Italdesign Zerouno Targa Looks Stunning In Latest Images

Italdesign has released two new pictures of its upcoming Zerouno Targa.

Set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the model is essentially an open air version of the Zerouno coupe which was unveiled at last year’s show. Of course, the biggest difference is the targa eschews a fix and adopts a unique rear end which features two buttresses and a prominent compartment for the car’s naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine.

Speaking of the engine, it is expected to produce 610 PS (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. It will likely be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system. There’s no word on how fast the model will be but the coupe could accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds before hitting a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

Part of the car’s impressive performance is due to its lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum chassis which is covered by carbon fiber bodywork. The model should also come equipped with 20-inch aluminum wheels and a carbon-ceramic braking system.

Italdesign hasn’t said much about the car but reports have suggested the model will cost €1.9 ($2.3) million which would make it around €407,050 ($500,000) more expensive than the coupe. Regardless of the final price tag, the Zerouno Targa will be an exclusive beast as the company could limit production to five units like the coupe.

    That front end is unforgivable and unlovable

    • REAR END AND PROFILE TOO.

      • wait a minute

        IMO just too may design themes going on.

  • Zandit75

    Are we just forgetting now that this is just a re-bodied Huracan?

    • LWOAP

      Wouldn’t be the first time a Lamborghini was re-bodied and became much more expensive.

      • Zandit75

        Yeah, but to take a beautiful car, and make it into this pile of crap is just wrong. Especially for the coin they are asking!

        • LWOAP

          Yeah, I see your point but people pay for this stuff so it happens.

    • You mean Audi R8? Pretty sure that was the car.

      • Zandit75

        They’re both built on the same platform, but I remember seeing mentions of both Audi and Lamborghini in different stories on the original coupe.

        • If you look at the Coupe interior, it’s showing Audi steering wheel, so my money is in R8.

  • $2.3 MILLION? CAR PRICES HAVE GOTTEN RIDICULOUS.
    AND IT’S UGLY TO BOOT.

    • That’s what “exclusivity” commands these days.

  • Six Thousand Times

    After the old man stepped down, Italdesign has gone to seed.

    • Given his current employment, pretty sure Giuigiaro knows where his design house is heading and decide not to be part of this.

  • SteersUright

    Design is simply too busy to be beautiful, to my eyes.

  • john1168

    WAAAYYY too expensive… But I do think it looks fantastic! I’m a big Huracan fan but I do like this.

  • ira j.

    the extra fold in the door’s sheet metal just below the mirror has got to go. once that and those “vents” at the tops of the fenders have gone, it would not look as “busy”

  • I’ve seen the coupe one in person and I had to say looking it in real life still don’t justify it.

    The design simply don’t have theme or purpose. That’s just worse to me.
