Next to the standard Brivido , Italdesign-Giugiaro has also unveiled a racing version for the concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. This concept was developed in cooperation with Martini Racing and was built as a competitor for the usual GT racing series.
The car is distinguished by the typical GT racing features: miniskirts, bumpers and bonnet redesigned so to enhance aerodynamics and two big spoilers granting stability. The front has also received a sharper nose full of splitters and of course that there has been installed another set of rims. And if you also add that cool white paint combined with blue-red racing stripes you obtain the perfect racing car. Too bad it won’t actually be raced, but for an exercise it looks very good.
Giugiaro said nothing about the powertrain of this racing car, but most likely it will be identical to the standard Brivido: a 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers a total of 360 HP and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
UPDATE 12/03/12: The Italdesign Brivido Martini Racing was on-hand at the 2012 Essen Show showcasing its iconic color scheme. To coincide with the car gracing Essen, a batch of photos of the supercar has been added to the gallery! Check it out!
