Pininfarina Sintesi: update

Pininfarina has finally revealed the first images of the upcoming Sintesi Concept. The exterior is a mix of a coupé and a shooting-brake and adopts a classical formal language combined with modern design elements.

The exterior design features a sleek profile with a very large windshield surface and an originally shaped front spoiler. Both the front and rear doors have a verticale opening system.

The overall flowing and smooth look of the side view is combined with the sharp edges that characterize the wheels, the front end and the rear end, while the side air intakes and outlets give a sporty touch to an already dynamic design and create an interplay of covex and concave surfaces.

The Pininfarina Sintesi’s architecture is based on a monostructure that integrates moulded elements of the interior as well as the hydrogen cells.

Pininfarina Sintesi ConceptThe fuel cell technology was developed in partnership with Nuvera Fuel Cells and features four in-wheel electric motors coupled with four batteries located inside the frame near the wheels.

The total output is around 700 hp. The center tunnel integrates a bio-fuel tank and a reformer capable of producing hydrogen.

Sintesi is also equipped with a wireless system called Clancast, developed by Reicom, which manages all the communications between sensors and the control unit, between the car and passengers and also among different vehicles.

Other technical partners of the project include Materialise, Osram (LED technology) and Pi Shurlock.

Andrea Pininfarina has commented: "Our designers have always kept in mind the future, because our most important task is to advance the further evolution of the car."
