Just the Facts:
  • The wedge-shaped Nuccio concept is named for Nuccio Bertone, son of the founder, who led the Turin design house until his death in 1997.
  • The Nuccio concept, created by design chief Mike Robinson, marks the company's centennial.
  • The Nuccio appears to draw styling inspiration from Bertone's classic 1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero concept.

GENEVA — The word "extreme" is getting tossed around a lot these days - but it may actually be justified in the case of Bertone's latest concept, the Nuccio, which makes its public debut at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Auto Show.

The wedge-shape, midengine supercar was created by design chief Mike Robinson and appears to draw styling inspiration from Bertone's classic 1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero concept.

The concept marks the company's centennial and is named for Nuccio Bertone, son of the founder, who led the Turin design house until his death in 1997.

In a statement, Stile Bertone said the Nuccio "displays a styling language of strong emotional impact that projects the brand's identity into the future."

After its Geneva debut, the Nuccio will make appearances at several other global events this year, including the 2012 Beijing Auto Show in April and the Concorso Italiano at the Monterey Peninsula in California this August.
