At that time in 2010 when Bertone showed a unique concept car at the Geneva Motor Show 2010, named 'Alfa Romeo Pandion'. The one-off concept car was quite unique in terms of shape and also when the car door opens upward as high as 3.6 meters. Perhaps, it's the longest car door ever made until today. The concept car carries a 4.7-liter V8 engine and claimed capable of spewing power up to 445 hp.

According to the manufacturer, Pandion created to commemorate 100 years of Alfa Romeo in the automotive world at the time. The Bertone's Alfa Romeo Pandion concept name comes from the animal world, as Pandion Haliaetus is the scientific name for an Osprey: a sea hawk that nests and lives in coastal areas.

The Pandion’s design is based on the "Skin & Frame" design language: "Skin" refers to the snake in the logo, representing the world renowned Italian excellence in beautiful, seductive forms; and "Frame" refers to the cross in the logo, representing the mechanical excellence in high performance Italian race cars.

The concept’s front is defined by a sculpted sloping bonnet with typical Alfa quad headlights, a typical five horizontal bars radiator grille and doors that open by rotating backwards, ending up a perfect 90 degrees above the center of the rear wheel, lifting up the entire body side of the vehicle, from the front fender to the rear fender.
A glimpse or perhaps only in our view, this concept car is almost similar to the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics, but the Pandion designers claimed there are no similarity between these two cars. Although the designers do not agree with the 'similar' statement above. Let us consider and compare these two cars, at least we found there are some similarities on the both cars, like on the front fascia section, the use of glass that extends from the front, the roof to the door. And what do you think? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOP SPEED]
