Picasso by name, Picasso by nature?

We've been treated to a number of exotic new super-and-hypercar manufacturers in the past few years. We've had Rimac, Czinger, and now we can add another name to that list - Picasso.

Situated in glorious Switzerland, its neighbouring countries have produced the likes of Bugatti, Lamborghini and Porsche, so it's about time the Swiss got a slice of the action. Now, Picasso has started releasing teaser images of their first car, known as the PS-01.

While the company only seems to be sharing 50% profile shots on their Instagram account, a quick bit of Photoshop wizardry gives us a pretty good idea of what the final car is going to look like, less a few details that have been cleverly hidden through the use of dramatic lighting in the photos.

The images showcase the potentially divisive styling of the PS-01. Prominent rear arches and flowing lines mimick the PR line that the car was "shaped by the wind" though no doubt the harsh-looking edges and aerodynamic parts will be somewhat 'marmite' in their nature.

This new supercar tips the scales at just 1,984lbs, and gets there thanks to a heavy dependency on Carbon Fibre for its bodywork, including a 10.5 ft single-piece panel; Impressive stuff!

So far, information and specs on the car are few and far between, though there is a rumour circulating that we could see a twin-turbo V6 powering the lightweight, mid-engined supercar.

The next phase of testing is to take place in Lugano, Switzerland, ahead of the car's completion in Spring 2021. This is also a pretty serious company, utilising top-shelf parts - Carbo Brakes, Ohlins and Sadev are all said to be supplying components for the car, which is shaping up to be a real game-changer.

With only a short timeframe left until the car is expected to be seen out in the open, it is now just a waiting game before we get to see this new creation 'in the flesh' - who else is excited?
