Behind The Scenes – Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion Commercial

Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion

I’ve always liked Bertone as they designed some of my favorite cars and the Alfa Romeo Pandion looks awesome in my opinion. This commercial was shot last year but the 5 minute behind the scenes clip has just been released.

Zyclotron was in charge with making the commercial and in my opinion they did a very good job. I was surprised to find out how much work goes into a commercial, I always thought that it is relatively easy to make one, I was wrong.

The Pandion concept had its official debut last year at Geneva and was created by Mike Robinson, Bertone’s Design and Brand chief. The idea behind this very sexy design was inspired by the Pandion Haliaetus which is a predatory bird. The design’s theme is “skin and frame”.

The car is powered by a V8 4.7-liter engine that produces 444 hp (450 PS / 331 kW) and 347 lb.-ft (470 Nm) of torque. If these figures sound familiar to you, the engine was borrowed from the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. The car has a curb weight of only 2205 lbs (1000 kg). This beautiful concept was created as part of Alfa’s 100th anniversary celebration and there are many reasons to believe that some of its elements will be found in the upcoming 159 replacement.
