Pininfarina is bringing six of its most impressive models to the Parco Valentino Turin Auto Show next week.
Four of the six Pininfarina-penned cars will be displayed at the prestigious Prototypes Exhibition that’s designed to shine a spotlight on coachbuilders and design studios.
The first car, Pininfarina’s Lancia Florida II, was first unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1957 and is owned by the family of company founder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. Next up will be the Pininfarina Sigma Grand Prix, a revolutionary Formula One concept conceived in 1969 that still turns heads to this day. Interestingly, it features safety tanks and an onboard fire protection system which subsequent Formula One cars started using.
Attendees will be in for an absolute treat
Two more modern but equally desirable Pininfarina vehicles, the Mythos and the Sergio, are also bound for the event. The Mythos, unveiled at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show, is based on the Ferrari Testarossa. Similarly, the Sergio is also based around a Ferrari, this time the 458 Spider and, like the Mythos, is also a two-seater barchetta. After its unveiling as a concept, six units were produced.
During the event’s Supercar Night Parade on June 6th, company chairman Paolo Pininfarina will pilot a bespoke Jaguar XJS for the first time on public roads. The car will then be displayed in the courtyard of the Valentino Castle on June 6th.
Last, but not least, those flying in to Turin-Caselle airport until June 12th will be greeted by the Pininfarina Sintesi, a concept from 2008 with autonomous driving functions and a bold design.
