Italdesign GTZero: Gran Turismo del Futuro


This fresh new concept from Italdesign ticks a lot of retro boxes: it’s a shooting brake, it’s a continent-crushing gran turismo in the traditional sense, and its wacky rear window is clearly inspired by Coco Chinetti’s Ferrari Daytona estate. And yet the GTZero couldn’t be more modern if it tried to stream Netflix through its smartwatch, and it’s all thanks to the design team’s over-arching ambition for the project: a car with a futuristic design that doesn’t lose its grip on reality.

But just because you wish to remain realistic doesn’t mean you can’t be zanily creative. The car’s interior, for example, is modular to offer 2+2 or 3+1 seating, depending on how much you like your passengers. The platform itself is also modular, allowing either full-electric or hybrid powertrains. The body has active aero, like a Pagani Huayra, and just look at the thing – it’s like the sort of supercar a ten year old would draw.

The version as displayed at this year’s Geneva Motor Show showcased an all-electric triple-motor layout (two fore, one aft), putting out a combined peak of 360kW (483bhp); it has 4WD and 4WS, can crack 155mph, and you can whack in an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. If you’re asking more from your GT EV, your expectations are probably too high.
