Italdesign is no stranger to show-stopping special editions, but the Zerouno must be among its prettiest designs. Having launched in Geneva, the first example has arrived with a lucky owner in Italy. And soak up the very public handover, because you shouldn't expect to see the Zerouno on public roads.

Just five will be built in total, each powered by the naturally aspirated V10 found in the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan. Going from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 3.2 seconds, with a claimed top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). Unfortunately, priceless cars like this often don't get close to that unless they're on the back of a transporter.

The engine is connected to a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox with power delivered to the road via an intelligent all-wheel drive system. All this is housed in a modular carbon-aluminum chassis that is covered with carbon fiber body panels to stand out among the crowd of supercars. Each customer has been given the chance to customize the car with the factory, meaning no two examples should ever be the same.

Steve Lismont is the lucky owner of the vehicles bearing the chassis number #0001, and had the chance to test his new toy on a 100-km (62-mi) loop around Italdesign HQ. The other four examples have also been sold, although they aren't ready for handover just yet.

I'm sure luck had nothing to with this, more like $$$$$

The Zerouno must be among its prettiest designs, how much wine did you have to drink (it's pretty bloody ugly) that's what it is.
