As we promised last month, Pininfarina has hit us with a teaser sketch of the upcoming Sintesi concept car. The show car, which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this coming March, is the first concept the famous Italian design house will have shown in three years.

Sintesi is Italian for "summary", and the concept ties together themes from its last two design studies: the Maserati Birdcage 75th that stopped the Geneva show in 2005, and the Nido city-car from Paris '04. The design for the new Sintesi was directed by Lowie Vermeersch, head of the company's design department. We'll look forward to bringing you more as Pininfarina doles it out, but you can check out their nifty cyber-mag in the meantime by following the link below.

      I sooo want the Birdcage. Single most compelling supercar concept since the McLaren F1.

      The sketch looks odd, but I will reserve judgement until I see pics of the actual concept car.

      Either the front wheel well is very deep (and perfectly fits the slim profiled tires), or its rims and tires look ... wrong.

      Ugly... and unpractical... (i can almost smell the flaming coming from pininfarina unconditional fanboys/fangirls...)

      I don't even know what to say. I guess "heinous" is the best word I can come up with.
