named after sergio pininfarina, the italian car designer who was responsible for some of ferrari’s iconic classics such as the 250 GT coupe and F40 – the pininfarina ‘sergio’ serves to celebrate the man’s legendary vision, who passed away in july of 2012 at the age of 85. presented at the 2013 geneva international motor show, the limited-series concept takes the form of a two-seater barchetta. courtesy of a ferrari supplied 570-horsepower 4.5-liter V8 engine, the roadster is capable of doing 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds before maxing at a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). the windshield-less sports car is based on a modern interpretation of sergio pininfarina’s masterpieces – the 1965 dino berlinetta speciale.

  • BELLISSIMO

    Babak Fassihi (Architect) says:
  • 300kmh no windshield – good luck with that

    toby says:
  • this reminds me of the car that was used int the movie A Clockwork Orange. That car, named the “Prova” was built on a Lotus frame – and is in storage in Miami, Florida.

    trimtab21 says:
  • The front airfoil directs the air over the driver’s head. Good seen Ferrari using same concept Renault used in the Sport Spider in the 90’s

    Abacco says:
  • Awesome !!

    Farah says:
  • @ Babak Fassihi Aaaaah have you never watched F1? I’m pretty sure Ferrari knows how to handle aerodynamics. Architects who know anything understand that engineers know how to deal with wind. And just FYI it’s meant to be driven with a helmet…

  • reply to Devin du Plessis
    Unfortunately flying stones, poor animals crossing the road or a bird flying low at those speeds defy aerodynamics. FYI if some one buys a car like that is to enjoy a frame less view of the surrounding environment , if he or she has to were a helmet it would be much less costly to buy a motor bike.FYI engineers don’t always know how to deal with wind there are numerous examples if you care to do some research Devin. For your knowledge I have been an avid F1 fan for the past 30 years.

    Babak Fassihi (Architect) says:
  • NEWSFLASH. It’s a concept car. Does anyone know what ‘concept’ means. IF, and that’s a big if, it gets produced they will likely make a few changes…………. like perhaps a top and a windshield.
