    Backstory:
    • After Pininfarina's break with Ferrari in 1976, started he working with a previous Lancia chefdesigner Marcello Gandini and
      millionaire Antonio Tarasque and began designing on the XT in 1977. After the fall of the Italian Communist Party in 1977, was the Tarasque headquarters burned down by an Activist Group on 17th of June 1977, burning the plans and papers on the Pininfarina made V6 making Tarasque taking new routes. In the fear of losing their business, chose Antonio Tarasque to contact Audi for an engine for the XT. In December 1977 signs the chefdesigner Marcello Gandini and Antonio Tarasque a collaboration with Audi, giving Tarasque the option to use Audi's 2.2L OHV Inline 5 Turbo engine found in the Audi 100 (C1). This collaboration between Audi and Tarasque saved Tarasque.
