Looking ahead to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show this March, Italian coach builder Pininfarina has officially unveiled the first teaser image of their latest ground-breaking creation: the Cambiano.

As is the case with a lot of teasers coming out these days for Geneva, Pininfarina is keeping a closed lid on any information surrounding the Cambiano, opting only for a few descriptive sentences to kick-start our imaginations into complete overdrive.

In the case of this intriguing concept, Pininfarina has bared this nugget of information describing the car: "it is an elegant and refined sport sedan, conceived with great attention to the environment, both as to the engine and as to the materials’ choice."

Reading between the lines, it appears that the car could be some sort of hybrid sports car that carries the company’s distinctive and provocative styling. Consider us intrigued. As far as the name of choice is concerned, Pininfarina chose Cambiano as a tribute to the city hosting the Pininfarina Group’s headquarters. It’s also no coincidence that the car is being prepared as a celebratory model of sorts to honor of the 30th anniversary of the Styling Center and the 10th anniversary of the Engineering Center, two branches of Pininfarina that have played critical roles in the design and build of a lot of their ultra-exclusive exotics.

We’ll have more info surrounding the Cambiano in the weeks and days leading up to the Geneva Motor Show. For now, you can ogle over the teaser image of the car, which is what we’ve been doing for some time now.

UPDATE 01/13/2012: Pininfarina has unveiled the second teaser for their Cambiano concept; an image that reveals part of the side of the vehicle. It looks as though the Cambiano will have a short bonnet and a set of large alloy wheels. There also seems to be no air inlets, leading us to believe this could be a full-electric vehicle.

UPDATE 01/19/2012: We are getting one step closer to the official opening of the Geneva Motor Show and Pininfarina is offering us a new teaser image of their Cambiano concept. This was shows off the intricate detailing of the roof. Enjoy!

UPDATE 02/06/2012: Pininfarina is continuing its teaser session for the Cambiano concept with a new video of the car set to be released at the Geneva Motor Show. Enjoy!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I don’t like the color of the car. This is good when it was painted on other colors such as Red and Blue. The top view of this car is cute since the roofing has a great design.

Pininfarina shows the half of its top view. From that view, we can see the details of the roof which gives us the hunger for this car. I’m sure that wont be the last.

New teaser! Wow! I am so excited on how this will look on its production. Cambiano is truly teasing us. If this will going to be a full-electric vehicle, I think this will not be that great.
