Bertone Pandion concept – Click above to watch the video after the jump

You remember the Bertone Pandion. Who could forget: Bertone's Alfa Romeo show car dropped at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year to rave reviews and dropped jaws. But as fortunate as we were to lay our eyes on it at all, the truth of the matter is that the poor lighting and commercial setting of a major car expo hardly serve as the best conditions for viewing such a fine example of automotive design.

To put as advanced a concept as the Pandion into its proper context, what we really need is some futuristic, post-apocalyptic fantasy world. You know, like The Matrix or The Fifth Element or something – and we're not talking about some Toyota hatchback, either. Fortunately, someone's done exactly that, and we've placed the video after the jump for your cyber-dreaming enjoyment. Heck, if this is what's waiting on the other side, we'll take whatever pill Cadillac's new spokesman tells us to. Thanks for the tip, Boby!

      It is unfeasible, of course. And the marketplace wouldn't be prepared for it, anyway. But it might be the shape of things to come for Alfa Romeo. At least I hope so. In fact, I would like to see more Alfas by Bertone. The GT coupé, which was the last production model Bertone designed for Alfa Romeo, is a criminally underrated car, yet to my eyes it betters the Brera and the 159 with its purer, more sophisticated lines.

      That back end is simply fantastic. I keep imagining flames coming out of it.

      "If you build it,they will come!!!"

      Please build something like this. Alfa makes some nice hot hatches but I am all for them going back to rwd and sexy coupes. Mega Millions is $196 and when I win I know what my one of off will be. Move over Stratos this is true sex on wheels.

      I thought it was one of Michael Bay's cars for the next Transformers movie.

        Not to go even Nerd-ier on you... but I was more so thinking of the Centurions from Battlestar Galactica.

        I agree it looks so much like that BMW concept Vision Efficient Dynamics.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Anyone look at that and think of BMW Vision Dynamics?
