Design house Pininfarina is reportedly reviewing the potential for a run of production models based on its Sergio concept, new reports suggest.

Speaking with US industry paper Automotive News, Pininfarina boss Silvio Angori said the cars would be priced at around AU$3.7 million each, with production numbers capped at five or six units.

The company is understood to be debating whether to make the cars road-legal, which would require a more robust roll bar and - if helmets are to be avoided - a windshield.

Chief designer Fabio Filippini added that the screen would likely be optional, depending on whether buys intend to drive the topless supercar or - as with most cars this rare - store it away.

"We already know how and where to modify the Sergio concept car to make it into a compliant, street-legal model," Filippini told the paper.

Developed together with Ferrari, the Sergio is named in honour of company founder Battista Farina's son, who led the company from 1966 until 2001. Sergio Pininfarina passed away in 2012.

The Sergio shares its platform and mechanical components with the Ferrari 458 Spider, utilising the same wheelbase and track, but featuring its own unique pure-Pininfarina styling.

As with the Ferrari, the Sergio is powered by a 4.5 litre V8 engine, producing 425kW and promising a 0-100km/h time below 3.4 seconds.
