Design students of the Master of Arts in Transportation Design developed the Cisitalia 202 E (Evolution) Concept at the IED in Turin as part of their work experience program during the 2010-2011 academic year.

IED has announced that, "the concept faithfully reflects the design of the historic vehicle, with dimensions and power aligned with modern times."

Technical partners of the project include CECOMP (prototype construction), Pirelli, OZ Racing and ABET Laminati.

The original Cisitalia 202 was produced until 1952 and was based on a tubular chassis, and was the first the presented the different external elements as one volume. In many ways it is regarded as one of the first truly modern piece of automotive design.
