Bertone, Zagato and Morgan preparing new concepts for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

With three concept car world premiers scheduled from custom coach-makers Stile Bertone and Zagato, and a retro sports-car for Morgan, this year's Italian Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is certainly going to be a blast.

The highly anticipated concept from Bertone, a V8 two-seater created with lightweight materials, is intended to be development of the B.A.T. 11 from last year.

The new Zagato concept is still under a tight lid until its introduction, but there are talks saying that the car could be the final production model of the Perana Z-One which was revealed recently.

For the Morgan concept car, it is thought to be a lightweight two-seater built using the platform of the Aeromax, and may see the light of production if it receives enough positive reviews.

Other remarkable cars will also be hosted at the event, including the previous "GINA Light" design study by BMW, which has up to this time been kept exclusively at the museum of BMW in Munich.

Also appearing at the event will be the 592hp (442kW) hybrid-engine Infiniti Essence, together with a drivable variant of the latest Aston Martin One-77 supercar.

Also appearing together with the Rinspeed iChange will be the Fisker Karma S. The event, which will start on April 24, will only permit drivable concepts built in the last three year to be showcased, together with classic vehicles.

The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is an entirely a beauty contest, with all the show-goers given the chance to take part in electing the most beautiful car instead of a group of design professionals.
