Degler Calendar pays homage to iconic Bertone Concept Cars

The first limited edition calendar by Degler Studio pays homage to the exotic and provocative concept cars created by Bertone in 60 years of activity.


Degler Calendar is a new product created for lovers of automotive art and culture. Each year will be focused on a specific automotive theme: the first 2014 edition pays tribute to the concept cars built by Bertone, from the 1947 Fiat Barchetta to the 2010 Alfa Romeo Pandion.

Piotr Degler and the 1968 Bertone Alfa Romeo Carabo Concept

The selection of 12 unique models – considered among the most important concept cars in automotive history and located in museums and private collections around the world – were shot by the Degler Studio founder, automotive photographer and former Bertone designer Piotr Degler.

For the presentation of the calendar, Degler has also produced an interesting 7 minute video – reported below – featuring interviews with Bertone Design Director Mike Robinson and legendary designer and former general manager of Stile Bertone Marcello Gandini, who penned iconic cars like the 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo, the 1970 Lancia Stratos Zero and the Lamborghini Miura and Countach.

In the video Marcello Gandini explains how the concept cars built in the past were almost “fully working” vehicles, very different from today’s concept, defined as “fake cars – fiberglass cars, basically just a bit more than maquettes.”
