1996 Ford Saetta

Now clearly the genesis for the popular Ford Streetka, the Ghia Saetta concept debuted at the Turin Motor Show in 1996, featuring bold New Edge exterior design treatments featuring carbon fiber. Its architecture was based on Fiesta technology by Ghia to make the vehicle as production-feasible as possible.


Finished in electric blue, this stunning concept car featured a central arch connecting the upper frame of the windscreen with a bold, silver-colored architectural truss that gave it a purposeful look of strength through its functionality as a rollover protection bar. Detachable glass panels formed the roof.


The interior of Saetta was bold and futuristic. Designers were less concerned with the interior’s production feasibility and created an interior of unique shapes and bright colors, with electric blue and silver as the most dominant.
