The saga of whether Bertone will or will not be at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show to debut its Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 11 concept is over. Automotive News Europe is reporting that the Italign design house will display the vehicle you see above in Geneva, just not at the Palexpo where the auto show is taking place. Bertone's Vice Chairperson Marie-Jeanne Bertone told AN that her mother Lilli, who is also Bertone's Chairperson, had cancelled the company's booth at the Geneva show. Unfortunately, it's not yet known where within the city limits of Geneva the car will debut. We assume it will be a shady part of town and a password might be required to get in. Despite the highly unorthodox unveiling, the B.A.T. 11 looks every bit as dynamic as the original B.A.T. concepts from which it takes inspiration. Being that it's based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione platform, it probably goes like stink, too. We'll do our best to infiltrate the Swiss underground scene and bring you back some live shots.

      That's actually a pretty decent modern rendering of the old BAT. I wouldn't mind having a BAT parked in the ol' cave...

      The 1950s called, they want their concept car back.

      There is so much more to this car... the inspiration, the purpose, the mission.

      It's a shame no one knows the full story.

      Aren't concept car supposed to be about the wild and crazy? I like it, even if does hark back to the '50s. This one can stand to be retro and futuristic at the same time...

      What's with all the American-retro-inspired designs from the Europeans? Ewww.
