This concept car is symbolic of I.DE.A Institute's continued drive to renew the company, which began in 2007. The styling by the new Design Center and the workmanship of the model makers and show car builders have together created this new "all-Italian" model, aptly named "SOFIA".

The sedan's lines and shape reflect how the car is related to its forerunner, ERA, presented in Geneva last year. SOFIA is also inspired by the female form: its flanks, glance and elegance are emphasised by a glamorous red dress.

SOFIA is a concentration of sportiness and elegance. The curves are graceful, the lines smooth and supple, the shape and profile are as enchanting and alluring as a female figure. The front and rear light clusters convey a captivating and inviting look.

Sculpted lines emphasise the front and rear wings with the bird's eye view showing off the car's hourglass figure. This latest concept car is Italian to the core: its shape, its look, its elegance and name are instantly recognised as being synonymous with Italian styling and beauty.

The mechanical layout is designed for an 8-cylinder engine with front or rear-wheel drive. A hybrid configuration with an endothermic engine combined with an electrical alternator/actuator is also possible.
