Italian design house Torino Design, established in 2006 by Roberto Piatti, has unveiled a new supercar concept powered by a V-12-based hybrid system. The concept is called the Wildtwelve, and it made its debut at the first-ever Parco Valentino – Salone & Gran Premio held recently in Turin, Italy.
The Wildtwelve is said to be more prototype than concept, with Torino Design claiming a limited production run is possible. That’s an impressive claim considering the technology behind the concept.
Power comes from a mid-mounted 3.8-liter V-12 and a pair of electric motors. The V-12 is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and drives the rear wheels, while the electric motors power the front set. Working together the separate power sources are said to put down more than 800 horsepower.
