Batista Pininfarina's personal championing of this radical project to build a more efficie...

The name Pininfarina is synonymous with expensive and elegant Italian sports cars such as the Maserati GranTurismo, Alfa Romeo Spyder and a log file of Ferraris such as the 365 GTB/4, Enzo, F40 and Testarossa. The global design legend does much more than style beautiful cars though, and ample testimony will appear at auction this week in the form of a little known 1960s concept car. With its four wheels arranged in a diamond shape, the tiny aerodynamic four-seater Pininfarina-X had a drag coefficient of 0.23, indicating that Pininfarina was a long way ahead of the rest of the world in exploring the critical area of aerodynamics, long before it was fashionable.  Read More

The all-new Ferrari Sergio celebrates more than 60 years of collaboration between the Prancing Horse and Pininfarina, the Italian design house that has styled the majority of Ferrari's legendary road cars.

The Ferrari California T is Ferrari's first turbo since the F40 hypercar

Ferrari hasn't fielded a turbo since it stopped building the F40 hypercar back in 1992. That changes in March when the car maker premières its mid-front-engine, retractable hard top berlinetta California T at the Geneva Motor Show. With the T standing for Turbo, the new California Grand Touring sports car has been redesigned to mark the occasion by the Ferrari Style Center and Pininfarina with aerodynamics to match the new powerplant.  Read More

Pininfarina Sergio concept

The world usually sees cars like the Pininfarina Sergio at a few select international auto shows during the debut year. Then the outlandishly-styled cars retire to their designers' headquarters and museums, peeping out every so often for special events and shows. Sometimes they fetch millions at auctions.
