2017 Italdesign Automobili Speciali

The Geneva Motor show is a few weeks away and the buzz is already kicking into high gear. Just this week Italdesign revealed some renderings of their much anticipated 2017 Automobili Speciali.

The only thing that seems to rival this supercar’s looks is its power plant. A gargantuan 5.2 liter V10 engine sits under the hood of this beast – the same that powers the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan – and it boasts the capability of sending the car rocketing from 0 to 62mph in just 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 205 miles per hour. These stats are in large part thanks to how lightweight this vehicle is. The modular chassis is made from a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum, while the bodywork is built entirely out of the featherweight plastic. Only 5 of these will be made, but according to Italdesign CEO Joerg Astalosch, the company plans to put out a new car every 18 to 24 months from here on out. Prices for this particular car are expected to start at $1.6 million. [Purchase]
