Are you ready for the word "coupe" to carry more baggage? The designers call the Cambiano a coupe, but it's got three doors: one on the left, two on the right. Other details are as novel: it's roughly 16 feet long, weighs 3,740 pounds and is gets its power from a diesel-fueled microturbine providing juice to four electric motors of 80 horsepower each. The stats are estimated to include a 4.2-second run from zero to 60 mph and an all-electric range of "better than 200 kilometers." That's 125 miles, which implies a big battery pack. When fully charged and filled with diesel, the car can go for a bladder-busting 800 km (497 miles).
There's a lot going on with the design so have a look at the photos in the gallery and judge for yourselves, but we find ourselves mesmerized by a Dodge Daytona Charger backlight that flows into an Intrepid rear end. Pininfarina designers spoke like there was more to this car than just a concept exercise, though, so we'll look forward to seeing it in Geneva.
