Geneva 2012: Bertone Nuccio Concept [Live Photos]
text size: A- A+
This car is called the Nuccio concept and it turned heads by the thousands in Geneva. With really long overhangs, a roof that looks like an armadillo’s back and stop lights like jet afterburners, it doesn’t really belong in the real world. But that won’t stop 12-year old from drooling over it in magazines.
Named after founder Giovanni Bertone's son, the Nuccio was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the design company based in Turin, Italy. It has an elongated shape and an almost flat windscreen.
It looks like some sort of 80s concept, without the modern materials and revolutionary paint finishes you see nowadays. In some places, that orange backbone looks a bit rough as well. The people who like this car definitely still listen to Guns & Roses or Poison.
Bertone did not detail the underpinnings of the car at all, but it’s probably based on an old Ferrari, most likely the 430 by the looks of things.
