One of the greatest ever exhibits of a collection of Ferraris is underway in Italy as the Italian supercar company opens an event dedicated to Sergio Pinanfarina in the wake of his death earlier this year.
Both production models and concept cars are part of the exhibition in the Ferrari Museum in the homeplace of Ferrari Maranello. All of the cars on show are there to honor Sergio Pinanfarina who was a legendary designer for the luxury car company before his death in July 2012.
The exhibits feature cars that were made when Sergio made his most pivotal contributions to the company. Son of Pininfarina founder Battista Farina , Sergio began his career with the Prancing Horse company back in 1952 and his contributions would change the face of the luxury car world forever.
Luca di Montezemolo, Ferrari Chairman, current Pininfarina boss Paolo Pininfarina, Sergio’s wife Giorgia and son of Enzo Ferrari Piero Ferrari all attended the opening ceremony.
The museum will host the exhibition until January 7 and it showcases 22 models that include one-off special editions such as the Pinin Concept. This car was Ferrari’s only attempt at creating a four-door model while the 330 GTC Speciale that was formerly owned by Lilian, Princess de Rethy of Belgium can also be spotted at the exhibition.
These magnificent luxury cars will be displayed in three halls that will represent the following:
- Race cars
- Concept cars
- Production cars
Some of the most poignant cars on display at the event are the racing cars that Pininfarina penned for the company including:
- A Ferrari 250 LM
- A Ferrari 500 Mondial
- A Ferrari 250 Berlinetta
- A 373 Ferrari MM racer
- A 1969 Sigma F1 prototype
There are 11 road cars on display including a 1964 275 GTB4 plus the Testarossa and 599 SA Aperta.
