There is also a reference to the 1968 Carabo concept, an extremely low and boxy car designed by the pencil of Marcello Gandini. Looking closer, the profile of the new Bertone supercar picks up the feature of the large rear air intakes that separate the flanks from the tail.

“When imagination goes beyond all limits, definitions too. That’s why the unique beauty of the 1968 Bertone Carabo had to enter the category of dream cars. What will Bertone’s next dream be?”
