Tale as old as time
While most of Italdesign’s customs of the past could be described as pretty, such as the Bugatti ID 90 and the Volkswagen W12 Coupe Concept, pretty was definitely thrown out of the simultaneous engineering design plans when they began the creation of the ZeroUno — why be pretty when you can be an absolute beast? Although performance numbers are similar to that of the comparable Lamborghini Huracán, with a 205mph top speed and a 0–60 time of 3.2 seconds, it is the gill-like vents, angular nose, and protruding bumpers that set the ZeroUno apart. With only five being produced, and each being offered with an ultimate customisation package — from custom paint colours to full carbon designs to a Corsa package to increase aerodynamics on the track — as well as the opportunity to purchase the collaborative, limited-edition Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch by Roger Dubuis, eyes will widen in both alarm and intrigue when this creature snarls its way through any provincial town.
