Bertone GB110 opens a new chapter in the history of the coach

Bertone, one of Italy’s oldest and most respected car builders, wanted a seat at the car-making table. The company that follows arch-rival Pininfarina into the super car segment with a turning limited edition coupe called the GB110 powered by a 1,100 hp engine.

The computer-generated images of Bertone depict a wide, low, wedge-shaped car that is quite pure in design; it doesn’t look like a road-legally manufactured race car to wear a license plate. Giovanni Sapio, project manager of GB110, points out that the overall design is inspired by previous concepts penned by Bertone such as 1970. lancia Stratos Zero and 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo.

Interior images are yet to be revealed. Likewise, the technical details are few and far between. Bertone only notes that the GB110’s chassis is “based on parts from the German manufacturer” and its mysterious engine develops around 1,100 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. It turns the four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. Although we will not fan the flames of speculation, we should point out that the only German supercar with mid-engine, seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are Audi R8.

Regardless of what it is powered by or based on, the GB110 is attractively configured to burn what Bertone calls “plastic fuel”. It has partnered with Select Fuel, which is said to have developed and patented a technology capable of converting polycarbonate materials into renewable fuels. Feeding the engine what sounds like a mixture of liquefied and liquefied plastic garbage will take the coupe from zero to 62 mph in 2.79 seconds, from zero to 124 mph in 6.79 seconds and reached a top speed of more than 236 mph.

Bertone plans to deliver 33 units of the GB110 globally. Pricing information has yet to be announced, but it looks like the company has big plans for the future. It has announced that the new coupe is the first in a series of upcoming limited edition vehicles.
