IDEA Sofia

Turin-based IDEA Institute presented its Sofia showcar at the Geneva show, showcasing a new design direction for a hybrid-powered four-seat sedan. Shown as an exterior model only, the Sofia is a streamlined study with a sculptured hood, fenders that rise above the beltline and a dynamic shoulder leading to a pronounced rear diffuser.

The sedan's lines and shape clearly embody relation to its ERA concept, presented in Geneva last year, but the company claims the showcar was also inspired by the female form. According to IDEA, the Sofia "is Italian to the core: its shape, its look, its elegance and name are instantly recognized as being synonymous with Italian styling and beauty."
