Italdesign Giugiaro used the Geneva Motor Show as a showcase for its latest creation, called GTZero. Its name refers to its non-existent CO² emissions. Designed under the guidance of Filippo Perini, the new designer of Italdesign Giugiaro, this GT prototype is a tribute to Traldesign visions of the past, with a futuristic electric drivetrain tucked up underneath. The bog-featured supercar beak is a machine whose prow recalled the original sports coupés of the 60s and 70s such as DeTomaso Mangusta and Maserati Ghibli. And front end of the car has a certain resemblance with the Lamborghini Asterion. Yet, the body itself is made of curves at the same time modern (diffuser, mirrors with integrated cameras …), unusual and a retro strand to the image of the very singular design of the rear window very singular.

Inside, the only button in the interior is the one for the electronic parking brake. Everything else is controlled by touch via four screens. Besides, Italdesign has worked hard on the interior space which is welcoming, generous, and modular. It can accommodate four passengers in different configurations with reconfigurable rear seats (either 2+2 or 3+1 arrangement) and easily store three luggage in the trunk and two others in the front trunk.

The Italdesign GTZero boasts three electric motors, two on the front axle and one on the rear, advertise total system power at 360 kW, or 489 horsepower. The speed is limited to 250 km / h. In addition, the Italian company says the car has a range of 500 km and can be charged to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes. A future hybrid engine will run a driveshaft through the tub’s central tunnel.

Speaking of the rear, the Italian concept is at the forefront of technology. Comped on 22 and 23 inch rear wheels also provide up to 5 degrees of steering angle.
