Pininfarina chief executive reveals the Sergio Concept could enter limited production.
In an interview given to Automotive News Europe, Pininfarina CEO Silvio Angori said "five to six units" could be made. If you wanted to buy the Lamborghini Veneno but lucked out, for the same amount of money (3M EUR / 3.8M USD) you might be able to get the Ferrari 458 Spider-based Sergio.
Designed as a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina (who died last July at 85), the Sergio concept is 4550mm long, 1940mm wide and 1140mm tall. It weighs 2,821 lbs (1,280 kg) and features a two-seat layout with two doors and without a windscreen (two helmets included). It has a V8 4499cc engine mated to a 7-speed sequential gearbox which enables the car to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 3.4 seconds, on its way to an estimated top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).
Chief designer Fabio Filippini said they already know what modifications have to be made in order to make it street legal. European homologation rules allow people to drive a car which doesn't have a windshield with the condition they wear a helmet. Filippini said Pininfarina could offer a windshield for those who don't like helmets.
