The Diatto Ottovù concept car that was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show back in March will be entering production in a limited run of just 99 cars. Penned by famous Italian design studio Zagato, the original concept cars, of which there were two, were designed and built for two wealthy Italians that desired a car that was as stylish and exclusive as a Bugatti.

Created in 1835 with a Perfected Wheel patent, Diatto made its first car in 1905 and often crossed paths with Zagato in its close collaboration with Ettore Bugatti, the Maserati brothers and Tazio Nuvolari.

The modern day Diatto Ottovù will be powered by a 4.6-liter V-8 engine sourced from Ford, which develops between 530 and 650 horsepower. With a curb weight of approximately 1,450 kilograms, the stylish coupe should reach 62 mph from rest in less than four seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 186 mph.
