Dr. Giuseppe Rinaldi (born 1933) is one of the members of staff of A.V.I.A. and later the Lombardi Factory. It's a well kept secret that he is the designer and project leader of the production of the Lombardi Grand Prix.

For the design of the Lombardi Grand Prix two wooden maquettes of the car were made, both are still in his possesion.

In the first design of the Lombardi Grand Prix, the door windows were hooked instead of straight. It is said that Mr. Bertone, yes the great designer himself,made his personal compliments directly to Francis Lombardi with these words: "My compliments to you cause the invenction of lateral hooked  windows for the doors is a great invention...it will be a success".
