PIAZZA Model JR130

Commentary

It was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the designer of the 117 Coupe.

PIAZZA unveiled as Asso di Fiori (meaning “Ace of clubs” in Italian) at the 1979 Geneva Motor Show and attracted attention with its splendid, beautiful and elegant design.

The styling featured an impeccable flush surface and wedge-shape form that combined aerodynamics and riding comfort.

Some of PIAZZA’s advanced features were the world’s first memory tilt steering, variable multi-adjustable seats with quick-adjust mechanism, semi-tractable headlamps, digital meters and a satellite switch.

Origin of a name
