Pininfarina Sergio Concept

You can be sure that we'll be bringing you live images of the Pininfarina Sergio Concept from the Geneva Motor Show next week, but in the meantime, we suggest you take a gander at the image above (click to view it in high res). As you can see, the concept sits as low to the ground as possible, in the best Italian tradition, and it eschews a windshield in favor of what we assume are precise wind-cheating aerodynamics and what appears to be a roll bar with headrests behind the passenger compartment. We'll have to wait a little longer for any more details, such as what's powering this wedge-shaped machine.

This is the first full image the Italian coachbuilder has published, which it says "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." Built in honor of Sergio Pininfarina, Life Senator and Honorary Chairman of the Pininfarina Group, who passed away in July of 2012, this two-seat red barchetta would be a perfect prop for impromptu Geddy Lee impersonations. Feel free to read the extremely sparse press release below, and stay tuned for live images within the next few days.
