One-off Ferrari Pinin four-door coupe to be auctioned in London

Article by Christian A., on October 19, 2011

Earlier today we talked about the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition, a car priced at $375,000 which will be available in a very limited edition of just 10 units. If this is not enough for you we have something more expensive and unique: the Ferrari Pinin. This is the only four-door coupe ever made to wear the Ferrari logo (except some models sold to the Sultan of Brunei and other very rich people around the world).

Built by the well-known Italian and engineering firm Pininfarina (the company which recently announced that will focus only on designing cars) back in 1980, the Ferrari Pinin celebrated company’s 50-year anniversary and was given the nickname of company founder Battista "Pinin" Farina.

For those interested, the car will be auctioned by RM Auction in London on October 26 and it is expected to fetch a price of between 540,000 euros and 620,000 euros. The car which will be auctioned was sold to a collector almost 20 years ago and Pininfarina officials said that they had lost track of the Pinin since that moment.

Apparently, this car is the original model that was unveiled at the 1980 Turin Auto Show. What is more interesting is that Pininfarina built a second unit of the car, which was shown to Enzo Ferrari. The company founder didn’t like the car and the car was later destroyed.
