The very first body, Farina designed was the Lancia Dilambdia in 1931.

With increasing fame, Sergio Pininfarina was also hired for project in England and the US. Among other things, we designed the Chevrolet Corvette Rondine in 1962, which never made it to the car dealers. This is probably one of the reasons, why collectors pay top dollar nowadays to get their hand on one.

The Ferrari Dino was supposed to be a entry level, mid engine rear-drive sportscar that was fully designed by Sergio and soon it became so popular, that the Dino line was reimplemented into Ferrari.
