A company has unveiled a 1,100 hp car that “consumes” plastic waste

Car design firm Bertone has unveiled the GB110, a racing car that uses fuel made from plastic waste.

The car will be produced in a limited edition of just 33 units, and the first units will be delivered next spring.

The car’s engine will have 1,000 hp and a maximum torque of 1,100 Nm. We also know that the GB110 will use components sourced from “a German brand”.

According to the manufacturer, the hypercar will go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.79 seconds and can reach a top speed of 380 km/h. We don’t yet know how much the car will cost.

The car’s name includes the initials of Giuseppe Bertone, the company’s former chief designer who turned 110 this year.

The car will use a fuel called Select Fuel, made by a startup from plastic waste. Turning this highly polluting material into an energy source is important, and Bertone’s choice is to be welcomed.
