LEGENDARY ITALIAN DESIGN FIRM BERTONE RETURNS WITH A TRASH-FUELLED HYPERCAR, THE BERTONE GB110
Bertone has been in the automotive game for 110 years now, and they famed design house and coachbuilder returns to the spotlight with an all-new hypercar to celebrate the company’s long history, the GB110. While there are now quite a few niche automakers out there developing new hypercars to quench the fast car thirst of millionaires who can’t spend their cash fast enough, none of them have the same claim to fame as the GB110. Only a few hypercars are powered purely by fossil fuel these days, the majority being hybrid or fully-electric instead, but this latest creation from the Italian design firm claims to be powered with plastic waste. So far there’s no word on the recipe for this fuel or how it exactly works yet, so we’re sure the few people who do know are living in hiding because gasoline producers still exist and an alternative fuel source that can be made from throwaway plastic could be hazardous to their health levels. The fuel must also be rather potent and allow for some decent tuning because they claim the GB110 will produce 820 kW and 1 100 Nm of torque. That’s not playing around.
Jean-Franck Ricci, CEO of Bertone says: “We believe that de-pollution will require different solutions with combinations of technologies. Plastic waste needs to be treated as a valuable resource. Through our partnership with Select Fuel we take what was once waste and convert it back into its original form.” Bertone is partnering with the company Select Fuel which has developed a patented technology to convert polycarbonate materials into renewable fuel. “The GB110 is an immensely powerful car. What we are looking for is a strong acceleration and low weight for a maximum of pleasure. But at the same time it’s designed for everyday use and built with ergonomics and comfort in mind. We are building this car for customers that appreciate the history and legacy of Bertone. And for connoisseurs who love sports cars with exceptional performance. It’s not only about raw power and performance.It’s about celebrating the long Italian tradition of timeless elegant cars,” adds Jean-Franck Ricci, CEO of Bertone.
