The Bertone Nuccio may look like a spacecraft, but that’s because the design was created “by the legendary styling house’s current design boss, Michael Robinson, who seems to have been inspired by…the 1970’s; namely some of the company’s greatest hits, including the Lamborghini Miura and Countach, Lancia Stratos, and Fiat X1/9.” Click here for more pictures.
