Bertone is resurrected – the GB110 gets a V10 and 1,140 horsepower

The bad news is that the Bertone GB110, which was first shown in December 2022, will only be built in 33 examples.

Although the Bertone GB110 keeps the V10 engine alive, the 5.2-litre case won't be something to be seen and heard on every street corner. Unfortunately.

The revived Italian design house, which among other things has designed some of Ferrari's best-known models, builds only 33 copies of their own car, the Bertone GB110.

On the other hand, we now know what Bertone was talking about when the concept car was presented two years ago, when the design house had its 110th anniversary. The engine will be a 5.2-liter V10 with twin turbos and an insane 1,124 horsepower.

To that must be added 1,100 newton metres, which must be converted via a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox and four-wheel drive. Ceramic brake discs are – probably for safety's sake – standard.

If you think the 5.2-liter displacement sounds familiar, you're not entirely wrong. Audi used such a one in the now-retired R8. However, Bertone does not say exactly where the engine comes from. So other than that it is 'of German origin'.

The starting point for Bertone has probably also been the sibling pair Audi R8/Lamborghini Huracan. If you look closely, the lines are there at least.

But neither car could do what Bertone says the GB110 can do. Namely, reach a top speed of 350 km/h and go from 0 to 300 km/h in 12.9 seconds. All this in a car that weighs 'just' 1,422 kilos.

The only thing we don't get to see about the GB110 yet is the interior. But it is now not as unusual as it might sound. HWA, which will revive the legendary Mercedes-Benz 190E Evo II next year, will not show the interior either. Not yet. Read more about it here .
