The low-volume supercar makes its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
Like most automakers attending the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Italdesign just couldn’t wait to show off what it was bringing. The firm shared press images before the show along with just about every bit of information on it. The only mysteries that remained were how it looked in the metal and what it would be called. Now that Geneva is upon us we have the answers to those questions. The car looks absolutely stunning in the metal, and the official name of it is the Zerouno.
Italdesign is part of the Volkswagen Group, and the man who designed the Zerouno, Filippo Perini, also penned the Huracan, Aventador and Veneno. That’s why the Zerouno looks so similar to a Lamborghini and why it features the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 found in the Huracan and Audi R8. Despite the similarities to the other supercars in the VW Group, the Zerouno is a supercar with its own unique style and design. In the metal it sort of looks like an R8 mated with an Aventador. The roofline especially reminds us of Audi’s supercar. The rear window louvers and wing look to have been ripped straight off the top-tier Lambo. The result is a sexy supercar sure to turn heads, especially given its performance capabilities.
Thanks to its massive engine and all-wheel drive the Zerouno can do 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 205 mph. Those performance figures should be enhanced in the “Corsa” package, a track-only spec designed to cut weight and enhance the supercar’s aerodynamics. Only five Zerounos will be built and each one will cost $1.6 million a pop.
