Luca di Montezemolo, Piero Ferrari and Pininfarina will open an exhibition of Sergio Pininfarina's life later this month
14 October 2012

An exhibition celebrating the life of Sergio Pininfarina opens this month. The exhibition at the Museo Ferrari in Maranello looks back at Pininfarina’s collaborations with Ferrari.

Le grandi Ferrari di Sergio Pininfarina - Sergio Pininfarina’s great Ferraris – is spread over three halls. Hall one displays race cars including the Le Mans-winning 250 LM, the 250 SWB which Stirling Moss steered to win the Touring Trophy and Pininfarina’s experimental F1 Sigma.

Hall two focuses on the Ferrari-Pininfarina concepts, with a line-up including the Modulo, P6 and four-door Pinin. The final hall plays host to the iconic road car range, with 11 models including the BB prototype originally shown at the 1971 Turin motor show.

Doors open to the public between 27 October to 7 January.

Is that not a 246GT Dino? Can't remember a 206GT looking like that!!!!

Definitely a 206 GT (the spinners retaining the wheels gives it away).

The 206 GT was the pre-curser to the 246 series, basically the same car but fitted with a 2 litre V6, centre spinners retaining the wheels and an exposed fuel cap to name but a few detail differences.

 

This became the 246 GT later on, with a 2.4 litre V6, wheel nuts instead of spinners and the fuel filler was sunken into the body and had a fuel flap.

If I remeber correctly the 206GT was also aluminium bodied (although you can't spot this from a picture obviously!) which made it a bit pricey to make when Ferrari were trying to make a Porsche rival, the 246 was Steel bodied which made it cheaper to produce, but heavier hence the larger engine.

I'm saving up for my Ferrari Daytona (replica).

The 275GTB and 275GTB/4 are my favourites, perfect lines and proportions. It's a shame Ferrari don't produce anything as elegant today.

i believe the 250 SWB to be the perfect design and has never been equaled by anyone ever
