New Petersen Museum exhibit celebrates Pininfarina

By

In concert with its recent re-opening, the Petersen Automotive Museum has also unveiled a new exhibit celebrating the 90-year history of Italian design firm and coachbuilder Pininfarina, and the exhibit is open through Dec. 5.

The four cars in the “Aesthetic of Motoring: 90 Years of Pininfarina” display include:

• 1931 Cadillac Model452A Boattail Roadster, the first Pininfarina body mounted on a non-Italian chassis
• 1947 Cisitalia 202 Coupe, widely considered one of the most attractive vehicles ever built
• 1967 Ferrari 365P Berlinetta Speciale “Tre Posti,” the last vehicle bodied by Pininfarina for a private client
• 2019 Automobili Pininfarina “Battista,” an early design model of the luxury hypercar rather than a functioning automobile.

“With its commitment to elegant, aerodynamic design and small-scale production, Pininfarina has created some of the most innovative and revered car designs in the history of the automobile,” said Terry L. Karges, the museum’s executive director.
