Italdesign Zerouno Duerta is Coming to Town at 205MPH…

When it comes to supercars, we typically look at the Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Huracan, McLaren 720S and the Ferrari 488 as sitting comfortably at the top. But, the thing with those, is that they aren’t exactly exclusive. If you’ve got enough money spare in your bank account, you can just hop online an order one. On the other hand, there’s certain supercars which have been manufactured solely to create jealousy.
The new Italdesign Zerouno Duerta is one of those. Considering there were only five built, you’ll probably find you can’t have one, even if you have the budget and desire, hence why we said it evokes jealousy. To make you even more jealous – the Zerouno Duerta is a seriously phenomenal vehicle, with the aesthetics, performance and drivability boxes all ticked.
Under the hood, you’ll find a Lamborghini influence in the shape of the 5.2-liter V10 carbon fiber engine, which produces a mean 610 BHP and 413 lb-ft of torque. If you open up the throttle, you’ll quickly realise that you can hit 60 MPH in just 3.2 seconds. Then, if you keep your foot down on the acceleration, you have that ability to notch up 205 MPH.
It processes all of that power through its 7-speed dual clutch transmission, meaning you can also drive it manually if you wish, using the paddle shifters. Oh, and the all-wheel drive helps too. To further enhance performance, the entire bodywork has been completed in carbon fiber to reduce weight, aerodynamics has been prioritized and cooling features have been added to the wheels to remove heat from the brake discs.
Previously, Italdesign released the Zerouno, which is a standard coupe, but the Zerouno Duerta is its convertible cousin; the roof is a targa style one which can easily be removed. Just imagine whizzing down the road in a beautiful supercar that is releasing a symphony of pops and bangs from the exhaust, all while the roof is down and wind is smacking you in the face.
With such a large element of exclusivity and it being a convertible, how much is it going to cost? According to reports, around the $2.4 million mark, which is significantly more than the $1.7 million base price for the Zerouno coupe!
