work in progress exhibitions lab

Pinin Farina created a two door prototype then, in 1955, presented this example at Turin and Geneva Motor Shows, bought directly in the Pininfarina stand by Kjell Qvale, US Lancia main dealer.
The car passed through various owner until 1993 when Jules M. Heumann, chairman of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, bought it.
This car based on the Aurelia B56S chassis is the one of four examples in the four door configuration and the unique left hand drive. This example won the best in class at the 2010 Villa d’Este councours, then at the Turin’s one and during the Ludwigsburg’s one; here this car obtained a jury special prize for the design.
The importance of this car is not only its breathtaking line.
It is a breaking point in the history of the car style and until the ‘70s, this car influenced the world car production.
The monolithic design, with cars rounded and compact, like they were carved from a solid block, was replaced from an archcitecture made with combined panels.
The void in the pavilion improves its streng- th of expression.
