The Pininfarina Sergio Concept has been brought to the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este recently, at Lake Como, in Italy, over the past weekend.
After it was officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, a couple of months ago, the Pininfarina Sergio Concept is ending up in our news once again, this time in a “hotter” environment, the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, at Lake Como, in Italy. The model is paying tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, who sadly passed away last year.
“The capacity of taking an existing car and making a unique product reinforces our coachbuilding roots. The concept encapsulates the three basic values of Pininfarina’s DNA – elegance purity and innovation. The fourth value is emotion: elegant, pure design but always expressed through emotion”, said Fabio Fillipini, the Pininfarina design director, during the Geneva Motor Show, back in March.
As a quick reminder, the Pininfarina Sergio Concept is based on the Ferrari 458 Spider and its interior design is similar to the one used in the supercar produced in Maranello. The model is 4,550 mm long, 1,940 mm wide and 1,140 mm tall, getting a carbon fiber body which is 10 percent lighter than the aluminum panels used on the Ferrari 458 Spider. The Pininfarina Sergio Concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 320 km/h.
