The Bertone GB110 hypercar has been shown in public for the first time

Bertone’s resurgence is now officially underway, with its GB110 hypercar unveiled in the metal in Monaco last week, no doubt to the eyes of many prospective buyers (and indeed those have already placed reservations). 

Design was led by Andrea Mocellin, who recently formalised the opening of his new studio in Munich, shown on the right above with design manager Giovanni Sapio.

Mocellin says that iconic models from Bertone’s back catalogue served as inspiration, from the Lancia Stratos Zero, the 1992 Blitz and the 2009 Mantide concept. The C-shaped aerial view is also a nod to the Bat concept car series of the 1950s. 

In attendance were various dignitaries (shown in order in the gallery above) including businessmen and Bertone-backers Jean-Franck and Mauro Ricci; Monaco state Minister Pierre Dartout; Albert II, Prince of Monaco; and Barbara Bertone, daughter of Nuccio Bertone. 

Designer Mocellin told Car Design News that the unveiling at Top Marques Monaco was “amazing and truly unique.”
