Hypercar ?concepts? with outrageous performance figures come and go, with most never reaching production. A few examples include the Trion Nemesis, Arash AF10 and the 3?728 kW Devel Sixteen. The latest? Something called the Corbellati Missile, an Italian conception that its makers promise will be "the fastest in the world".

Designed by a family business that has a history in jewellery and art, the Corbellati Missile will apparently employ a twin-turbo 9,0-litre V8 worth a whopping 1?324 kW and 2?350 N.m ... all sent to the rear wheels via something the company describes only as "a six-speed transmission" (we're guessing it's an automatic).

Corbellati hasn't, however, provided a claimed 0-100 km/h time. However, the company does say it is targeting a top speed in excess of 500 km/h, something it concedes is "undoubtedly very high". Still, it says it is confident in achieving its goal as there have been "months of calculations on the aerodynamics to get very little drag force and the necessary downforce" to reach the lofty figure. An odd claim, considering Bugatti spent many, many years (and plenty of cash) developing the Veyron...

Corbellati says the Missile will employ 235/35 R20 front and 345/30 R20 rear tyres, double wishbone front and rear suspension (with inboard "triple adjustable dampers") and a set of 394 mm carbon-ceramic brakes with monoblock six-piston calipers.

The carbon-fibre hypercar is set to make its first appearance at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. According to its website, however, the company is currently looking for welders, composite experts, electro-mechanics, mechanics, mechanical engineers and mechatronic engineers. Call us skeptical if you must, but there?s a strong chance that Geneva is the first and last we'll see of this thing...
