If there’s one car that has been kept close to its vest by its manufacturer this close to the Geneva Motor Show, the I.D.E.A. Institute’s Sofia hybrid sports sedan takes the whole cake.

While most automakers have started supplying us with teasers and first official photos of their entries to Geneva, the I.D.E.A. Institute has given us three CGI images of the car. That’s about it. Then again, beggars can’t be choosers so we’ll take these photos over nothing.

In addition to these renderings, the I.D.E.A. Institute did give us something
to work with, saying that the concept car will be instantly recognizable through its “Italian styling and beauty”. Like we said, it’s better than nothing.

In any case, this is the second year in a row that the I.D.E.A. Institute has booked a ticket to Geneva after a long sabbatical, and if last year’s concept car – the ERA roadster – is any indication, then we might be in for another pleasant surprise from these fellows.

I’d say that those photos are more than enough for a good teaser. It looks innovative actually and I love on how fluid the lines of the car is. I wonder how good it performs though. I’m really looking forward to seeing in this car soon.

A Sophia Hybrid looks like a gallant warrior from the future. I’m always fond of a futuristic model. I agree to the I.D.E.A institute. This one is very recognizable.

that was an amazing looking sports car, very sexy body trim and aggressive.
