The fifth and final Italdesign Zerouno will be auctioned off at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s Essen event in Germany. And its current owner is no stranger to the Instagram crowd.
Designed and built to order by one of the finest automotive design houses in the world, the Italdesign Zerouno had made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Only 5 units of the highly exclusive limited-edition vehicle were crafted by the Automobil Speciali division of Italdesign and all of them got lapped up car collectors who have a thing for coach-built supercars. Now, the fifth one has been listed for auction at the RM Sotheby’s Essen event scheduled to be held next month.
Currently owned by an ardent car collector with the Instagram handle @mwvmnw, this Zerouno finished in matte black has not been road registered. In short, this is an all-new car which has got nothing more than testing and delivery miles on the odometer. The wealthy owner who has a sizable collection of exotic cars kept it in a climate-controlled garage since the day he got the work of art delivered to his doorstep. So it is basically as pristine as an art gallery exhibit, though this one is crafted in carbon-fiber.
The Italdesign Zerouno is captivating to look at, thanks to its unique styling which draws inspiration from some of the most beautiful cars designed by the firm over the past 50 years. But make no mistake, it isn’t just a gorgeous vehicle. The Zerouno is quite potent as well.
Packing the firepower of 610 hp, naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 which it shares with the Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan, the Zerouno has a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox that directs power to all four wheels. Its creators claim a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.
The RM Sotheby’s listing estimates this matt black Italdesign Zerouno with the Italian Tricolore stripes to drive off the auction floor after generating anything between $1.07 million and $1.7 million. Makes perfect sense for rich car collectors who want a genuinely exotic and rare supercar in their garage. We pray that the new owner drives it more often than just confining it to a display platform, denying the Zerouno the chance to rev that glorious engine.
