The Salone Dell'Automobile di Torino kicked the bucket in 2002 when the Bologna Motor Show took over the role of Italy's international motor show. This year though, the Turin Motor Show is back, albeit as an open-air event near the Parco del Valentino. The Torino Design ATS Wildtwelve at hand is the star of the show, and we can't argue with its design.
You know how small Italian automakers are: "our car has a gazillion horsepower and the top speed of an F-16." Truth be told, the Torino Design ATS Wildtwelve never did a top speed run to back up the claimed 390 km/h (242 mph), but then you look at it. It's such a gorgeous creation, oozing Italian flamboyance.

According to Torino Design, ATS stands for Automobili Turismo and Sport and signifies the company born in the 1960s as a result of a massive departure of Ferrari engineers. Regarding the Wildtwelve in its name, this four-wheeled contraption is animated by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V12 motor coupled to a 9-speed sequential transmission.

Total output is 860 horsepower and 918 Nm (677 lb-ft), courtesy of the V12 tower-of-power and a plug-in hybrid powertrain that employs two electric motors animating the front wheels. The company says that the chief engineer of the hybrid hypercar is a former Bugatti employee, but what's more interesting than that is curb weight. Thanks to lots of carbon fiber, the Torino Design ATS Wildtwelve tips the scales at just 1,450 kilograms (3,196 pounds).

30 examples of the 4.4-meter long, 2-meter wide and 1.2-meter tall hybrid hypercar will ever be built at the old Bugatti factory in Campogalliano. The first has been acquired by designer Santo Versace. We sure hope that Mr. Versace likes his cars fast because the ATS Wildtwelve hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds.
