The Immaculate Conception



THE NAME OF SERGIO PININFARINA is inextricably linked to one brand in particular: Ferrari. The fruitful collaboration with Ferrari began in 1952 and has generated some of the most popular sports cars of the postwar period. Even after his death his company lives on. This new Pininfarina concept car, named Sergio, after the man himself, has the mechanicals of the 458 Spider, which remains unchanged in its wheelbase and tracks. 


This concept car approach is reminiscent of Pininfarina’s Ferrari-based custom-built cars such as the Testarossa Spider made for Giovanni Agnelli in 1987 or the Ferrari F360 Modena Barchetta in 2000 for Ferrari Chairman Luca Montezemolo. 

Sportsmanship in the truest sense of the joy of driving, the passion of those who view cars as an unequalled source of excitement, the pleasure of admiring a one-off car by Pininfarina. The car’s proportions are pushed to the extreme, a dynamic front volume penetrating into a rear that is projected forward, a sculpted, three-dimensional interpretation of the typical barchetta. The Sergio also expresses an iconicity linked to ‘60s Ferraris proposing bulging and sensual wings inspired by those of sports cars and racing cars of that era. 

Pininfarina say that while this may be a concept car, they design for “special” clients, which makes it a real car, not just a show car.
