Italdesign has lost its master, Giorgetto Giugiaro, but it seems to remain in excellent shape. This is what the Italdesign GTZero tries to state. Although its name implies it is a GT, it is, in fact, an electric shooting brake. A very respectful one.
The GTZero is 4.92 m long, 1.97 m wide, 1.27 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.88 m. It weighs 1,980 kg, quite a heavy vehicle, but this is due to its large batteries. Besides driving the GTZero to a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically governed), they offer a range of 500 km.
It is powered by 3 electric engines, 1 for the front axle, delivering 140 kW, and the other 2 for the rear axle, each of them producing 110 kW. That amounts to 360 kW. The battery pack can have 80% of its charge back in 30 minutes when the car is plugged to its supercharger.
Italdesign says the GTZero is a 2+2 vehicle, but that it can be converted into a 3+1 vehicle, something that is not fully explained by the press material nor by the video above. Only 2 doors grant access to the interior of the GTZero. It uses Pirelli P Zero Nero tires, with 295/25 R22 on the front wheels and 315/25 R23 in the back.
It is a pity that it is just a design exercise. If Volkswagen ever decides to produce the GTZero, since it controls Italdesign, it would be a much more conventional car, for sure.
