    Happy Birthday Karmann Ghia! 🙂

    One of the most beautiful cars ever made, love it!

  • The Karmann Ghia was designed by Luigi Segre in 1953, and not by Felice Boano, as you commented on this video.
    Luigi Segre was my father and he owned Carrozzeria Ghia in Torino since 1953 until his unexpected death in 26 February 1963, from complications during surgery. 

    My father had an exceptional talent and this is is widely known also for other beautiful cars, as "Batmobile", "Gilda", "Norsemann" and many, many other "Dream Cars".

    The prototype of the Karmann Ghia car was presented – as a surprise – to Mr.Karmann in the garage of Mr Charles Ledouche (France Motors) in Paris.
    In the contract signed by Luigi Segre with Mr.Wilhelm Karmann, it was expected that the construction of the Karmann Ghia cars would have been in Germany, and he would receive personally a commission for every car sold.

    No one expected this global success. The production of Karmann Ghia moved to Brasil with new factories. When my father died in 1963, Mr.Karmann  lawyers came to his funeral to advice my mother that the contract was expired with his death.
