Post and discuss all general info about Eurostyle here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by Eurostyle.

Short-lived Carrozzeria Eurostyle of Turin debuted at the 1968 motor show of Turin with two cars, both based on Fiat mechanicals. Although pretty styled they weren?t exactly overwhelmed with positive reactions. It didn?t stop them however from returning the next year with restyled versions, based on the same models.

At the 1970 show Carrozzeria Eurostyle were seen for the last time, now with a rather revolutionary coachbuilt Porsche 914. After the show they were never heard of again. It is not sure how many cars Eurostyle actually built.

Little more success they had with the Franco Scaglione-designed LMX 2300 Sirex of which they built only 43 in their Turin premises from late 1968.

I once did a request about Eurostyle on a well known forum — without any success.
Coachbuild.com should be the place for more infos about this interisting Carrozzeria.

More cars highly appreciated!!!

I'm loving those obscure Carrozzerias. Who designed the cars at Eurostyle studio, who was the head-off? They made quite not the most beautiful cars, but had unique style.
Hard to believe that there's nothing more to figure out ...

Carrozzeria Eurostyle was founded by Michel Liprandi, an Italo-Argentine and fibreglass specialist, manufactured bodies for de Tomaso, Abarth and even Ferrari prototypes and the Turin based company LMX automobile.

According to Autolit.com this Copper Exemplar II was built by Carrozzeria Eurostyle. Is there anyone who can confirm this?

[...] this car had many mechanical innovations and demonstrated the use of copper , brass , and bronze . It was created by the Copper Development Association and designed by Mario Revelli . It featured an Oldsmobile Toronado Engine , built by Carrozzeria Eurostyle , Turin , Italy .

I'm not 100% convinced about it. Michel Liprandi (who should be French) was the founder of LMX, that had its spostscars coachbuilt by Eurostyle.
As far as I know, the founder of Eurostyle is an even less known guy called Mario Gatto.

In a publication from 1968, there is written:

Eurostyle di Marega Gino
10124 Torino - Via Artisti 19

Anyone who knows more?
