VW revealed its work of art at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

Volkswagen revealed to the world the Up azzurra at the Auto Show in Frankfurt. The model is the result of a lot of the hard work Giorgetto Giugiaro and Walter de Silva did.
As you can see, it's a very interesting design study. The inspiration actually came from the nautical world. The up azzurra is a prototype for an open, small vehicle that is also eco-friendly and that can be used around marinas. The roots of the name come from a yacht club on the Costa Smeralda.
As you can see in the pictures, the up azzurra is a completely opened vehicle, with no roof, doors or windows. This way all the passengers can feel free and enjoy the beauty of the nature. Instead of the rear seats, the carmaker equipped the model with wooden surface. Another great thing about the up azzurro is that it's waterproof as you will be able to find them on luxury yachts.
This is just a prototype and there are few chances the German carmaker will send it to production looking like this.
