Alfa Romeo Pandion

The Alfa Romeo Centennial celebration concept

First concept car as Bertone Design Director was presented in 2010 and was commissioned by Alfa Romeo CEO Sergio Cravero to celebrate their Centennial Anniversary. The fully driveable prototype was designed and built in just 4 1/2 months and was full of radical, cutting-edge solutions. testifying to the importance of this advanced research project.

The Pandion was featured in the 2010 Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance, which celebrated Alfa Romeo's Centennial Anniversary. The name Pandion comes from "Pandion Haliaetus", the scientific name for the Osprey, which dives into the ocean for fish with it's wings straight up, just like the "wings" on the Alfa Romeo Pandion.
