Pininfarina to build the Ferrari Sergio Concept, sell it for 3 million euros

Article by Christian A., on March 18, 2013

Italian design house Pininfarina is considering a plan to build just five or six units of the Sergio Concept, with each being priced at around 3 million euros. At the Geneva Auto Show where Pininfarina presented this car, its CEO Silvio Angori told Automotive News Europe about this possibility. The stunning Sergio is built using the same underpinnings as the Ferrari 458 Spider.

This concept is regarded as a barchetta since it doesn’t have a windshield or side windows. This is a problem since under homologation rules in Europe, those who drive a car with no windshield have to wear a helmet.

Pininfarina chief designer Fabio Filippini told Automotive News Europe that for the Sergio to have more appeal, it has several extreme design details like the height of the rollbar, which serves as a rear spoiler too, as well as the width of the air intakes for the engine bay. Filippini said they know how to tweak the Sergio concept car so that it could become a “compliant, street-legal model."

He said that a small windshield may be added for buyers who choose to drive without a helmet. This concept car is meant to pay homage to Sergio Pininfarina, its chairman and CEO, who passed away last July at the age of 85. The entire team collaborated on this concept for four months, according to Paolo Pininfarina, Sergio's son and current company chairman.
