Imagine paying $3 million to hear that sound every day.
2017 was a very strong year for new supercars, so we’ll forgive you if the reveal of the Italdesign Zerouno slipped under your radar. It’s the first supercar to be built by the legendary Italian design house’s new sub-brand Italdesign Automobili Speciali, a division which specializes in limited-run production specials. As such, only five examples of the Zerouno are being built, each reportedly costing roughly $3 million. The first Zerouno to roll off the assembly line was delivered to its owner late last year in Belgium.
Nearly a year after the Zerouno debuted at Geneva 2017 we finally get to see it put through its paces courtesy of YouTube channel Pog which attended the delivery of the car in Belgium. Zerouno #0001 is finished in the same livery featuring a tricolor stripe and configuration as the white model that was shown at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
It looks like a cross between an Audi R8 and a Lamborghini Aventador and the result is unlike any other supercar on the market. Its design inspiration is no coincidence either as the car’s designer, Filippo Perini, also penned the Huracan, Aventador and Veneno. As a result, the striking styling is sure to attract attention. Then there’s the blistering performance. As the driver roars through scenic Belgian roads, we get to hear the sweet sound of the Zerouno’s 5.2-liter V10 engine taken from an Audi R8 which produces 610 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, and it sounds simply sublime. You can even change the sound on the fly at the press of a button.
This engine allows the Zerouno to sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph. We’d say this is $3 million well spent just to hear that sound every day.
