It’s called the Corbellati, and most of us probably can’t afford one

The Geneva Motor Show is the biggest auto show in the calendar. It hosts just about every automaker in the world. That’s on top of all the niche brands and startups that use the show to introduce themselves to the business. Take Corbellati, for example. The company that’s known for doing its business in the world of art and jewelry is venturing into the hypercar world with the introduction of the Missile, a 1,000-plus horsepower hypercar that’s already claiming a 310-mph top speed. As far as ambitious first impressions go, the Corbellati Missile isn’t bashful about its place in the hypercar scene.

Details are still scarce on the Corbellati Missile, but from what we already know, the new hypercar isn’t messing around. Corbellati says that it’s powered by a massive 9.0-liter, Biturbo, V-8 engine. If the Missile hits production and becomes an actual thing, it would have the largest capacity engine of any road car in the world, larger, in fact, than the 8.4-liter V-10 unit that the outgoing Viper has under its own belly. That massive engine isn’t for show-and-tell, either. It has 1,800 horsepower at its disposal, all of which are sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a six-speed transmission. In case that power figure hasn’t sunk in yet, consider this: Corbellati is aiming to develop the Missile with an eye towards reaching a top speed of 310 mph.

Aesthetically, the Missile isn’t what I’d call a modern stunner. There are hints of retro styling in the body, most prominently seen in the sweeping curves it has. There’s a bit of Italian flavor to its design, harkening back to Ferrari’s of yesteryear. The retro design is purely cosmetic, though. The body and chassis, for example, are made entirely out of carbon fiber. It also measures 183.8 inches long, putting it in the same dimensional space as the Pagani Huayra (181.2 inches long) and the Ferrari LaFerrari (186 inches).

The Missile is all set for a Geneva Motor Show debut where it has the potential to be a show-stopping scene-stealer.

There’s no word yet on how much the Missile is going to weigh or what kind of interior it has. What we can tell is that Corbellati wants to make an impression with its initial hypercar offering. From the looks of things, it’s already done that even before we know what the final product is going to look like. Regardless, the Missile is all set for a Geneva Motor Show debut where it has the potential to be a show-stopping scene-stealer.
