Pininfarina would be unveiling their concept car called Sergio on March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show.
Sergio has been created as a tribute to the company’s Chairman Sergio Pininfarina who died last year in July. An automobile designer with a tenure scaling 40 years at Pininfarina, Sergio was responsible for designs of a few elite cars such as the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT, the 2003 Maserati Quattroporte and the 1968 Ferrari 250 P/5 concept.
A teaser image of the Sergio concept has been disclosed hinting at a mid-rear engine coupe with a similar running hood to the Pininfarina Ferrari 512S Modulo that was put up on show at the Geneva Motor Show as long as 43 years ago in 1970. For its era, the Modulo was on the extreme side of concept design and holds 22 international design prizes to its credit.
Similar to the Modulo, the Sergio features a black engine hood with circular holes for air circulation around the engine bay. Coming from a designer house such as Pininfarina and the emotional quotient going into making of the car, we’re sure the Sergio would be a special one.
