Sergio Pininfarina passed away in his Turin, Italy home today at 85, so in honor of the renowned designer, we've compiled a list of our top 10 favorite designs from oldest to newest.
Pininfarina's father started as a coachbuilder and founded the company. Those roots are evidenced in the 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, to which the company contributed coaches. Today, we associate the 8C name with a modern Alfa sports car, but its styling is still influenced by the original.
I am sorry to hear of Mr. Pininfarina's passing. I met him several times, once in Los Angeles when he passed me the keys to the 1st US F550. He was always the gentleman and he loved Ferrari. He was a brilliant designer for all things and a great friend to Enzo Ferrari. He will be missed by all who knew him.
