Since 1997 the Vredestein brand has been collaborating with the world-famous Italian design consultancy, Giugiaro Design. Giogetto Giugiaro's design achievements have ranged from the very first Volkswagen Golf and the BMW M1 to famous cars for Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Bugatti and Lamborghini.
