Ferrari Pinin 4-Door Sedan Offered For Sale…Again

If you didn’t quite had $800,000 at your disposal when this 4-door Ferrari was offered for sale back in 2011, you can try to buy it now.

Mind you, its steep price tag remains basically unchanged, as the current seller asks $795,000 for the thing. But bear in mind it’s a unique concept, designed by Pininfarina to celebrate its 50th anniversary and the car is named after Batista Farina’s nickname, Pinin. Pinin-Farina, get it?

It would be a stretch to call this car the only-four door Ferrari ever made, because there were many 456 M variations created by diverse coachbuilders for the Sultan of Brunei. But the Pinin is the only one recognized by Ferrari – including Enzo – and that alone makes it kind of special.

Furthermore, the concept was designed from the beginning as a 4-door sedan and, truth be told, it doesn’t look out of its place with the additional second row of doors. Speaking of looks, the car’s details are astonishing, even if it looks surprisingly minimalistic at first glance. It has masked A-pillars and very thin B-pillars, while the greenhouse makes it seem airy and simple.

If you’re thinking that it looks like a polished sculpture, you wouldn’t be too far off. The car was initially conceived as a static design study, for the 1980 Turin motor show, but somebody along the way thought it was a good idea to make it fully functional.

So, after an intricate restoration, the car was fitted with a flat-12 carbureted 5.0-litre engine “borrowed” from a 512 BB, which develops somewhere around 360 horses. That’s adequate, to say the least.

The car is offered for sale by Purosangue Maranello, the dealer which had the superb Ferrari Testa D’oro up for grabs a while back. Furthermore, according to their site, the Pinin project was cancelled because the Italians didn’t want to go against the big German sedan manufacturers.

      You would be better off with an Aston Martin Rapide. I’m 52 years old and this car came out when I was in high school. It has 35 year old technology with an $800K!!??

        35 year old one-off, non-production technology. Built by Italians. What could go wrong?

        I hear you my friend, but in the crazy fantasy world in which i could have this, any concern given to practicality wouldn’t matter.

        And i would have the Lagonda instead of the Rapide 🙂

    It’s so 80’s the radio only plays Danger Zone… And that’s not a compliment. The 80’s will always stay as the worst era for car design.

    This is a no brainer. If I had the money, this baby would be sitting in my living room. Furniture out! There may be more extravagant Ferrari models out there, but did Enzo sit in them? No. That alone makes this money. Lets not forget the gorgeous lines and rarity. Sigh.
