Brivido hybrid hypercar from Giugiaro debuts at Geneva

Italian automotive stylist Giugiaro has revealed its newest creation at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show: the Brivido concept.

The futuristic grand tourer is billed as a supercar that’s kind to the environment. It features a 3.0 litre V6 that develops 265kW and 460Nm - which doesn’t sound like much - however the additional hybrid system makes an extra 300kW and 460Nm. This amounts to a 0-100km/h time of 5.8 seconds and top speed of 275km/h.

The Brivido’s gull wing doors and roomy interior also make it a true four-seat GT car, and its 1326 litre cargo capacity with the seats folded down is fairly impressive as well.

Inside the cabin you’ll also find plenty of ultramodern technologies like titanium fibre trim materials, twin LCD instrument screens, an iPad dock, and a touch screen climate control system which descends from the roof.
