The Design of Speed

Italdesign Zerouno

Introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show was this stunning new vehicle from Italdesign's Automobili Speciali. It's called the Zerouno, and the company plans to produce only 5 units, all "intended for collectors and visionary enthusiasts" according to the company's website. This is about as unattainable as it gets.

Featuring a full carbon fiber body, and a normally aspirated, 5.2 liter V10 that should push the car to a claimed 205 mph, the promised performance certainly qualifies the Zerouno as a supercar. As Italdesign is part of the Volkswagen Audi Group, this V10 is most likely the same engine that powers the Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan.

Considering the corporate lineage, it should be no surprise that this car appears to somewhat mirror the form and general lines of the Huracan, but what's most striking to me is the large number of cuts and slashes made to enhance aerodynamic effect and engine/braking cooling. Even the exhaust ports are designed with aerodynamic efficiency in mind. The design is aggressive and busy and the car almost appears to be a serrated knife, ready to cut through the wind.
