Pininfarina today revealed the first sketch of the Sintesi Concept that will be unveiled in five weeks at the Geneva Motor Show. The Sintesi (meaning "summary" in Italian) is a perfect combination of sportiness and functionality.
It is the natural heir to the last two Pininfarina prototypes: Birdcage 75th and Nido.
The Sintesi project has been inspired by the sportiness and innovative styling, the use and the testing of new technologies evident in the Birdcage 75th, shown at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show.
More about the Concept after the jump.
Until now when you said "Pininfarina" you thought of cars like Ferrari, Maserati, or, in another words cars that many of us can afford them. But the company announced that will build electric cars with French battery specialist Bolloré. The car has no names yet, it will be built in Italy and sold across Europe, US and Japan starting 2010.
Pininfarina will unveil a new concept at the next Geneva Motor Show in March, 2008. This exciting new car will be named “Sintesi”.
Pininfarina is one of the company with the biggest lost this year: net loss increased in the first nine months to 39.1 million euro from 16.3 million euro in the same period last year. This is why the company is looking for new partners and is preparing a new industrial and financial plan with the help of Roland Berger.
The Ferrari 375 was introduced at the Paris Salon in 1953. During its production run which lasted until May of 1954, less than 45 examples of the 375 America were produced. The car was constructed for Ferrari’s clientele who had the means to afford one of these beautiful creations. Since they were produced in limited numbers, the production took far longer than volume models.
