Turin-based I.DE.A Institute showcased this concept at the Geneva show earlier this month. It’s called the SOFIA concept, and the feminine name is quite suitable as the car’s designers intended for it to be inspired by the ‘female form’ – we’re talking about lots of curves making up a nice hourglass figure. Their exact words – ‘its flanks, glance and elegance are emphasised by a glamorous red dress.’

The SOFIA has classic front engined sports car proportions which can be found on other beauties like Maseratis and Aston Martins. It’s actually a sedan, sporting four doors. There’s nothing in the engine bay at this point of time, but I.DE.A says the packaging is suitable for a typical V8 or even a hybrid powertrain.

Look after the jump for an 8 photo gallery of the SOFIA.
