Bertone is celebrating their centenary with an “extreme” sports car concept.
The Nuccio Concept seen here has just made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Bertone's creation is a celebration of their centenary and, apparently, "puts an evolutionary imprint on the concept that is built into Bertone's dna: the mid-rear engined berlinetta." Or resembles an aardvark with orange highlights, or something like that. The Bertone Nuccio features a muscular 'one-box' design, paying homage to their 'historic tradition' and styling language.
The Turin-based company has given their Nuccio Concept a Ferrari-sourced 4.3-liter V8 engine rated at 480hp with underpinnings possibly from the Prancing Horse brand's F430. The Nuccio Concept is currently on display now at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. As part of Bertone's centenary celebration, the Italians will bring their latest concept to several other world-wide auto shows throughout the year.
