Sergio Could be Yours for $2 Million

Pininfarina's one-of-a-kind Ferrari speedster may not be one-of-a-kind for much longer, but the price of admission won't be cheap.
Pininfarina has been showing off its new Sergio concept across Europe. It first debuted in Geneva, then went south for the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, and has since showcased at a gathering in the UK. But the famed Italian design studio isn't just showing off – according to Car and Driver, it's taking orders. The Sergio was crafted as a tribute to the company's late chairman. It's based on a Ferrari 458, but replaces its aluminum body panels with windowless carbon-fiber barchetta-style coachwork. And the result is rather stunning.

Pinifarina is reportedly talking to prospective customers about building a limited quantity of them (likely no more than five), each with a price tag of around $2 million. Which may seem like a big chunk of change – and it is – but that's still less than you'd spend on a Bugatti Vitesse roadster, and this one is a lot more exclusive. The new computers Pininfarina acquired from French aerospace concern Dessault which it used to complete the Sergio in less than four months could also reduce the costs and development time for new projects as well. So look forward to some exciting new things from Pininfarina in the near future.
