‘Innovative’ design will be revealed on 1 March

Italian design house Pininfarina has confirmed that it will reveal a new car at the Geneva motor show this March.

To whet our appetites, the iconic firm has released a single teaser image revealing what appears to be the new car’s nose.

Pininfarina has refrained from providing any specific details, but in an official release, it describes the car as an “innovative stylistic and technological jewel”.

Looking at the aerodynamic design of the nose, it seems likely that it’ll be a performance model, and recent history suggests it could also be a special one-off model commissioned by a private buyer.

Pininfarina’s recent work includes the curvaceous Ferarri 458-based Sergio Pininfarina, and the V12-engined BMW Grand Lusso Coupé concept.

Business giant Mahindra bought a controlling stake in Pininfarina last year. The Indian company has announced it intends to reduce the Italian firm’s €52 million debt, and this new model will be the first under the new ownership.

Pininfarina will pull the covers off its new design at the Geneva motor show on 1 March.
