Bertone Nuccio Concept going to Beijing Auto Show image

The Italian design house Stile Bertone has recently announced that the Bertone Nuccio Concept will be presented at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show too, which will open its gates in April.

After being officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Bertone Nuccio Concept will go to Asia too, where it will debut at the Beijing Motor Show in April, but even if the sports car is highlighted once again, extra details on it still haven’t emerged. Bertone says that the Nuccio Concept has been made as a tribute to the company’s 100th anniversary since it was founded back in 1912 by Giovanni Bertone, and Nuccio, his son, took over the family business after World War II, separating it into two new divisions, Stile Bertone, for styling, and Carrozzeria, for manufacturing.

The Bertone Nuccio Concept is an extreme sports car, an evolution of the mid-rear engined, rear-wheel drive berlinetta design from the 1970s, which is coming with a completely new look, as the company says. Michael Robinson, the Stile Bertone design director, has made the Bertone Nuccio Concept as part of paying his tribute to the company. This won’t be the last time when we will hear about the Bertone Nuccio Concept and the Italian sports car will be shown in other exhibitions around the world, like the Laguna Seca in the United States in August and the Florence event, in its home country, in September.
