Volkswagen up! Azzura Sailing Team
Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Walter de Silva, the Volkswagen up! Azzura sailing team is a prototype of an open, small, eco-friendly automobile for the world’s marinas. Giorgetto Giugiaro, born in Garessio – a town near the Ligurian coast where the sea breezes blow strong – and Walter de Silva – born in Lecco on Lake Como – have extended the potential range of the New Small Family here to include a nautical version. The prototype’s name comes from a yacht club on the Costa Smeralda.

The VW up! azzurra sailing team retains the original character of the up! with its precise and appealing lines. Yet the concept vehicle is completely open – there are no doors or roof. This lets the driver and passengers enjoy the summer breezes, as if they were aboard a boat.

High-tech and highly stylish materials are used inside the VW up! Azzura sailing team, all of which are completely waterproof, and they intentionally resemble the fittings of a luxury yacht. These features include the four seats in white-blue leather, numerous chrome components and a dashboard in mahogany with maple wood inlays. Its surfaces are coated in a synthetic resin.

The Volkswagen up! azzurra sailing team is more than just a prototype – it forges a link between the heritages of Italian yachts and German automobiles.
