Bermat GT: As a racer, combustion engine and electric vehicle

A new GT sports car is arriving from Italy. It should start its career as a racing car and then hit the road as a combustion engine and electric model.

Italy and sports cars - sounds like a hypercar immediately. However, this is not the case with the Bermat GT. With the GT, the team from Rovereto has developed a sports car that is down to earth in terms of performance and can be extensively customized. In addition, three versions are planned: one for the race track and two for the road, which will come with either a combustion engine or an electric drive. The Bermat brand goes back to the company founder Matteo Bertezzolo, from whose name the company name is composed. JAS Motorsport and Camal Studio have been brought on board as development partners.

Two-seater with motorsport technology

The result is a 4.60 meter long, two meter wide and 1.20 meter high sports car with gullwing doors and a 2.60 meter wheelbase. The centerpiece is a monocoque made of carbon fiber laminate. The front and rear end are made of tubular steel and are flanged on. A tubular steel safety cage stretches over the passenger compartment. The complete package should meet FIA specifications and is therefore suitable for the race track. The body stretched over it is also made of carbon fiber laminate. This is formally based on well-known sports car specifications. The nose crouches low and is sharply cut. Large openings in the flanks direct fresh air to the engine. The heavily retracted sill area relies on air flow on both axles. The sloping roof area at the rear and the rising wheel arches lead to a steep integrated spoiler. Flanking small round rear lights are used. The basement is dominated by a diffuser.

Only a four-cylinder, but with supercharging

The chassis with pushrod-controlled spring struts can be fully adjusted. 19-inch light-alloy wheels from OZ, which are spanned with wide tires, are attached to the wishbones. Behind it are 380 mm brake discs with six-piston calipers at the front, and four-piston calipers in combination with 355 mm discs at the rear. The drive power comes from a four-cylinder with supercharging installed longitudinally behind the passengers. Its performance can be configured from 320 to 400 hp. The torque can increase to up to 450 Nm. The sequential six-speed gearbox sits behind it and controls the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. Later, the Bermat will also come with a purely electric drive train. However, there is no information on this yet.,

In the cockpit, the two passengers, who are seated in carbon racing seat shells, can expect a completely digital twelve-inch instrument cluster, a racing steering wheel with numerous control buttons and a raised control island with a multi-controller. The entire cockpit landscape relies on visible carbon.

Start planned for 2022

In the GT Pista racing version, which weighs just under 1,100 kilograms, the Bermat is scheduled to make its debut in 2022. Road and electric variants are to follow promptly. More precise dates were not given. Possible prices and production figures are also not mentioned.

Conclusion

With the Bermat GT, another new two-seater is trying to gain a foothold in the sports car market. In addition to a racing version, a street version and an electric version are also planned. Only time will tell what will actually be implemented.
