GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - In the 2008 our claim will be as in the past “Dream factory”. This definition has been dedicated to Castagna in 1932 by a journalist during a visit in the factory of via Montevideo.

Coupé Royale on ROLLS ROYCE Phantom basis

On the original chassis is been developed a Coupè version that increase the space of the back. The materials used for the interiors and the new design want to celebrate the Italian style. The body remains almost unchanged: the new configuration of the door gives to the vehicle new proportions, the front is been revised with led and new bi-xenon lamps. The use of carbon fibre allow the decrease of the total weight and give a more sport look at the vehicle. This is also confirmed by the 22” wheels equipped with sport pneumatics, by the Brembo brake system and the two compressors that tune up the engine at 643 CV.

An example of the new look for the creation realized on the new Fiat 500 basis. This is a preview of what our Atelier wants to realize as we already did with our version of the MINI. This vehicle is available with and without the wood inserts on the body and it’s characterized by the new door of the trunk that increase the load capacity to 440 dm.

Because of the many inquiries we realized a kit with external wood inserts that recreates a vintage and nostalgic look. The client can choose the kind of wood that prefers or the most technological materials as the carbon fibre. This kit can be shipped in every part of the world and be installed on the vehicle. For the presentation of these creations we chosed one of the Geneva wonderful villas with a breathtaking lake view.

During the ceremony we will also deliver the creations to their owners.
