Bertone have released official pictures and details of the Bertone Nuccio Concept following an earlier preview two weeks ago. The extreme supercar concept will go on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March and will celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary.
The supercar concept is named in honour of Giuseppe Nuccio Bertone, former owner of the Turinese design house. No details of what powers or underpins this car have been released, however, the company have branded it an ‘extreme’ sports car so expect something special!
The design is typical of Bertone. Some of their most prolific designs, the Lamborghini Countach for example, have been in a similar fashion. The Nuccio Concept gets a low profile, wedge shape design with an innovative series of air intakes at the front, below a metal bumper strip proudly displaying the Bertone name. The profile of the car takes a lot from the Lamborghini Diablo with a recessed line allowing space for a set of rear-view mirrors.
An orange central stripe runs down the middle and the rear gets a set of dual-tailpipes. It’s an attractive design that makes use of a century of design experience. We can’t wait to see more and we’ll definitely be heading over to Bertone’s stand at the Geneva Auto Salon!
