Italian car manufacturers are known the world over for their ultra performance including prestigious brands such as Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, and Bugati. We may need to add Corbellati to that esteemed list. If you haven’t heard of Corbellati in regards to top-of-the-line automobiles don’t fret because they never made cars until recently. Actually, they made jewelry and art for over 70 years. But the Italian company is making the jump from jewelry to cars. And they are jumping head-first with the Corbellati Missile, a vehicle that has the claims of being the world’s fastest car.
The Corbellati Missile has some beautiful curves and has a retro look that is reminiscent of the race cars from the 1960s. There’s nothing retro about the engine. The hypercar boasts a 9.0 liter V-8 twin-turbocharged engine that allegedly produces an insane 1,800 horsepower, 2350Nm of torque, and a top speed of more than 310 mph. If the Missile can actually hit that neck-snapping speed, it would indeed be the world’s fastest car beating out the Hennessey Venom F5, which hit 301 mph. The hypercar also features a self-leveling double quadrilateral air suspension and carbon-ceramic discs inside monoblock six-piston calipers to brake when you’re going 300 mph.
“Our goal is to create a car with unique performance and unique designs, just like jewelry. The fastest gem in the world.” the company said. The prototype hypercar will make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show on March 8.
