The Sintesi is a sports car with four doors and four seats, developed by a highly innovative approach: it does not consider the car as a shape that covers the mechanicals, but one that gives a shape to the mechanicals around the passengers, starting from the latter. This approach, which is known as “Liquid” Packaging, has overturned traditional volumetric balances, improving weight distribution and lowering the centre of gravity, which are important elements for driving dynamics.

This was made possible by close collaboration with Nuvera, which developed the Quadrivium Fuel Cells system, the various components of which were distributed around the car, with four fuel cells positioned near to the wheels. The result is that the space for passengers is much more generous – in proportion to the total volume of the car – without detracting from the sporty line with its relaxed, elegant profile which is sleek, tapered and aerodynamic (Cd = 0.27). The modular nature of the fuel cells, combined with the batteries and a sophisticated overall electronic architecture (developed with PI Shurlok), allows for modular use of the available power depending on driving conditions.

Pininfarina today revealed the third round of informations about the Sintesi Concept, including the first teaser image. As the company reports everything in Sintesi has been designed to minimize drag and make aerodynamic performance as efficient as possible.

The concept will feature new technologies, fuel cell and batteries, enables a more sophisticated and integrated use of space. The fuel cells and batteries will be placed all around the vehicle, instead of stacked together in the boot.

Stay tuned for more details!

Pininfarina released today the third round of informations about the Sintesi Concept that will be revealed next month at the Geneva Motor Show.

Sintesi is equipped with Clancast technology and it can interconnect automatically with other vehicles, creating a real "living connecting tissue" on which travels every kind of data.

A completely decentralized data-transmission network where cars can communicate to the other vehicles their status and particular events. A network whee traffic and security information can travel updated in real time.

Pininfarina Sintesi - more details

As you know, Pininfarina will launch the Sintesi Concept in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Last week the company announced that every week until the launch they will reveal new details about the concept.

Last week they revealed that the Sintesi is inspired by another two Concepts: the Birdcage 75th and Nido; and that the Sintesi (summary in Italian) is a perfect combination of sportiness and functionality.

This week, Pininfarina announced the concept will feature new technologies, fuel cell and batteries, enables a more sophisticated and integrated use of space. The fuel cells and batteries will be placed all around the vehicle, instead of stacked together in the boot.

The Sintesi was designed with notion of "liquid packaging" in their minds. This is a metaphor that express the possibility of fragmentation of once compact, solid parts which now, almost like a liquid, can occupy spaces never used before.

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.
