Italdesign GTZero concept from Italy is a modern interpretation of classic GT cars.

The electric Italdesign GTZero supercar concept is built on a modular monocoque carbon frame. The modular layout has the potential for varying configuration and powertrain options. A solid monocoque carbon frame with aluminium sub-frames makes it possible to change overall dimensions without altering carbon structure.

Italdesign GTZero concept is powered by three electric motors (two on the front axle, one on rear), which deliver a total output of 483 bhp. These three motors can achieve 80% charge in just 30 minutes and offer a driving range of 311 miles on one full charge cycle. Batteries are integrated into the frame and central tunnel. GTZero supercar top speed is limited to 155 mph (250 kmph).

The new electric supercar rides on 22-inch front wheels, and 23-inch rear wheels. Former Lamborghini design boss Filippo Perini has overseen the 4WD concept as Italdesign design head.

The interiors feature all black treatment with yellow accents on the dashboard and yellow thread stitching on leather upholstery. The two-door concept with 2+2 seating layout gets sports seats with integrated headrests.
