There’s a revival of Stile Bertone, the iconic Italian design house that went bankrupt in 2014. And that revival begins with a supercar called the GB110.
Only 33 examples are planned, and according to the new Bertone, the car will be able to run on fuel made from plastic waste. The fuel will be supplied by a company called Select Fuel, which likely relies on a process known as pyrolysis to make the fuel, which involves heating plastic and combining it with certain additives.
Bertone is short on details, but the company said the GB110 will produce around 1,100 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. The car will also feature a 7-speed gearbox and all-wheel drive.
Performance estimates include a 0-62 mph time in 2.79 seconds, a 0-124 mph time in 6.79 seconds and a top speed of 236 mph.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, the GB110’s platform is likely borrowed from the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracán twins. The proportions and shape of the greenhouse seem particularly suited to the Huracán.
The rest of the exterior design is said to take inspiration from classic Bertones. Examples that come to mind are the 1970s Stratos HF Zero and the 2012 Nuccio concept cars. The GB110 will also feature forged alloy wheels measuring 21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the rear.
Inside, there will be a digital instrument cluster combined with multiple physical controls dominating the driver-oriented dashboard. There will also be a digital screen on the passenger side showing some gauges.
Deliveries are scheduled to begin in spring 2024. Bertone will then follow the GB110 with other limited-edition vehicles.
