by Drew Johnson

Pininfarina -- the go-to design house for Ferrari and others -- has unveiled its latest concept car at the Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the Sintesi, the show is not only be stylish but also showcases some new active safety systems.

"This concept car is the synthesis of our values, of the love for our work and our passion for innovation, of beauty driven by functionality, of sportiness and elegance. However, Sintesi isn't only the expression of Pininfarina design; it also embraces innovative technologies that allow us to explore new typologies of mobility, active safety and packaging solutions" said Lowie Vermeersch, the lead designer of the project.

One of the technologies the Sintesi concept debuted was a system Pininfarina calls Clancast. The Clancast system talks with other cars on the road to communicate traffic patterns, eliminating the need for traffic lights and other street signs.

The Sintesi concept has seating for four and develops more than 700 horsepower from its hydrogen powertrain.

The show car was penned under the supervision of Lowie Vermeersch -- the company's head of design -- and is the first concept Pininfarina has shown in three years.
