Italdesign Zerouno Duerta roadster roars into Geneva motor show

Drop-top version of the Italdesign Zerouno coupe should appeal to those who think a Ferrari 488 Spider is just a little too common

Italian design house turned coachbuilder Italdesign Automobili Speciali has unveiled a Duerta roadster version of the Zerouno at the Geneva motor show. The Zerouno is a low volume production supercar with extreme styling and a set of underpinnings borrowed from Lamborghini. Like its closed-roof sibling, the Zerouno Duerta is aimed at collectors rather than trackday enthusiasts and thus will have a price tag to reflect that.

Like the coupe, the Zerouno Duerta uses a 5.2-litre V10 engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox borrowed from the Lamborghini Huracán and Audi R8. Power will be sent to all four wheels and the car should hit 62mph from a standstill in around 3 seconds.

The aluminium and carbonfibre chassis is also from the Huracán, although the bodywork hung off it is new, with an aggressive aesthetic and loaded with aerodynamic aids including a stacked rear wing. Primarily a design exercise, the shape does hamper top speed compared with the more slippery Lamborghini, although this is unlikely to matter for most owners.

Upon the launch of the coupe, Italdesign announced that it would start producing more ‘coach-built’ vehicles for ultra-wealthy clientele. As a subsidiary of the vast Volkswagen Group, Italdesign has all the tools to continue building these sorts of cars for collectors too, although we’re unlikely to ever see, let alone drive one in the wild.
