The Pininfarina Sergio concept car was created to pay tribute to the Italian design house's late chairman and CEO, Sergio Pininfarina, who passed away last year at an age of 85. The stunning concept was displayed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

According to Paolo Pininfarina, Sergio's son and chairman of the company, the concept was the result of a four-month labour of love by the entire team. Now, there is a chance that you could own a piece of the Sergio concept as there is a rumor that Pininfarina may produce 6 units of the concept at a price tag of about 3 million euros each.

The Sergio concept, which is based on the Ferrari 458, sports a barchetta design as it has no windshield or side windows. A barchetta was originally an Italian style of open 2-seater sports car which was built for racing. If the car enters production, it will definitely get a windscreen to make it road-legal. Pininfarina chief designer Fabio Filippini said that they already know how and where to modify the Sergio concept car to make it into a compliant, street-legal model.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
