Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion [video]

Spec commercial for the Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion concept car shows the car in a futuristic setting

Here's a video for the Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion which serves as a speculative commercial for the concept car. The 2 minute production shows the Pandion concept car in a futuristic setting.

The Pandion concept debuted at the Geneva auto show last March and is the work of Bertone's Design and Brand chief Mike Robinson. The design was inspired by the Pandion Haliaetus (the Osprey) which is a predatory bird. Hence, the reverse scissor doors and the skeletal elements to the design. The theme of the design is 'skin and frame'.

The Pandion comes with a front-mounted 4.7 liter V8 with 450 PS (331 kW / 444 bhp) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque borrowed from the 8C Competizione. It weighs just 1000 kg (2205 lbs).

The concept was created as part of Alfa Romeo's 100th anniversary celebration and the car, or some of its elements, may just be turned into the next 159 replacement.

The Italian Vision EfficientDynamics BMW. Far better model name, of course!

The place in a game remind Tron where Audi have put a car. The concept looks like the futur supercar of BMW. Instead all of this, i like it. The back is great and makes some hope of a big SUV alfa (with those iron tubes who looks like a ducati monster).

Read about the skin and frame concept and it blends well with what the car looks like. I think its a great design concept but just how much will be in the 159?
