Pininfarina Cambiano Concept – Review Part 1

by Site Default

Released just before the Geneva Motor Show, the Pininfarina Cambiano concept announces to be one of the best hybrid vehicles on the market, and a possible replacement for the Quattroporte.

Pininfarina, as you might know, is actually a car design company that created the look of many widely-known vehicles, like the Maserati Quattroporte. The Cambiano borrows some of the elements of that supercar, but under the hood it’s entirely new, and quite surprising one might add.

As I said at the beginning of this article, the Cambiano will be a hybrid – but no ordinary one. Its fossil-fuel power unit will be a PHEV Diesel Turbine – that’s right, a jet-engine. The turbine generates power for the 40 kilowatt hour battery that in turn, sends it to the four 201 horsepower electric motors, one for every wheel. Maximum power is “only” rated at 670 horsepower, because only that much power can get to the wheels. The torque is 472 lb-ft. This car presents an excellent case of torque vectoring and an electric all-wheel drive.

Thanks to the power that comes with this concept, a production model will be able to make the 0 to 60 run in just 4.1 seconds, and hit a top speed of 155 mph. That’s also partially possible thanks to the rather small curb weight of 3735 lbs.

We will soon post a second article regarding the Cambiano, so stay tuned for part no. 2 of the Pininfarina Cambiano Review.
