Pininfarina Maserati Birdcage Concept is one sweet car

Here’s another concept car that, if it actually ever makes it to production, you still won’t be able to afford it. Pininfarina of Italy has a history of designing radically different concept cars and with the 2005 Geneva show, they have renewed their pedigree with the Maserati Birdcage in celebration of their 75th anniversary. Despite its strange name, the Birdcage is one sweet looking car.

If you’re looking for oodles of power, this supercar, reportedly inspired by the 1970 Ferrari Modulo and the 1961 Maserati Tipo 63 Birdcage, clearly will not disappoint. Word is that the engine under the hood is based on the Maserati MC12’s 6.0-litre V12, putting out over 700 horsepower. That’ll certainly give you quite a rush, flying down the Autobahn at unfathomable speeds.

Beyond that, expect seamless driver-car interfaces developed by Motorola, 20- and 22-inch wheels, and a heads-up display that doubles as the instrument panel. “Where are the doors?” you might ask. Truth be told, there aren’t any. The nose pops up and forward to reveal all this interior goodness… but I’m still drooling over the outside.
