Italdesign Zerouno Drops its Top for New Roadster Variant

Italdesign Giugiaro is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a new supercar at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

At the same show last year, the Italian design house unveiled the first car to be sold under its name, the Zerouno. The company is following it with a convertible variant at this year’s show, before heading to limited production. Powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine found in the Audi R8 V10 Plus, the Zerouno Coupe and Zerouno Roadster ride on the same chassis as the Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8, which makes sense since Italdesign is owned by Audi.

The original Zerouno Coupe was limited to just five units, and Italdesign hasn’t announced how many units it will produce for the convertible version. Official pricing has also not been revealed, but reports say the base price is likely to be around $1.8 million, and when nicely equipped, pass the two-million mark.

Interestingly, the original founders of Italdesign are no longer with the company. Giorgetto Giugiaro and Aldo Mantovani founded Italdesign on February 13, 1968 in Turin, Italy. But both left the company in 2015 to establish GFG Style, which also has a project at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
