Camal Ramusa Concept pays tribute to Bertone

Ramusa is a project of a Hypersuv vehicle created by Turin-based design studio Camal and dedicated to Stile Bertone.



The Ramusa (meaning “lizard” in Piedmontese dialect) aims at combining supercar-like performances with off-road capabilities. It is 4320 mm long, 2020 mm wide and 1300 mm high, and has a ground clearance of 250 mm.

The exterior look is characterized by flowing, sculptural lines that wrap an unusually proportioned package, defined by the relatively short wheelbase and the contrast between the reduced total height and the high ground clearance.

“The initial concept was born form the idea to intersect a disc-shaped volume with more technical elements rooted to the ground. Each vent, outlet or intake has been integrated into an aesthetic form, combining functionality with beauty; in a word, design.”

“The volumes of the body side and wings/fenders have a dynamic yet organic treatment, and are intersected by strong edges […].”

Among the distinctive features are the exposed carbon fiber elements, which include the subtly squared off wheel arches, the side sills, roof structure and front and rear lips.

The front end of the two-seater, mid-engined concept, is characterized by the absence of the traditional radiator grille which lends it an original identity.

The front and rear lighting clusters front emerge from crevices in the body so as to not compromise the cleanliness of the volumes yet frame the four corners of the car.

The Ramusa is virtually based on the chassis and drivetrain of the Bugatti EB110 and its .e 3.5 liter, 60-valve V12 quad turbo, which is coupled with a 6-speed gearbox.

The powertrain also integrates a hybrid system which powers the front wheels through a central electric motor activated during quick acceleration and limited traction.
