A new report indicates Pininfarina will build six units of the Sergio concept based on the Ferrari 458 Spider.

At last year's Geneva Motor Show Pininfarina unveiled the Sergio concept, a two-seater brachetta designed as a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina who passed away on July 3, 2012 at the age of 85. Shortly after its reveal, rumors emerged about the possibility of a limited production series but nothing materialized. Now, a new report indicates Pininfarina will create six units of the Ferrari 458 Spider-based specialty model and most likely all of them have already been sold.

Pricing hasn't been disclosed yet but previous estimations referred to a price tag situated between 650,000 GBP and 1.3M GBP. While initially it was believed drivers would have to wear a helmet to meet European road homologations, it appears this won't be the case as the Sergio will be fitted with a windscreen as well as side windows. In addition, it will also probably receive a 12mm taller nose to pass pedestrian protection rules.

Note: The attached pictures have not been confirmed yet as being official.
