Can the old world of Torino Car Design meet the new world of Open Source? Maybe.

For those of you who don't know of Jason Castriota, he is the "creative" behind the heralded Maserati Birdcage and the Ferrari P4/5 for American car collector James Glickenhaus - all under Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina. Jason is an incredibly talented young designer who dropped out of Art Center College of Design (ACCD) to work in Turin for Okuyama (who was formerly his instructor at ACCD).

The P4/5

And then, if there ever was a Cinderella Story in ancient and mystical world of Torino and the annals of famed car design, Lilli Bertone, widow of Nuccio Bertone and current head of Stile Bertone, has just announced that Jason is to be the new Design Director of the storied Turin-based, Stile Bertone.

Congratulations Jason.

Here is a video detailing his thoughts on his new position.



One interesting note is that despite the Top Secret world of Turin and Stile Bertone, the new website for the new car, Project M, is looking very open sourcey! Say it isn't so. I am amazed and excited to see the new world of wide open, meet the old world of closed.
