Bertone Pandion Concept: Simply... Gorgeous

The Bertone Pandion bears more than a passing resemblance to the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept, but then holy crap, the doors open and everything changes. Still, it's saving the best trick 'til you get up close.

The real genius in the Pandion is in the front and rear grilles and the wheels. Resembling a pile of magnetized metal shavings or a bird's nest, the feature brings a degree of organized chaos never seen before in car design.

Underneath the skin is a Maserati Gran Turismo chassis and a 4.7-liter Alfa V8.

Bertone wants the Pandion to represent a return to styling mastery. If they can just figure out how to apply the devilish detailing to create an overall shape that's far more resolved and dramatic than this one.
