Ferrari Pinin

This one-off car has participated in various international elegance contests and was displayed in both Ferrari Museums, both in Maranello and in Modena. It’s an extremely rare piece of history of a great automobile factory and of an equally important car designer.

The prototype was unveiled at the Turin Auto Show in 1980 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Pininfarina company: the Ferrari Pinin named its founder, Battista Pininfarina, nicknamed Pinin. This concept car was a sedan with a futuristic design and is to date the only official four-door Ferrari ever built. The Ferrari Pinin had many technological features, such as enormous flush-mounted windows, self-ventilated wheel rims, led lights in place of the classic fuel and temperature gauges, backlit tachometer and speed indicators, bumpers nestled into the bodywork and much more... The Pinin used carburetor-version BB 512 mechanics, though front-positioned. This model continued to be developed until 1983. When the second one was ready for testing, the Pinin project was abandoned as there was no desire to enter into competition with the big German manufacturers of sedans. The Pinin remained in the Pininfarina Collection for many years and in 1992 it went into the important collection of Jacques Swaters of Garage Francorchamps in Belgium.
