1996 Ford Saetta (Ghia)
Ghia Saetta broke die path for the radical new Ka
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 the use of carbon fibre. 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-coloured 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 colours, with electric blue and silver as the most dominant.
