    The Sintesi features four suicide scissor doors, a 0.27 coefficient of drag, and rear lights that not only feature the newest LED Osram technology but also have cameras and sensors. The lights visually connect the rear styling to the side by underlining the car's central axis. But one of this concept's most amazing features lies inside.

    The entire instrument panel is one translucent piece that uses various light displays to show information. If you look closely, it really is the entire dashboard from one end to the other, not just the oval-shaped display in the center. The company claims that the car could help do away with traffic signals and road signs altogether, since it displays them all inside the vehicle as you approach them. Transparent Mobility refers to the futuristic communication system where a vehicle such as the Pininfarina Sintesi can exchange information with other vehicles and traffic technology, seamlessly and transparently through wireless technology. This smart technology will lead to safer driving as drivers will be alerted to potential dangers on the roads ahead.

    The car is an electric-hydrogen hybrid, with small fuel cells located throughout the vehicle rather than in one central location. The system is expected to deliver in the neighborhood of 700 hp. All of this sounds incredibly cool and yet maddeningly vague. The company has been slowly revealing the car and its features over the course of several months.

    (No side view mirrors... are there cameras in those fender holes?)
