary president – as well as a member of the Board of Directors – certainly limited the vision of Gianni Agnelli’s nephew. Effectively, from the Elkann factory there have always been cars that are never banal, perhaps at the limit (sometimes beyond) of the trash, which have conquered enthusiasts, including those who do not like tuning. Over the years, the ‘wow effect’ has partly declined, veering towards the interpretation of the concept restomod, but it is right to remember the most interesting creations (in this gallery), starting with the BMW i8 Futurism Edition.
