JUN 2013 - Bruno Sacco is a legend in automobile design. He gained his experience with the great "Carozzieris" Ghia and Pininfarina before commencing work with Daimler-Benz in Sindelfingen near Stuttgart in 1958. After several appointments, he became their Head Designer in 1975 and ultimately, in 1987, the Director of the Design Department. Following his retirement in 1999, he rejected numerous offers from various car manufacturers, deciding never to design automobiles again.
Good for Hansa because in 2001 the company was able to secure him as a design consultant. This led to a collaboration with Reinhard Zetsche and to the design successes Hansamurano (2003) and Hansacanyon (2005).
