The set of images follow the first sketches released a couple of weeks ago, and showcase a dynamic, low sportscar with a number of original design elements.
The Nuccio is characterized by a distinctive, low silhouette, with a single, arched line that defines the upper contour of the short front hood, the long windshield and the roof, extending to the rear end.
This line reminds of the 1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero, and is contrasted by the shoulder line, which has a Z-shape that recalls the Lamborghini Diablo and the Cizeta V16, both designed by Marcello Gandini, who worked at Bertone until 1980.
Another distinctive element is the roof, which visually contrasts with the dark body for its bright orange color, and reminds of tensile structures in modern architecture, a similarity enhanced by the meshed grid pattern of the surface.
The front and rear end combine essential lighting units, consisting of horizontal bars spanning the entire width, with the rhomboidal and triangular shapes of the front air intakes and the tail exhausts.
The same theme can be found in the side view, on the mirror and on the sculpted rear fender.
The wheels, while keeping up with the angular lines theme, are rather conventional compared to originality of the design.
The Nuccio Concept will make its official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and will be displayed on several occasions during 2012 for the celebrations of the design studio’s Centenary.
