New Bertone GB110 hypercar revealed with 1100bhp

The GB110 takes inspiration from Bertone’s iconic designs

Italian design house Bertone celebrates its 110th birthday in 2022 and to celebrate, the company has revealed a new hypercar called GB110. 

The firm says the new car will be the first in a series of limited-edition models, with the GB110 itself restricted to just 33 examples. Jean-Franck Ricci, CEO of Bertone, says that the first deliveries of the GB110 can be expected in spring 2024.

Bertone claims the GB110’s design takes inspiration from the Lancia Stratos Zero concept, with its huge ‘Apex Claw’ side air vent, as well as the Alfa Romeo Bat Series and the wedge-like Alfa Romeo Carabo.

Few technical details have been released but we do know the GB110 pumps out 1,110bhp and 1,100Nm of torque. Bertone says the mystery powertrain can run entirely on fuel made from recycled plastic. 

Those hefty power numbers mean the GB110 can accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and reach 186mph in 14 seconds. By comparison, the upcoming Mercedes-AMG One will sprint to 186mph in 15.6 seconds and the Bugatti Chiron 13.1 seconds. Bertone claims the GB110 will go on to a top speed of 236mph. 

Mated to the powerplant is a seven-speed gearbox, although Bertone hasn’t revealed if this is a manual or automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels - which measure 21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the rear. 

Bertone claims “strong acceleration and low weight” are a priority for the GB110, so while there’s little information on the chassis so far, we’d expect extensive use of carbon fibre. We do know the car rides on independent double-wishbone suspension, front and rear, plus it features four-way adjustable dampers. 

Another high priority is ergonomics and comfort; indeed, Bertone claims the GB110 is designed to be used every day. Still, you’re unlikely to see one on your local high street, given the low production numbers and a price tag that’s likely to be comfortably into seven figures.
