Italian styling company Bertone has unveiled its latest concept car in Geneva
6 March 2012

Italian styling company Bertone has unveiled its latest concept car, the Bertone Nuccio, at the Geneva motor show. The striking concept – named in honour of Giuseppe ‘Nuccio’ Bertone, former owner of the Turinese design house, is described as an ‘extreme sportscar that puts an evolutionary imprint on the concept that is built into Bertone’s DNA: the mid-rear engined berlinetta’.

No details of the powertrain that would underpin the Nuccio have been revealed. The car has a low, muscular one-box design that is part of the company’s historic tradition.

The Nuccio will be under the spotlight at several events as Bertone celebrates its centenary. After the Geneva motor show the car will appar at the Beijing show in April and at the Turin National Car Museum in May.

The nose and roof line are very reminiscent of the Stratos Zero concept from 1970. Like it a lot!

Is it just me or is the front look like it's back-to-front?, looks interesting.

In reality it's all accademic. This has been done just to show off their design ability and incorperate their latest styling concepts, some of which may filter in to their main stream designs.

The overall package is okay in an 80's / 90's supercar sort of way but doesn't do anything new.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

beautiful, exquisite, and therefore dangerously un-macho to make any headway in the muscle-flexing world of super/hyper cars

Glad I'm not the only one who sees an 80's showcar in this thing. It looks like it's fallen straight out of one of those appalling Stallone/Schwarzenegger 'futuristic' movies.
