Pininfarina Sergio is a tribute to the Italian coach builder’s legendary chairman who died last year. Styling of the original 458 Spider’s has lasted in the new Sergio Concept with no change in its original technology and performance. However changes made are the body is replaced by a full carbon fiber reducing the body weight to 10% compared to the usual used factory aluminium.
The attractive feature of the new Sergio concept is that there is no Windscreen i,e it is uniquely designed such that the air deflects over the car’s bonnet to create a ‘virtual windscreen’ that channels air over the heads of the passengers and protects them from turbulence. The loss of windscreen is covered by a wing inserted in the front bumper to balance the aerodynamic load.
The Sergio concept is loaded with 21″inches alloy wheel, LED Tail-lights, LED headlamps and with the small half doors opening upwards. Pininfarina has defined the Sergio as a car that could reach limited-series production. The Sergio can cover 0-100 kph in less than 3.4 sec.
