He was born in Los Angeles in 1956. At the age of 16 he saw a photo of Bertone's Lancia Stratos Prototipo Zero, and decided to become a car designer in Turin, where he moved in 1979. He then became Design Director of Lancia, then Fiat, and Bertone.
Among the many projects that bear his signature, the Fiat Bravo/Brava/Marea, the Lancia Thesis, Lybra, Ypsilon, and Fiat Ducato. He is also famous for many cutting-edge concept cars such as the Lancia Dialogos (the world's first autonomous luxury car), the Alfa Romeo Pandion, the Jaguar B99, and many non-automotive projects such as AgustaWestland's Project Zero (the world's first eVTOL), the Mangusta 65 Open yacht and the Frecciarossa 1000 high speed train. He has also designed limousines for Pope John Paul II in 1999.
In 2011 he was inducted into the Car Design Hall of Fame at the National Automobile Museum in Turin and was placed 31st among the Top 50 Car Designers of all time by Magneto magazine in 2021.
