Named after its never-to-be-forgotten master of Italian styling, Nuccio Bertone, the concept car is described as an "extreme" sports car that takes the next evolutionary step on the iconic wedge shaped design from the 1970s.

Italian design firm Bertone has revealed their Centenary celebration concept called the Nuccio at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

Named after its never-to-be-forgotten master of Italian styling, Nuccio Bertone, the concept car is described as an "extreme" sports car that takes the next evolutionary step on the iconic wedge shaped mid-rear engined, rear-wheel drive, berlinetta design from the 1970s.

Signaling the company's styling language of the future, the Nuccio concept gushes with details such as the webbed lattice design in the front fascia and sides. The front end also incorporates an LED light bar in lieu of traditional right and left headlamp units.

The front windscreen is a solid concave piece of glass that extends way past the dash panel well into the front body while blending into the roof waves eliminating any rear glass. However, looking at the illustrations we can see an LCD monitor positioned behind the headrest which projects a rear view from a camera.

At the rear there are brushed aluminum tail pipes in a trapezoidal shape which flank a huge exposed diffuser which travels half way up the rear body.

We're a bit disappointed as the company did not release any additional information, particularly a design analysis for the Nuccio, but perhaps the pictures say it all.

The Nuccio is designed by Bertone Design Director, Michael Robinson.
