    1980 Isuzu 117 Coupe Giugiaro Edition

    Here are some pics of my 117 Coupe. I bought it in Japan in 2002 and restored it while I was living there. In 2004, I shipped it back to New Zealand.

    The Giugiaro Edition was a limited production model introduced in 1979 by Isuzu as a 'thank you' to Giorgetto Giugiaro for the positive reaction to the Ace of Clubs (Piazza/Impulse) show car at the Geneva Motor Show.

    In Japan.





    In NZ.

    From memory, Paul wasnt it? I used to be on the Piazza forums way back when i had two of the electrical nightmares.

    Welcome, wouldnt be bad if you put some pics up of your old Piazzas and maybe convinced Alex to come on as well [that said, with the amount he owns i reckon the forum would crash LOL]

    can you provide more info on this limited production model pls?
    -what are its specific features in which it is different from "common" versions?
    -what was the number of "Giugiaro Edition" produced?

    I'm asking because my 117 was specified as "designer's version model" in catalogue list, too. But (shame I don't know much about the edition's specific. Maybe I have a "plain" car and the catalogue list was a fraud.

    Thanks in advance.

    It would appear that your model is a 117 Coupe Blanc (white) edition.

    The Blanc edition was a limited model released in 1979. Only 300 were produced. It had 23 unique differences from the 117 Coupe XC model on which it was based.

    These included;

    'Special White' paint colour
    White bumpers
    Tinted windscreen with blue sun strip
    Power windows
    Electric mirrors
    4 speaker stereo
    White alloy wheels
    A/C
    Blue carpeting
    Blue/white seat trim
    Blue/white interior trim
    Blue/black instrument panel
    Silver trim on the outside mirrors

    Hope this helps.
