New proportions for citycars.

STILETORINO Lab recently has directed its research engagement on citycar tipologies and it is possible to define this vehicle as the real precursor of citycars to want to introduce new proportions in small cars. Set to debut at the 2010 Geneva motor show, the MACROMICRO (macro movements on micro vehicle) is STILETORINO Lab’s latest concept, offering some insight into the creative mind of CEO Andrea Ciampaglia. Somewhat tame in appearance to previous concepts, the Macromicro urges that 'anyone not blinded by horsepowers , chrome tinsel and top-speed frenzy should take a closer look'. The exterior of the car is said to evoke feelings and memories of the South of Germany - the Baviera - in the last years. Its clean, uncluttered minimal bodywork features very unusual details. The Macromicro, as the name suggests, makes to be a fast, urban commuter with an extensive use of steel material on the exterior body. The seats and many other interior features are made from a carbon fiber, while the simplistic styling of the exterior is likely to be carried over to the interior. The electric MACROMICRO concept measures in at 22560 mm long, with a wheelbase of just over 2000mm,hight 1.89and 1.70 wide.
"It is above all proportion that we must change in car design definition. So the add of more and ever more graphical elements to traditional or not really innovative shapes can be considered as a not useful exercise."Andrea Ciampaglia says.
