Bertone was founded 110 years ago and unfortunately went bankrupt in 2014. The rights to the name then went to the brothers Mauro and Jean-Franck Ricci in 2020 and have now presented the Bertone GB110, of which 33 are to be built.
The Ricci brothers have some exciting things to say about their new car: 1100 hp and 1100 Nm of maximum torque from an internal combustion engine that turns red at 8400 rpm. With such performance specifications, one has to assume that something will be helped, we assume electricity in some form. Thanks to all-wheel drive, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.79 seconds and has a top speed of 380 km/h. It is also interesting that the Bertone GB110 can run on a synthetic fuel made from plastic waste. We have already seen Porsche investing heavily in green synthetic fuels, they are clearly not alone.
The shape, well, Bertone (read: Franco Scaglione, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Marcello Gandini) has created some absolute masterpieces like the Lamborghini Countach, Miura, countless Alfas and many more. The Italians wanted to hint at elements of the Stratos Zero and a bit of the Countach with the GB110. Bertone writes in his description of the GB110 that the GB110 is “based on components from a German manufacturer”.
If you take a closer look at the door handles, you can see that this is close to a Huracan and, yes, the Audi R8. In the future, even more models will bear the Bertone name (we assume: an SUV); we are curious. There’s a bit of inflation going on at the moment in terms of new hypercars, let’s see what Bertone can bring to the table!
