I'm puzzled here... If I'm not wrong Italy hasn't produced any military transportation vehicles since the WWII except for armoured vehicles. I believe they are using foreign military vehicles.
So is the concept supposed to be based on some of their domestic armoured vehicles or some of the foreign transportation vehicles in their service?
The HUMVEE was adopted by JEEP to create the HUMMER, the HUMVEE was created in 1983, yet is still being produced in various models in 2005.
So find something the italian army used, or is still using(not very much im sure), and adapt it into a product by one of the listed Italian car companies.
if i recall right, there was some fugly offroad ATV by lamborghini sent for some army evaluation a decade or two back. Too tired after the last botched idm to think about working on this though.
mmmmmmmm.... fun one; I suck total ass at vehicles.
Found this one; probably way too easy though
This one is much more interesting:
Edit: Ooo lordy, hit the mother load, complete with schematics, galleries and video:
And the wierd thing is, I think you can buy them too... that is if you were your own country or something.

try to remember that an italian car designer will be the one manufactoring them, so review their car designs to review what their principles of design are.
Here's a quick one, as that I will not have time later in the week to devote to this:
2.5 hrs, 2H Pencil and 0.5 Mechanical HB Pencil, on 7x11'' 65lb paper.
The Centauro-CIV is the civilian heavy-industry redesign of the Centauro Infantry Fighting Vehicle. The original vehicle was jointly designed and produced by the Iveco, Fiat - Oto Melara production group. When redesigned for civilian applications, Fiat handled both production and redesign.
While the vehicle is somewhat unchanged in basic appearance, it is much lighter, as that all armor has been removed, and many military systems (Fire Control computer, NBC Scrubber, etc.) have been removed. The powerplant and drivetrain are largely unchanged, but minor tweaks to the engine were done for fuel economy and to meet emission standards.
The focus of the redesign was to play to the Centauro's strengths as a durable, large, powerful platform. The Centauro-CIV vehicle is setup for the easy design and fitting of a wide range of "Industry Tool" pods, ranging from simple platforms and containers for using the Centauro in shipping, to more advanced cranes, earth-shovels, and fire-fighting setups. The base vehicle also comes in varying numbers of wheels, and is avalible with rising axles for reducing rolling resistance when you don't need all 8 wheels on the ground. This versatility is what makes the Centauro-CIV so unique in the industry machinery sector.
The Centauro-CIV may not be pretty, but it is durable, powerful, and capable of anything you equip it for.
I now its not allowed to post a WIP, but i think this will inspire people.
Its a 21st century version of the Puma 4x4. It has 4WD but the engine
is in the rear ( i dont know if that is technically possible). It has 6 seats
standard, only 1 delorean-like door, the front window can open to
access the trunk and it has a spoiler. So far I am just trying to find the
right design. I have only 1 question: Does the design have to be
here it is: http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d4...74/Puma4x4.jpg
Instead of a 4x4 I am going to make a 6x6 now. Its a "bentley" amongst the SUV range. Its is a very big, luxurious and fast car which has 6 seats. It still needs some sketching before I get the best design. My next post will be the final design either in B/W or in color.

Idiot Apathy: thanks for the links this looks interesting
cheers for the links IA, fiat have done some of the Italian army gear so their design principles are already there kinda ish.
Been swamped at work, so I haven't had a ton of time to work on this, but here's my concept based on the Dardo Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
Ferrari Concept Dardo -- High Performance Pickup:
it would defenalty tear up the street.. o_0
hmmm i want one...xD
Just wondering, but this italian designed vehicle, is it also supposed to be able to drive and park on italian roads and in italian cities ? Becuase I don't believe any sensible person would drive something big as a Humvee in italy... at least not Rome...
