The design sketch gives us our first clear look at the sporty Sergio barchetta, which features a low and menacing front-end, powerful wheel arches and slippery red and black body panels.

The sans-windscreen design enhances the Pininfarina Sergio concept’s minimalist, aerodynamic styling, while headrests integrated into the rollbar inject additional originality.

Penned as a tribute to the late chairman of the iconic Italian design house, Sergio Pininfarina, who died last July aged 85, its designers describe the concept as a “unique and extreme object”.

“[The Pininfarina Sergio is] a concept car which renews the spirit of the extraordinary achievements born under Sergio Pininfarina's guide, projecting them towards the future in the name of exclusivity, innovation and passion.

“Sportsmanship in the truest sense, joy of driving, passion of those who think at the car as an excellent source of emotions, pleasure of admiring the unique forms of a custom-designed model by Pininfarina.”

More information on the Pininfarina Sergio concept, including mechanical details and interior images, will be revealed in Geneva on March 5.
