The design studio Pininfarina has announced that they will unveil a new concept car based on an undetermined Alfa Romeo this March at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show as part of the relationship between the two exotic Italian brands and will commemorate both Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary as well as Alfa Romeo’s centennial.
The Pininfarina Geneva concept will continue the tradition of successful spiders that have gone from simple sketches to road going automobiles thanks to the two automaker’s collaborations of the past. The only details that Pininfarina cared to elaborate on is that the show car will continue the two passenger open air spider theme. While we would expect to see something along the lines of a rebodied 8C super car, Pininfarina may surprise us by chopping the top off of a turbocharged Multiair MiTo before removing the back seat following the fuel efficient future trend towards premium compacts that is becoming all too apparent in the automobile industry. Either way it is sure to make the Quadrifoglio crowd proud.
