Where most of the people consider seventh decade as the last leg of their life, the Italy based 77 year old Marcello Gandini is working as an energetic youth of eighteen year who is waiting for the reaction of car enthusiasts towards his newly designed sports car Tamo Futuro. Manufactured by India based car maker Tata Motors, the Tamo Futuro is reported to make its first public appearance during the Geneva Motor Show 2017.
